I'm guessing Bob inspired "The Life of Pi".

I still quote Bob once in a while...When I see a new lawn guy in one of my neighborhoods...

"Get out of my turf, yard boy!"

I still personally install the landscapes on my spec home projects but I gave up being a "landscaper" in '09 after about 25 years in the business and well over $50 million in construction projects.

Re: Who Else Does Landscaping???


We actually had an OK January so far, last year was not good for us at all. I am really hoping it gets better this year, if not I may leave the business (been in business for 25 years) its not worth the heartache.
