looks great.........how did the sod hold up during all that heat?....just curious since my neighbor had his yard done during the heatwave and initially it looked beautiful........he watered like told and now it is completely brown 2 wks later......the contractor told him it went dormant because of heat and that it will come back...........

Landscape rocks and boulders make a big difference.Recently I met an excavator who digs them up right from the ground and sells them to me at a decent price.The only thing is some of them are pretty big and without a machine to move them it takes a couple of guys to get them on the trailer.I don't do a lot of installs but I have more then doubled my money and have some left over still.Once I get rid of the ones I have I will be getting more,its just a matter of getting the average person to pay for a rock.

Thankyou. We were thinking about selling them. But then we sat back and thought about it, and it would of been too much of a hassle. We accually dug up a rock about 10 ft tall. We ended up moving it and burying it as much as we could. That is why there is a small bed in the middle of the yard.

It was fine the day of the install. and we watered all day. Then we set the clock on the sprinkler box and left. I dont have a clue what it looks like now, Im at my condo in Palm Beach Shores Florida, enjoying my vacation.

You did a great job.If I was redoing my yard and dug up all of those rocks I would use them on my own property also.

Yea, we have a wall just like that with big boulders and such along the driveway. So now it continues all the way into the back, which is great!
