      Looks good. Im not a fan of the column type arborvitaes. I like the cone or pyramid shape myself. Nice job though, nice clean edge. I love doing projects like that.

          Great job!

          I know you said a day and a half but how many man hours was that total?

          Also, would you do it differently if you could do it again?

            I think we were right around 18 hrs. If I could go back and do it again I'd charge a little more for dealing with the very hard / rocky dirt we delt with during turfing and planting. Turns out that the area was a swamp land at one time and the guy used bricks rocks boulders contrete for fill!

              that looks great!
              Did you just [basically] double materials to cover labor?

              Also as far as 24 trees at $73 a piece, that is $1,752 alone

                He was a family friend it would have been more like $3800 . I get the trees for $60 tell the customer I can get them for $90 and my 20 percent discount will get them to you for $73ish, and I maintain my nursery ladies lawn so she owed me ...we barter often !
