    HI All - I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on installing steel c channel (or similar) vertically within a dump trailer bed to allow it to be subdivided by sliding in a piece of 3/4" plywood or similar. We have a few PJ Dump trailers. For smaller projects where there may be a few materials...

  3. Bidding, Estimating and Pricing
    Greetings all. I understand you may not share pricing information, and that's ok. For those who will, please provide me some feedback. I have worked for a lawn care company for years, and decided to begin bidding mulch jobs on my own. I started relatively cheap and people commented on how...

  7. Hardscaping
    Say, Within the past month I've had two plans come across my desk where the landscape architect is specifying compacting a 2" sand bed between my tamped base material and the pavers. I'm used to screeding a 1" sand bed, not compacting a 2" sand bed. Am I missing something? Does anyone else...

I'm planning...

    Do you install seasonal color beds? If you do, where do you get your flowers? Why do you buy from them? What makes the flowers the best, for you? How many flats (or other units) do you buy a season? Do you like 4 inch, 6 packs, or some other size flower, best? What could a grower or nursery do...
