Tiny Job

This job is from a long while ago. I probably was a one man show when I did this job.

Round Rock Job

This house had no irrigation. We don't do many jobs where they are willing to spend thousands on the landscaping but nothing on irrigation.

My First Big Job

This was my first big job and it was just a few miles from my house & shop. This customer spent $65K and then another $25K over the next few years. Now the drought has beaten the crap out of the yard. The economy pretty much sapped the customers cash flow.

The lawn was about 25K square feet. We had about 600 feet of mortared stone borders, 1200 feet of loose borders, lots of plants and lighting. I'd much rather do smaller jobs.

Good Pool Job

I like doing jobs like this. Done in a day, make a few grand and everyone is happy.

Neighbor Job

I did this little job for a neighbor down the street who's home was for sale. The house was for sale with no offers for six weeks. The back had some work done as well. The house sold not long after we did the work.

Another Big Job

We used rolls of Zoysia on this job. Rolls beat squares hands down. This was a nice job with lots of big tree's, plants, lights, and borders. This job was about $65K. A flood washed out the area along the street twice after we finished the job.

The customer sold the house about two years later. He makes about $400 an hour so I guess it wasn't that big of a deal to write off $50K.

Little $1500 Job

Even little jobs cam make a decent impact. The driveway had killed a large Live Oak that had been the the center of the driveway.

Modest Make Over

This was a modest make over but it made a decent impact.
