    I know we have alot of talented hardscapers on this site. How many years did it take until you started to look at your finished jobs and say "Damn i am good."

    Just curious.

    Day #1...............................just kidding

    Im realy not that good at patios. I just hire dudes that are realy good. One brick forman has about 12 years exp. and the other over twenty!

    with walls i think your good when you have done anything over 6' high or anything over 300' long and its still straight!

    I would say it probably took us 3 seasons or so until we really got our installation methods down pat. Although to this day we are always learning how to perfect and heighten our efficiencies.

    21 yrs in business and I'm still learning. I thought I was good the first year I started, now I don't think I was very good at all. I always rate my jobs and never give it a 10. Always room for improvement.
