    This was a nice 10K job I did for my of my CA second home customers. He has a $230,000 Ferrari in the garage. Later we did the front yard as well.

    I beat out Native Land Design to get this job years ago. They are a much bigger company.

    This was back in May 2001. I took a weeks vacation from my AutoCad draftsmen job to do this design & install. Came back from vacation and told them it's been nice but I quit. The whole backyard was a $10K job.

    This job was done for a past maintenance customer who's service I had discontinued. They live out in the country just a little too far and it just wasn't worth it.

    They bought a new house, installed a pool, and gave me a call out of the blue to come give them a bid. We did the pool & lighting and it was a nice job.

    There isn't much I won't do. A tree this size would be outside the realm of what most little guys would want to deal with. I like a challenge.

    Here are some stonework pictures. My mason really likes to do the saw cut patterned look instead of the plain random pattern. The saw cut pattern gives you the look of expensive tile & stone all in one.

    I was going to redo this gate frame since it was poorly built but both companies that were going to do the work have required too much baby sitting. With our water restrictions still in place for this summer it's not a good time to spend money if you don't have too. This gate has held up for two years but I did not trust the longevity at all.

    I wanted to buy some adjustable wheels to try to give the gate some support and take a lot of the load off the frame. I thought if I could get some support wheels the gate may last many more years. I could not find any heavy duty height adjustable wheels for gates at all so I modified a set of boat jacks.

    A little drilling and grinding was required but they did the trick just fine. A few turns of the jacks and all the sag is gone. A lot of stress has been taken off the POS frame and hopefully it will last many more years.

    I did the little pad for the drop rods last year and that little sucker has 480 lbs of concrete in it. I hope I never have to demo that pad because it's also full of rebar.
