CTS Lawn & Landscape pic thread

snooped around long enough looking and reading everyone else's pic threads and figured I make myself known too! lol And since it's winter time and STILL NO SNOW, have the down time now to start uploading these from throughout the year and years past.

Bio: Worked for a local Landscaping co. throughout high school and part of college before parting ways and starting up my own business in the middle of college. Graduated in Landscape Horticulture at Cincinnati State, and loved every minute. I normally hate school, but took to this program really well and it definitely makes customers feel better knowing that you studied in this field. Business will be going on its 11th year this spring! It's just me mostly with some friends and cousins helping me in the summer here and there that need the extra money. I have on average 50-60 regular mowing accounts, a bunch of re-mulching and trimming jobs, and lately the hardscapes and landscape installs/ renovations have been picking up lately.

Hope you like what you see and will try and keep photos updated as the years go on!

Small paver patio is at my place with most of the leftovers from past projects.

Ram is the new addition last year for plowing and transporting the new addition to the family this October, Black Ram is just a 2 door.

Some mowing shots, don't have too many pictures of those and the equipment but will try to get a bunch this season for you all to see.

Our backyard, was nothing but weeds and ankle twisters when mowing. Killed yard out and renovating it back to health. Horrible landscaping when I moved in and still in progress, but getting there for when we try to resell

Thanks! Hard work definitely pays off.

I'm going to try and get on that for everyone. Right now they are all in the storage units, So I'll have to head over there and take some pics.

Did you put the edge restraint in to retain the bedding sand?

Whats with the natural stone caps on the precast walls?

Are you using epoxy or mortar to attach stone to steps?

Layout and Designs look pretty good, Few details need to be cleaned up but looks good so far.

1. Edging restraint always has the 1" sand held back with 1/4-1/2" of bottom of pavers bumping into it after final compaction, with the soil/ mulch packing in the rest of the paver block. I can't stand the guys that put edge restraint on top of sand only holding pavers back... eventually the blocks settle and then the black edging starts to show and rise up over blocks.

2. The stone caps are actually concrete caps made by Reading Rock here in Cincy. It's want customer wanted and looks better than seeing the blocks underneath with the joints showing. IMO

3. Epoxy Adhesive. With the changing weather here its stronger and flexes with the temperature changes unlike mortar, would just crack and break down after time.
