    if you were giving a bid, for takeing out shrubbery, and disposing of same, what would be the "professional" way to word it. like this:" TEAR OUT AND DISPOSE OF SHRUBBERY." or like this:" REMOVEL AND DISPOSAL OF SHRUBBERY". no, this isn't for me, i'm trying to settle an argument with a friend. he writes his bids as " TEAR OUT SHRUBBERY." i told him the better wording would be " REMOVE SHRUBBERY". opinions please, thank you

    I agree that "remove" sounds more professional

    Your friend wouldn't have a last name of Python, first name Monty, would he???

    While you're add it, make sure you make a note about a Holy Grail or something as well.

    Always in search of the Holy Grail.

    That says it all. You even argue w/ friends. Most of us would just debate the issue. Anyway to answer your question for "your friend", I usually submit removAL and disposal of shrubs and stumps. Get yourself a dictionary or spell checker Gedd, or do you go w/ the old rhymes w/ shovel, must end in el? As in go to..... :D

    Removal and disposal of shrubs, brush, trees, rocks and/or other debris as deemed necessary, and agreed upon.

    Replace "Tear Out and Dispose" with the word Excavation. Sounds more professional and saves space. The new description could read either, "Excavation of Shrubbery", or "Shrubbery Excavation" depending on context of use. :cool:
