CHEESE2009 is on a distinguished road

So I made my visit to one of my snow removal customers & he's going to hire me once another company does a few tasks that I'm not able to do.

We walked around the house & when I spotted things, I let him know if I was able to do them or not.

So I have the fun job of fixing his backyard walkway.

I plan to remove his stepping stones, clean them off. Rip out all the weeds that were bugging him, which were poking out through the stones. Then I flip the soil & level it out, put down "landscaping paper?" , then putting the stones back in place.

Then I have to dig out a foot around the pool, install the "landscaping paper" & install guards. Then he will purchase the stones & I'll make it beautiful.

I can't wait to take before & after pictures!

The job I couldn't do:

He showed me his tree, the roots were taking over his front lawn & he wanted them to be buried & covered with sod.

I've put down sod before, but through the company I worked for previously & I wasn't able to estimate the price, so instead of screwing myself over, I told him I'd find someone to do it for cheap.
