    Join Landscape Ontario, or go on their website, they list everything your going to need. They have a source book too, with supplier contacts of everything.

    I thought I read he's looking to start a Garden center-those prices hes quoting you is retail. For aggregate, armour stone etc, and that kinda stuff your going to deal with a quarry direct and get prices landed in your yard for half if not a third of what hes quoting you. You may as well pull your pants down and bend over if your gonna deal with that guy-help the brother out-dont try to shaft him, please.
