Now they say it's better then great stuff cause it has no chemicals in it all bio safe

Let me know what you guys think and if this is a good item to use other then great stuff
So I look at their website the stuff you got is the same as greatstuff. The Touch ‘n Foam LandScape is fish and pond safe. I think I may pick some landscape on payday.

I am so upset right now

It seems this project was a fail from the start and out of sheer of bad luck I know this is so true

Today I go to check on the progress of my BG only to find out my materials and tools
Got thrown out

The storage where it's being kept in
I guess went thru a monthly cleaning
And me not knowing was a dumb one
And kept it outside

Now I am not sure if I can tell the porters to look into this but this is pretty upsetting

The cement is cured on my BG
But without the tools and materials
I can't continue

Sorry guys
