    Thing about folks like that is that they like to brood over you as you work and if any little thing goes wrong, they're likely to withhold pmt. I have a friend that works construction in town and he was told the same thing by a customer. Last I heard, the customer still owed him $8k.

    I measure all my regular properties for reference when applying chemicals. It does take more time in the beginning but it pays in the end. It sure makes ordering sod and bed coverage a lot easier. Shoveling mulch back onto the truck is not my idea of fun. gotta have the tools!!!!!!!!!!
