I gave a friend of mine (landscaper also), a paver job at one of my accounts. I don't do that work, and I know he's good at it. i go there this week, and the customer tells me she no longer will be needing me. I had the first thought you just had...... turns out, she liked the paver work so much, she's having him continue the pavers throughout the whole yard!! There will only be a small planting bed. I like pavers but, picture an entire yard of it, not very "homey" at all. The lady was very nice to me, as she always has been, so I'm not bitter. I joked that I should've recommended someone who does bad work. in the future, I'll keep my mouth shut.
