latest landscape job

Here is a few pics of a job we just finished up. Fully irigated the yard, put down 12 pallets of sod and added the beds. We also took out the old walk for a redesign and added a patio to the rear of the property.

Looks good, but one thing, be sure to stagger the sod

x2!!! F@cked it up for sure...
Also, with the pinestraw, I know its a down south thing, but doesn't it absolutely suck to go anywhere near it with a blower and the straw instantly gets blown? I hate mulch for that reason.

I agree. The sod job wont look/grow right unless you stagger the joints.

We have around four days work in this one including the concrete.

The sod comes from a good company down here and it has a good mat and is always healthy. We have never had a problem with it not growing or looking bad no matter how it is put down. More times than not we do stagger the joints but in this case the hired hands were laying it while the boss man and I were plumbing and they were about three pallets in when we got back around to them so we let this one slide.

The straw can be a pain for sure but it was what the customer requested so it's what she got. I prefer lava rocks myself but most people don't care to pay the price for it.

Keep a eye out for drying edges, erosion and sod drift where the sod is not staggered, going forward supervise closely all crews on key aspects of landscape installs especially primary ones like sod installs.
