    What? No stripes?? Haha, looks good.... I personally would have tried to incorporate a bed along that massive wall to try and scale it down, I can see you have a bed in at the one side but a little more wouldn't hurt.

    And why the steep slope at the walkway area?? Its not like he has to get a mover up there, haha. Why not just do steps??

    The client has been dealing with soggy, wet, muddy heavy clay soil (grass not growing well, plants dying, etc.) in a fairly shady back yard for years and is sick of it. They really aren't good at maintenance of any sort and don't really have any desire to maintain plants or lawn. So that's why no planting bed there by the rock wall.

    As for the ramp, that was already there. And they just wanted it to be turf. I did actually suggest that. But they have young kids. I think nice soft turf is more appealing to them than hard concrete or rock steps that little toddlers would easily get injured on. Plus, this stuff is hella expensive. So they pretty much blew their whole budget on just the turf.

    The one large area that isn't turf is going to be raised garden boxes that will just be used in the summer. Otherwise, that would have been turf too.

    Haha. Funny guy. This wasn't put-put mini golf. But you could almost put on this turf. Almost short enough....but not quite.
