    Concrete masonry and pavers. I dabble in landscape. Check the website rjfalcone.com. How about you?

    Dumped 30 yds of bamboo at omni today too. Didn't know they sold it. Good to know.

    nice! pavers are def. something I would love to get into. I just do lawn maintenance (weekly cutting, design, etc etc) and plowing for now. Its just me solo doing 35+ weekly accounts, cant find good help.. Might be looking to team up with a bigger outfit and become a foreman soon.. not to sure

    What areas do you service? I just met with an irrigation contractor to exchange some cards and stuff but if we overlap i would like to pass work back and forth etc
