    WELL short and sweet of it. bid on a job and was told i was way over the competition. I went by there about 7months later which was a few days ago and this is what i saw



    I just laugh and say oh well i want $110 a yard delivered, installed and usually cut out. this place i cgarge to edge because its commercial and you have a mess from being cheap the front beds have so many weeds in some places you could not just remove the mulch.

    Oh well. People get what they pay for. You should go back and give them quote for fixing the landscape and then one for doing it the right way! :hammerhead:

    What's wrong with it? They used a great weed barrier! Looks terrific if you ask me.

    Weed blocker and mulch all in one step.

    Well, at least they didn't have plastic bags blowing all over the neighborhood while they were mulching.
