    Thank you! I consider our company very new to hardscaping and we are currently learning on each job we do, I'm very fortunate for having 2 guys on our team that has past experience with stone work, so they bring some experience to the stone jobs. I enjoy certain types of stone work, i mainly enjoy the natural stone jobs alittle more but do appreciate a beautiful hardscape job and I truly admire some of the great hardscapers on this site.
    For wall base we compact 2a stone and lay stone dust for our base, for pavers we compact 2a stone and lay sand for our base, for natural stone we compact 2a stone and use stone dust for our base, Good luck to you as well bud thanks for checking in. For some good advice on hardscaping look up Alldayri he would be the guy to ask for advice on the hardscaping tips.

    Took the crew to the lake today for a company picnic, spent the whole day there on the boat, swimming, fishing, and plenty of good food and beer, was a great time. Looking forward to our next picnic next month.

    Very nice work! When those cone flower spread and the rest fills in 2-3 years from now that bed will be outstanding. Good job.

    Haha yeah figured someone would notice that on the sign. Are you talking about that mason block wall on the previous job with the mulch and plants?

    I figured thats what you meant thanks. Yeah I never did stone work like that, but I know one of my guys has, maybe I will look into that, I'm sure that would be fun and make some money. Cheers!
