    Well, ive been working on this pretty big landscape install job for the past 4 weeks with my crew. the first 2 weeks i had between 5-8 guys working and the 3rd and 4th i had 2.

    anyway, we had to clear everything out first, there was ALOT. then dig a trench to put allan block in, we put about 350feet of alan block. there is a total of 1500 alan blocks in place now.

    we also put in stairs from the patio to the lawn, the stairs are going to look amazing once the patio blocks get put in.

    and right now were working on the patio, which is 1900sq feet. were reusing the same bricks, just washing them up and re tamping everything and making it level because its all jagged now.

    then were going to plan the flowers and install the mulch. but im getting Matt from Ground Cover Solutions to lay the mulch because its cheaper for me to contract it out then to do it myself.

    then we should be done. about 5 weeks to do it. took a little longer than expected, but then again if we would have had the right tools to begin with it would have taken about 2 weeks.

    here are some pics.

    this is a pic of the alan block around the back perimeter
