    it looks nice but i dont know if it looks like a 100g's. i think i would have used a diffrent stone that would have looked darn good but been 1/4 the price. oh well if you have it spend it.

    If you can find a cheaper stone shipped to me than I would be happy to know about it. I have worked in stone sales wholesale/retail in this area and there is none to be had. I can get it quarry direct for 20 a ton but that is unprocessed and doesn't include shipping. There is still alot to be completed at that price: railing, concrete pad, water feature, statue, landscaping, electric, and irrigation. Ill keep the pics coming as it goes.

    I actually liked a stone out of Michigan but they wanted 375 a ton even at that quantity. Thanks but no thanks on that one.

    its funny that even with the bobcat in the first picture until you see someone standing on it the project looked small. those are some big stones!

    I'm more interested in how awesome the football field looks lol. It is the best high school field I've ever seen except for the seating. Good job!

    wow looks great, I can't believe the school had 100gs to spend on a project like that. around here you're lucky if they have a shade tree in the budget. doing any plantings to take away the "big pile of rock" look?

    It is actually covington catholic high school. I went to St. X(now that is a stadium:)) The plantings will be going in shortly just have to get all the other hardscaping done. We are going to stay simple with knockouts, sweet bays, river birch, and some pines.
