    Here is a few of the landscaping we did on the blue modern house. he has 3 bull dogs that poop and tear up the lawn in the back yard so i re-graded the lawn. re-figured the back sprinkler system, and put some small scale bushes in for the time being. then installed sod and mulch and aluminum bed edging. some simple work for a long day.

    sewer damage sod job we did at the same time as the blue house. Two doors down. here are some before and after. And i want to hear your opinions on how the sod was dropped off. It was thrown off the dump truck 6-8 feet of the ground into a big ugly pile. I thought it looks so unprofessional. I ordered 190 yards of sod too. I thought it would be delievered with a spyder fork lift or something.

    I would be talking to the grower about how they dropped your sod so hard. It will probably not be catastrophic damage, but, i bet it stunts the healing in time. The more damage and abuse to the root system the longer time it takes to establish.
