This one is probably my favorite.Nothing special,but we had a fun time(which we do most of the time) installing.Lots of good natured pokin' with one another.I bet our customers think we're nuts to be having so much fun,working so hard.

Hi Nick,

Do you have more pictures of that install? It looks like you have a lot of potted plants going in the ground!

Is that a lake in the background? WOW What a view!

Yes,that is a lake(river) in the background.This install was for a long time customer.The previous homeowner had bermuda installed,which of course,didn't like all of the shade under those trees.So,we came up with a plan that includes Hosta,Red Ruffle Azaleas,Pleasant White Azaleas,some Nandina,little gem arbovitae,and v.liriope.
We also removed the sod at the "turn about" in the driveway and installed boxwoods and loropetelum to match their foundation landscaping.We simply reversed the orientation of the plants and put the loropetelum at the back,and the boxwoods in front.
This photo is about a week after install.The Red Ruffles are just about finished blooming.

How beautiful!

Did you design this on your computer too before the sale was made?
