    Hey Bill,
    Have you ever used allanblock, old country courtyard? I am bidding a job and they want to use this for a double sided patio wall and build in grill. Thanks

    Alan is available out here, but honestly, I don't use it. Keystone sends us too much work and it makes economic sense to remain loyal. Plus, I personally like the way Keystone works better than an open cell block.

    bill, what kind of man hours do you have in a basic grill?? Looking to do one just curious how much time i will have in one. I know the more you do the faster you probably get.

    That type of work is what has me interested in doing hardscape work. After many years doing golf course construction as a shaper and a project superintendent, I realize I miss the satisfaction of creating something lasting and beautiful. Your website is very inspiring!

    Pro Lawn:

    We have similar past work histories. For 10 years we built courses, my jobs were shaping, propogation, general superintendant. Thanks for the compliments.

    Bascially, for a 3x8' BBQ, you got 4 hours in the surround, then 20 hours in framing and pouring the top, then another 10 hours in tile and finish work.

    Gas and electric are separate items, as every grille uses a little different configuraiton of client needs.
