re: Yard Drainage-Landscape Company Cost - MaxDraft
Pics would certainly help out to see what the issues are, but it could run anywhere from $2k - $8k to get it right. I say this from personal experience.

re: List of private companies that took PPP - MaxDraft
Given that you have zero idea what industry I'm in and the dynamics at play, it seems odd that you would feel qualified to even respond. My question was simply, "is there a list available?" Not, "how would you run my business?"...
