The Osami Maple in the front turns 5 different colors in fall. Can't wait for it to grow and show. A type of Jap Maple.

That is quite the undertaking there, job done well my friend. Some serious man hrs I'm shure. Now you can add pond cleaning to your list of thinks to do. I had one get away from me with to much algae not fun.

Irrigation got pushed back to tuesday because of down machines. Oh well, we'll get that, then probably the sod thursday and have everything ready to enjoy for the weekend. Dont know if you guys have ever seen that tree, but like prez said, its an oisami maple. Here's a picture of what it will look like come fall time.........

Hahaha yeah I hope I can get going quick. Its the start-up that's really killing me (equipment cost, time & money management, finding employees, etc). Everyday is a learning experience.

Finished pics. This is RTF Tall Fescue. A farm in NC started this with Rhizomes so we gave it a try. It is the only fescue sod that will fill itself in and get thicker and thicker. You can find the info on this sod @ Slaterturf.com

Great work! Only one suggestion though... Next time have Prez wear pants, a long sleeve shirt, safety glasses/goggles, and rubber boots when spraying. Even if there isn't any '-cides' in the mix IMO. You don't want him dieing on you before all his good work is utilized. :)

I lost 2 fish this week and wondered if this could be the culprit? Got him a friend. His friend will be fun at the pool also:laugh:

No. That's a sharp-shinned hawk, they don't eat fish. Mainly small birds, lizzards, and small snakes.

Your koi look to be a good size, it would take a blue heron or raccoon to get them.

it wasn't too terribly bad, but we took the extra time to actually situate each rock where you can stand on pretty any rock around the edge, and it wont budge. That was the tough part.

Very nice man, Approx. how much did that job cost YOU? I love doing jobs like that but the hardest thing for me is putting the idea on paper and selling it. How do you do that part of it?
