    I did this wall last year. I got 3 more jobs while working on this one wall..It's funny how people see things and just stop and want something done for the heck of it.

    Looks great! How long did it take? Did you have to get a building permit?

    Wall looks real nice.

    Landscaping behind it is fair at best. Is that your work or the homeowner's?

    The wall is very nice. Great curves and it looks to flow well. What is the fascination with people and topiaries? They have there place in some landscapes mostly japanese gardens. I would have put a patio tree where that cherub is residing.

    Thanks for the replies guys..
    Lawnworks.. The wall didn't meet the required height for a permit in this town, if memory serves me right the max. height without a permit is 4 feet and we were under that.
    GreenMonster..We only did the wall and backfill..The homeowner tried to save money and do the landscaping themselves.
    It took us roughly 50-55 man hours to do the entire project. Give or take a few hours.
    I'm doing a raised patio, 18 x 32, for them this spring..should be fun...

    Nice work.............

    If you happen to do any work in Bucks county Pennsylvania there is a request in one of the forums here from a homeowner or such for a small patio...................



    I'm trying to think which forum it was in..........
