    I also installed 2 yoshino cherries. Didn't put in the trees with the stone border, just installed the border and mulched. One tree that was already there is very crooked.

    This guy is actually selling his house and he wanted to have a flat spot in his back yard and have some color in the front of the house.

    I would say next time on a wall of that size that you might want to use some larger size retaining wall blocks, your work looks good though.

    It is a pretty crappy yard to begin with. Grass is horrible and it is solid red clay. What would you recomend go around the trees?

    Haven't posted any pics in a while. Been pretty busy. This is half way through of my second year.

    Bought a new 2012 turf tiger with a 35 vangaurd and they threw in a striping kit and a chute blocker and I paid 12k cash out the door.

    I love this machine. I almost went with a lazer to match my turf tracer walk behind. I demoed a s series lazer and it was the bumpiest ride I have ever had. Then I almost went with the cheetah but finally went with the tiger and I am more than pleased. Have about 100hrs on it now and loving it. That thing will climb staight up mountains and never bog down.

    Some stripes from my baby.
