    we had a bit of work ahead of us laying runners 6 inches spacing over about 950 sqm, it took four of us 2 1/2 days to complete.

    These guys are mates & the far one is my son Ricky 14 y.old- he wont mow, but love landscaping.

    This is the same job today, the lawn took great.

    All done during a drought to!

    I have had this job since 2000, the garden has come a long way since the old landscapers job in 1999.

    The water restriction are now off, so lawns can be mowed.

    Buffalo grass is like bermuda, it repairs itself. But unlike bermuda is has a blade similar to fescue. The best part is you have the choice of watering it, no water completely yellow, water it green, but even without water you don't have to worry about it dying out. Lot of places use it in southwest kansas, even some golf courses.

    I have had this client a while, but only to mow. I just offered to change some things "Please". Now the ball is rolling.

    Today was just a small renovation job.

    All done. Now if you ask about the ugly left plant at the stairs, the owner wishes to keep them- but after arriving home today, I now have the okay to replace them.
