The water level you see now is the full level. I forget how many acres it is, but my pics do not do it justice. They also had a peninsula built with sand on one side for swimming.

I guess about the only good thing about this drought is that now I am getting to replace dead plants.

Yep we are in same situation. My son is working with some new software packages so you can go from a picture of the home into a landscape plan. Next year will be converting lawns to zeroscape in our area. And there will be irrigation retro work.

After they showed me this I can do it pretty easy now [well for me anyway].
I've been a before and after picture fanatic for years. The before picture can sell a job just as much as the after picture. I have some of my pictures on the Picture thread but it's slipped back a few pages. My pictures are also at www.plantscapesolutions.net. I'd like to have a more custom website but this one fits in the budget for now.

I also have at least a 100 pictures of planting material that I've taken but I need more.

when it says that to me i've noticed that the pics i'm uploading are to big. i usually have to open them in paint and then save them so it changes the format and makes the file size smaller(not the pic) and i am able to up load the pics. maybe i dont know what i'm talking about but it always works when i do it that way. hope that helps

Just wondering how some of you Texas and Oklahoma's guys lawns are coming along this year after the bad drought? I have been pleasantly surprised on how mine are bouncing back this year. These still have a long way to go to get back looking like they did, but they are on their way.
