landscaping costs settlement for sanxiang four season blossom was a challenging task, as the site was divided into plot a, b, c,d, a commercial zone, a landscaped area in the center, and temporary green spaces. the variety of seedlings planted, the long project duration and the number of unsettled issues meant numerous disputes and barriers to progress.

however, mr. xu wei and his team were undaunted. they counted and checked all seedlings on site, measuring the diameter at breast height, ground diameter, canopy diameter and height of each tree. they also marked each tree on the drawings, and compiled and analysed data. the site work, started in the early spring freeze, uninterrupted by the scorching summer heat, was carried through into the wintery gale. during these 9 months, 3891 trees (46 species), 15624 shrubs (64 species) and 43847 sq.m of ground covers (51 species) were measured to provide basis for price verification.
