Eagle Landscape

Ok guys, I've decided to start my thread for all of the projects we do.

I'll start with pictures for the house I'm building for my fiance and myself. I went out today to put up root protection zone fencing around the trees I wanted to keep. The demo company is coming on Monday to tear out this old slab, so they can start forming the new one.

Had a flier distribution company out put out 30k two weeks ago or so.

House burned down about 5 years ago. Some guy bought it two years later, but could never float the interim construction interest, so he was about to foreclosed on.

Took me about 7-8 months, but convinced the bank to do a shortsale on the property for about 1/3 of what the going cost of land is out there.

I could sell the lot and make 6 figures profit, but decided to build instead. Super awesome neighborhood and location to build a big shop on the back of the property.

My backyard is like 600-800 acres of corn. I can do whatever I want out here

In the process of building a home right now. The current site has an existing slab to a house that burned down approx 5 years ago. We're getting that pulled up tomorrow, and should begin forming shortly thereafter.

Started, and finished my first wall (I did another one a few years back, but choose to forget about it). So I consider this my first one really.
Belgard Celtik Wall block.
We had the driveway done a few weeks ago, and it finally dried out enough to do the wall.
