    Looks real good. Good job, but I hope those candy canes are for Christmas decor.

    Used a bobcat to do the boulders and a skidster for the rock. Sorry if the pics are not to good, just learned how to size them and am still figuring it out.

    Tough too see any detail with those pics, but looking at the "BIG" picture, looks nice. The bed lines look nice, although I'm not a big fan of anything other than natural edging.

    I like it. Simple and clean. Did you do the curbing along the bed edges too?

    That looks pretty darn good. Do you have any before pictures? How did you do the bed edges? How long did the whole job take?

    This was done on my own house and I did it on my spare time. We cleared it out in mid Sept and finished a couple weeks ago. For the before pics, don't have any, but just picture it with nothing there, just blow sand. The front yard sat barren for at least a month. Another contractor did the concrete edging and I did everything else. Now I must start on the back and I will have befores and afters for ya. But knowing me, it will take all next year to get complete.
