My place is a wreck right now. I hauled in 6 loads of dirt from my dad's jobsite. We are going to regrade and then spread loam, hydroseed, irrigation and some patios and walkways. Also new plantings and edging. Here's some pics from part of the backyard. Eventually it will be the highlight of the neighborhood and people will actually believe i know what i'm doing.

Talking Call the competition

My wife keeps threatening to call one of the larger LCO's in the area. I told her that I do the ones that pay first.
