    Today i did a weeding and mulch job and the homeowner told me to pull this ground cover crap from one of the beds. After doing it she was mad that i removed it and now wants it back. She said she planted it years ago and cant remember what its called and i have no idea. It came up like a carpet and had small white flowers. Any ideas??? Thanks

    So she is mad that you did what she asked? Who is paying for the replacement?

    She was pointing at the Creeping Charlie, but he didn't like the phlox... :)

    Did she physically show you what to remove or was it verbal like remove that over there?

    I had something like this happen to me years ago, but just the opposite. Lady wanted her flowerbeds clean out, i gave her a price. i went there to do the work and she was not home. i got all the leaves out, pulled all the weeds, applied mulch. went back a few days later to get paid and she was telling me i did not do the job. turns out she wanted the plants, flowers and shrubs all cleaned out of the bed.
