    The website was put on the back burner and I need that up and going this winter for the coming season.....I really want to push it. I've had a couple designers fall through on it.

    The homeowners I've gotten to know very well and are very good people. He's a manager of a local bulk stone quarry and the boulders came from there. Everybody else has brown boulders, I told him I wanted gray to match with the patio so we've basically got large pieces of #57 that are about 3,000lbs each. They're arranged in an "S", backfilled and planted with a lot of perennials.

    Plants on the job:
    Hydrangea 'Annabell' (white)......behind wall
    Crape Myrtle (white)
    White Coneflower
    Purple (pink) Conflower
    Catmint
    Perennial Salvia
    Sarcococca...ground cover, evergreen
    Boxwood 'Green Velvet'.....very nice shape
    Climbing Hydrangea....both sides of the door
    Pansies....light blue
    Vibrunum
    Perennial Grasses (Karl's Foster)

    Dark stone + cool colors = dramatic look

    I need to talk to the next neighbor actually. I need to land one more job to close my year.

    Master Cut.....Ravenwood

    Its over priced. That 4' square box with 18" sides cost $1,000 and at a stretch does 100SF. Its real stone but the cut the face off of field stone so that oyu have a more uniform thickness. Easy to work with but when I can get a pallet of fieldstone for $220 it doesn't make much sense. I don't plant to use it again unless spec'd.
