    I wouldnt get paid if it looked like that so probably not a lot.

    Plant placement and selection reeks of lawn mowing guy turned installer.

    I'd send him on a hike through the closes state park. When he got back i'd ask him if he still thought his job looked natural.

    Plants where placed and pick by owner of company. This the stone I was given to work with, not your natural pond stone.
    Here is a pond done with top rock and some barn stone.

    Those bond lines are horrible! As are the gaps in your radius turns. Apparently you have creativity, but would need some fine tuning in order to run a crew IMO. You would probably be in the $12-$18hr range around here.
