    Has anyone ever had or seen a chart that might show average production rates for installing brick, block, drainage pipe? I was starting to create my own, including straight walls, vs curved walls....but i dont feel like re-inventing the wheel, if there is a good one out there

    Vander kooi complete guide to hardscaping. Read it, learn it, love it, live it.

    That book alone will open eyes to your business and show you where you need to improve.

    I can't speak highly enough about it. It helped make my business what it is today.

    I'm a vanderkooi fan too.

    Although when I was younger I tracked every minute for each and every task we did.

    I found the website to Vander Kooi but they do not offer the book that DVS mentioned above. They list a lot of business books, and one thats the complete guide to landscaping. I'd really like to know where I could find this book, but i did find the Hardscapes Magazine which is free. I subscribed to it so hopefully there will be helpful info in there
