    Has anyone had any problems with Kohls. The contract says the beds have to cultivated 3 times a year to prevent soil compaction. Are they serious? Will they check this?

    Is it common for a chain (like Kohls, or a walMart) to have their own contract?

    I think it's smart of them to have a clause like that (cultivating the beds) - doesn't that help keep the beds in good shape & healthy? also, I can imagine some LCO's wouldn't do it that often (if at all, in some cases).

    WHAT??? You mean that they want you to disturb that sacred 2" of soil they put in the islands to cover the construction debris???

    Of course they're serious it's in their specs isn't it, you did include that in your bid, right? Will they check, more than likely not.

    I would bet they won't check it until it is time to rebid next year. Then it will be part of the list of reasons to pay you less to do the job.
