    Here's a recent redo for you. Good customers of mine that I know. They bought the house this winter and you can see how nice and 'mulchy' the backyard is....not very user friendly.

    Some tear down going on and the Bobcat earning its keep! Wheeled machine would not have worked. I don't know why pictures never do a slope justice but the driveway is a good 3' grade difference and in just pure mud. Look at that, sod to the site! Not having to wheel it around through the mud etc :clapping:

    We were laying sod right behind the irrigation sub......went smoothly and saves time from having to hand water or move sprinklers and crap around.

    So you can see the bulk of what was done. The Liriope, Nandina 'Heavenly Bamboo', and Hosta were all transplants. The yellow is the fall foliage of some flaming ORANGE twig Dogwoods and Mountain Laurel in front of them. There are two Redbuds stuck in there along with Winter Jasmin along the top of the boulders. Nandina is massed beside the steps and also 4 tons of stone under the deck. This is a very simple landscape, functional, year round interest and a nice back yard. Desire was for a lot of usable space and more plantings will take place in the future following the same 'native' look we have going on.

    The canopy of the trees is about 80' up and I am encouraging them to do landscape lighting. Uplighting + Moonlighting would look awsome!

    I'll get better pictures later, these were in a rush at dark after meeting/selling the neighbor :)

    Blue and the Bobcat both will sleep good tonight.....you can see the road that developed from hauling dirt to another area on the property about 1/4 mile.

    Actually my sister's house......back corner. Marine clay and water issue to add to it. Like the neighbors dead pine? I was experimenting with perennials btu the deer ate them, even the ones they weren't supposed to.

    And how to hide an AC unit :)

    And some 'bushes'.
