Here it is..Dawgwoods BIGGEST job yet. I feel like I say that every time Dawgwoods gets the go ahead for a project which is cool because it just shows us how much we grow after every job Dawgwood completes. Anyways, this has been one heck of a roller coaster. This job took 5 days and I had three team members giving their all to help complete the task at hand. This project entailed a stump removal, bringing in 4.5 yards of topsoil for the front bed, 10 yards of mulch for the front, back, and sides, planting plants, putting in a plastic edge, laying weed fabric down, a lot of grading, and a lot of weeding.
It was a roller coaster because we had a lot of highs and very low lows while tackling this specific project. It took a couple days longer than I anticipated, we broke our tractor twice trying to take the stump out of the ground from the tree in the first picture, and we spent more money in material due to under estimating, and a lot of miscommunication took place. The property sits on top of clay so that was a mission in its self to hand dig in. Although my team and I had a tough time completing the job we walked away with SO MANY lessons learned. On the way back from picking up the final check with my assistant, I listed off 11 things off the top of my head we could have done differently as well as things we could improve on for future jobs. I’ll take this learning curve any day. How else are you suppose to grow, learn, and improve? All in all the job is complete and the clients are satisfied with the end result.
Huge shoutout to Rick for taking care of the stump removal. Huge shoutout to my assistant Gabby for helping me with the paper work as well as giving her all while working on site. Huge shoutout to Dario for giving his all on site too✊🏽
