    anyone else enjoy tiny planting jobs? make $3oo for about 2 hours work? this is a small one i did today... nothing dramatic, just some perrenials and some small evergeens, and low voltage lighting, and the brick wall edging....

    I don't see the Garden Gnome in the after. Did he pick up a job with Travelocity?

    Seriously, it makes a good follow up to the thread on using $250 in plant materials to improve a site. There is no question that it is a dramatic improvement.

    bill, i didn't realize it was you posting here, looks strange with avatar. i love the smaller jobs over the bigger anyday. in and out and by the time amigo is done puting the planting he ground, i'm ready with the hose to start cleaning up! pay the man and send us on our way.
    i don't remember which amigo i had last time we spoke, but this guy i have now, is a machine. best worker i've had in years. he's one of those rare mexi's who don't mind working 4 hours or 12 hours a day, so there's no pressure on me to find work on a slow day. everything runs smooth..
