Nice job. I like the curved bed by the walk in the 2nd picture. I love doing that stuff. One question..it looks like those 2 little cedars or boxwoods are right on the edge of the garden. Maybe an optical illusion from the picture?? Anyway looks really nice man.

Thanks Wat! Those boxwoods are about 2ft off the edge..just the angle of the pic. And Steve, when doing an out of state job, take into account if it is red dirt/ clay or not. We had a hell of a time with that stuff...nothing like Pittsburghs dirt, and they charge more per yard of topsoil! Also...keep In mind that each state had different animals!!! We had to leave thursday morning so we spent a good bit of wed night into Thursday morning working and a Black Bear rolled up on us! Like a gazelle I was outta there! Play dead my a** . and don't count on other landscape companies to follow through with their word! I had set up a delivery with another company to deliver flagstone...long story short he never showed up ..you know " ahh Im not gonna deal with this guy and his $300 bucks when I can get this other $1000 job finished kind of scenario. Everything went smooth. Only issues I had was that I blew a hole in my finger working with the mortar on the flagstone.

How did that happen? From repetitive motion of mixing it or something?
