been working on developing my hardscaping skills as it is really easy to sell hardscaping as a landscaper. Concrete slab are not in. everyone wants it stamped to look like a paver which just pits and looks like crap. or they have enough for a real paving system. It is really easy to use my 100 plus lawn accounts to sell them on chimney liners, repoint jobs, new steps, but hardly a sitting wall fire pit or patio out of concrete brick or block.
I am at a loss as to to necessity of the ladders and LVL's and other forms of scaffolding -- "special ops". the concrete wont hurtcha' get on some knee boards or sliders and rock and roll.
this driveway was crawled in its entirety. joints and all.
light broom finish.
one more thing.... if you gonna picture frame the edges.... do it right.
(lousy photo.... first gen blackberry forgive me)

loooking fresh guys.
the LVL was mostly for the edging. the concrete was in straight sun so we finished on knee boards then I ran the pole edger so they could move to the next boxes. Didnt want to slow up at all. then its like, why kneel if you have the lvl?? haha. I just got one of those kobalt kneelers, might get a few more. the handles are nice.
Is there any other way but to do it right?
dad doing his garage with knee boards - love this foam, light smooth and sturdy
stoop I wrapped up today. did the landing with 1'x1' tumbled pieces of 2" bluestone tread. never used this before but the customer requested it and gave me the # of the place that sells it since thats what his other two stoops have. He also had the bold brick to match the house. needs to be washed down but the mortar was wet on the treads
took this at dads firepit on fathers day
mag finish patio I did last week. 12 yds with the walkway
some pics were taken before sod was installed
before anyone says anything... she made me put those stepping stones in there. the customer is ...always? right?
pool patio, bullnose, and sod install
Before---sketchy. these people had some serious vision. I would have filled the pool lol.
and finally some fan mail. great customers always referring me. makes the job that much better to get an appreciation email a year later
