Quick story, last yr about this time I went to this existing customer's (about 8 yrs) house for a new hardscape project around their pool. The project consisted of a new patio (1500sqft) random design, two 4' sheer descents, piers, sitting walls and fire pit. Gave them stone samples, a color design and a price of $32,000. Removal of the old 4'' concrete patio and other structures were included in that price. Apparently that was expensive because two weeks later there were trucks at the house laying out my design to the tee. When approached about the situation, the customer said a friend came in $6,000 less on my drawing. I was F'ING PISSED, not because i lost the job but because my design was STOLEN!!! Well i got a call in the spring to come back to this job for a planting est. and this what i saw. I laughed my a$$ of when i got back in my truck. Pay cheap, get cheap!
