Pool Job

The Texas drought has made landscape jobs harder to come by. The before pic was from June when we had a little rain and the after pic is from about two weeks ago. The summer and once a week watering restrictions starting on 9/6 have taken a toll on lawns.

The pool project was really elongated so I really couldn't get a decent set of pics. This was the second best job of the year and the only pool project of the year. We are going to be up shick creek big time if we stay dry through next year.

This was our hottest and driest year since records have been kept in mid 1800's. Our rain total is about 9" for the year and we've been over 100 F 90 times. We seem to be turning into Phoenix AZ. We got as hot as 112 F this summer. Tree's are dying by the millions and we're not going to have much left if next summer is a repeat of the one we just had. The last rainfall we had that you could actually measure was back in late June.

Past Jobs

I thought I would post pics of some of our past jobs. This was a small job but it produced results both home owners on both sides really liked.

Modest Front Yard Improvement

This job was done quite a while back. It was a simple job but it looks way better then the crap the builder had put in. Once the plants matured it looked really full.

Nice 10K Job

I got this job from advertising in a Keller Williams Realty magazine. The house had a driveway from hell. We rented a concrete hauling buggy and a Dingo for loading the soil so we could get it up the driveway and into the backyard.

$17K job

I loved this job. We built a block wall and stuccoed it, and added a cap to conceal some pool equipment. We built a seating wall, added to the patio, built a retaining wall all the way around the pool, stone borders, cool plants, and great lighting. I really miss the days when work came faster then we could keep up. I used to have a waiting list ten deep of people wanting us to do their landscaping.
