    Looks Way Better.

    Just a shame most of that stuff wasn't Planted correctly to begin with. I see a lot of stuff that just doesn't have the correct room to grow and hold a more natural shape.

    The only other suggestion I would have is to not use the hedge shears on the Weeping Trees and shrubs. I use hand shears and alternated each cut so they look a little more natural when your finished.

    That and you thin them out a bit.

    Yea A lot of companies here just toss stuff in the ground. They don't tell the clients that a pine tree planted 2 ft from the house will dig into the foundation in in 5 years.



    I wish I coulda got $300 for the job.

    10.5 hours with 7 guys? I would have been in 3000.- plus materials range!

    If you would have charged $650.- you would have charged around $8.85 per man hour...:dizzy: If that is your rate, let me get back in to the business and i'll use you as a sub...

    Open your eyes:sleeping:, look at the pictures and do a little match, they are joking buddy...

    Just for the brush removal and trim work, that could have taken only one guy, one day. Even then, with all the beds and such, maybe in the 1k range.

    Now, if he added rock, removed stumps, cut edges, etc... then ya, price would skyrocket, but I don't see that.

    If it took 70 man hours to do that job, I would have a heart attack.

    I dont know where 300 or 650 came from cuz i don't see it here, but 20 ton stone install on a landscape reno would be at least 4000 to 5000 for me. Over all looks decent.

    To the OP, did you wheel the stone or loader/mini ex???
