    Keith: this is how you do landscaping.
    Customers: You left my water running’ 😱
    Me watching this video: never leave the customers water running. 😂

    Who in the world can dislike a video like this ?🤦🏽‍♂️ …. idiots

  4. Danger Mouse on August 6, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Dude, ya gotta stop worth the air quotes. Most of the times you use them, there’s no irony, you’re saying the actual name of the thing…

  5. Alex Sem on August 6, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Thats a lot of "air quotes" bud

  6. Chop_py on August 6, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    How much do you charge for fabric

  7. Seth H on August 6, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    What’s your labor Rate for putting down the fabric? I have some guys work for me and need to pay them to put it down.

  8. itry panda on August 6, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    I get a kick out of your videos at times.

    Theres times I watch some of your videos. Just for inspiration at times.

    This one here was a little more. Like some other videos.
    When I’m already thinking about "pricing" or "am I do this right (business or the work) ".
    I’ll run across one of your videos that I needed at that moment. This is one of them. The mulch part not so much but the deeper stuff is what I needed. An it showed me. I’m going in the right direction, again.

    The best is you being a empath, aries and a business owner.
    Same here.
    It hurts your soul with business decisions that have to be made at times.
    Same here.
    Thank you for being you.
    Some day I would like to shake your hand.

    Thanks for this one keith. I was actually pondering this last week. I haven’t had but 2 small mulch jobs this year (maybe im not selling them like i should be) but neither one wanted the fabric put down.
    Edited for typos.

  10. J. Hernandez on August 6, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    I hope people are really taking in the wisdom you’re dropping. I tell all my customers I don’t claim to be the cheapest but I make sure the job is right. People buy from people they like and people they feel connected to.

  11. Matt S on August 6, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Jesus, stop with the "air" "quotes".

  12. Roman Zykov on August 6, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Take off your shades

  13. losttheplot26 on August 6, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    No fabric. Just organic mulch.

  14. nick chill on August 6, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    I learned alot from this one and know I want Mexican food…lol.

  15. Adventure Dad on August 6, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    This guy is full of himself. One of those contractors who thinks only he does Gods work. What a tool. Id never hire him.

  16. Gary Gill on August 6, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Beautiful beautiful beautifully explained

  17. Jill Even on August 6, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    I charge a lot. I explain to my clients, barrier method is not idealistic. As a master gardener, I hate it, it’s time consuming, technical, and can’t ensure plant health. Barrier methods creates potential mold, mildew, disease. It doesn’t promise low maintenance and can/does carry a host of pests, some mulch is horrible for pets if it’s treated with herbacide and pesticide and the dogs chew and eat it. You set yourself up for a host of liabilities, if you don’t disclose this. If you choose to install, always overestimate, save any extra for extra projects. Great video Keith.

  18. Mick Loiu on August 6, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Get a (younger) helper, Oldman

  19. Paul M on August 6, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Does water get through that stuff?

  20. Princ Buddah on August 6, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    You never said how much to charge for paying weed barrier fabric

  21. Michael on August 6, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    stop doing air quotes

  22. Matt Nis on August 6, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Soil doesn’t breathe. Water doesn’t penetrate as well.

  23. Refresh Landscape & Lighting on August 6, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Great video Kalfas, getting a refresher for three jobs coming up. 👍🏻

  24. certified30 on August 6, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    there is nothing to debate, that fabric has a life span of about 5 years max, no matter how many ounces it got or "commercial, contractor" grade you wanna call it, pointy grass blades will poke through and will ruin your flower bed and you will end up removing it. I bought a house where the idiot who owned it before thought it was a good idea to dump a truck load of rocks over it, and now I am stuck removing 7 tons of rocks to put SOD instead.

  25. Trai Garland on August 6, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    I like this

    If this is your first video by Keith , Hit that subscribe button, The guy knows what he is talking about and full of valuable knowledge you will not regret it.

    Keith, i Had To Laugh at this video with the message you explained at the end, I’m getting use to estimating now and still a bit hit and miss time wise and with materials but im learning, Uncle Kalfas teaching the right ways and making me honest with myself.

    Did a job for a regular customer Mowing client, Wanted some seed pods and the odd palm that was fallen removed from property, as i was already there, had a quick look, threw a fast price out , yeah $40, took me less than 20minutes, then i looked back at my truck, i had the tray loaded full of palms and seed pods from these palms, $20 to dump plus my time, what was i thinking!

    Keep the Great content up,

  27. Dyl on August 6, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Thanks for all the info but too many air quotes lol

  28. Mark Willoughby on August 6, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    What’s the name of the fabric you use

  29. Tyler Kreutzer on August 6, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    This is exactly what I needed to hear. Just expanded my landscaping company this year and needed to realize, once again, I need to stick to my guns in order to make the profit. Especially if I’m going to expand. Thank Keith!

  30. Davididit on August 6, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Turned it off after the 26th air quote

  31. losttheplot26 on August 6, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    You create so much extra bother for your self Kalfas.

  32. Richi Balero on August 6, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Hoooooo my knee!!!!😂😂 Mom?……..my knee!!!😂😂😂😂

  33. DK Smith on August 6, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Gread advice!

  34. Pamtastic 72 on August 6, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    The constant air quotes lost me, didn’t even make it 5 minutes.

  35. Richard Laporte on August 6, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    How to not go through sprinkler pipe with landscape pins

  36. Ethan Collier on August 6, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    would be nice to like, you know, see you do it…

  37. Danny Firestine on August 6, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Dammit Keith you left the water running! You’re wasting water like it just falls from the sky or something!

  38. Scott Kain on August 6, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    what kind of fabric do you recommend? Dewitt Pro maybe? 3oz or 5oz? What about for use under pebble pathways? Thanks

  39. MR. Green Thumb Lawn Response on August 6, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Thanks for making this keith’ my question is, how do you measure how much fabric you need?

  40. Escape Traveler on August 6, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Is it ok to use 2 layers instead of 1? On the edges, do you leave 1 inches to tug in or do you actually leave 1 inches flipping up and cover with mulch.

  41. Berry Bowlls on August 6, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    This guy sounds like a ripoff artist trying to justify why he’s charging extra. Loser

  42. Amy Baby on August 6, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    This was such a strange video

  43. CreatingMind on August 6, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    So glad you pointed out the beveled edge I see this neglected all the time.
    Quick question though, why didn’t you just take that extra dirt and rake it out level in between the beveled edge and the house? Dumping dirt always last resort.

  44. Gary Eisele on August 6, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Great Word!

  45. DK RoLLa67 TV on August 6, 2021 at 10:17 pm

  47. Gamer Clownz on August 6, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Do I need pins if I am using river rock on top of the fabric?

  48. Jessica Collins on August 6, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    I’m just trying to create a barrier on existing roses and lilies!

  49. Richard Laporte on August 6, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Keith, thanks for the honest assessment! You rock

  50. Ryan Sebrasky on August 6, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Weed barrier fabric is BS in mulched beds. Your mulch eventually turns into dirt where weeds will take hold and you’ll eventually need spray to deal with them. 3 years, 5 years whatever. It’s a used car salesman level upsell. You want new plants you have dig through it. You want a new design now you to rip it all out. Even in rock beds fallen debris eventually breaks down in the spaces providing a weed seed the soil it needs to take hold.
