    Here are a few photos snagged of our year-long Inspiration project. We just wrapped up the initial contract, and have moved onto a 2nd contract with 400+ trees in the parkways of the homes, along with paver bands set into the sidewalks every 10'.

    Here is a shot of the main entry as the plantings begin to mature (ignore the coloration of the turf, we just overseeded with rye grass and it hasnt fully grown in yet), one of the larger intersections w/ abutments in the community, and one of the HOA pools we landscaped as well. We move on to Phase 2 middle of Jan 16.

    Couple misc photos here.

    Purchased a mini-skidsteer the other month and this thing has been a great help for smaller materials. We can easily lift 4" caliper trees on this with enough counter weights on the back. We bought this for the trencher attachment ability, but also use a smooth bucket and forks as well. It lifts a full pallet of mulch too (4.5CY).

    Our Inspiration project asked us a few days ago to source a Christmas Tree type evergreen so they could have a "lighting ceremony". We selected a 12,000 LB Brodie Juniper, and had it installed the following day. Looks great!

    Photo I shot the other day of our flagship maintenance property Hebron 121 Station apartments in Lewisville, Texas. We maintain Phases 1 & 2, and start construction on Phase 3 sometime second quarter of 2016.

    Enjoy.

    Neat project we are currently working on out in East Texas.


    The 3 bay garage on the right side of the photo, along with the smaller house just past the bridge are the new additions to the property. This site is home to a 2,000 private hunting ranch.

    Few pics from a project we from a project we finished last fall. Here is a CorTen firepit that we installed, water feature we designed & fabricated, and 3 sets of hammocks. We fabricated the hammock frames with 4" square tubing, and they are set into the ground 30" with concrete. These snapshots were a part of the larger project, which was a complete rip out of all concrete & plantings, installation of new concrete walks, plantings, fire pit, fountain, bocce ball court, dog park, etc... Really excited with the way this design/build project turned out. Our team self-performed 100% of the work on this project, which really goes to show how skilled our construction guys are.
    We've been involved with alot of these "boutique" type design build projects, where we end up being the GC on them, and self-performing the majority or all of the work. When we self-perform 100% of the work, we have found that we can keep to schedules a little better and accelerate jobs faster than relying on subs. Even though the subs we use are great, there is nothing like a foreman that can oversee 100% of the work on jobs like this and perform it all!

    Work looks great. We gave up on subs a long time ago. Nothing better then having all the work done in house. The only thing we get help for is concrete finishers and truckers, thats it. We noticed that the quality of our work went way up when we starting doing things ourselves.
    keep up the good work!

    Snapshots of a youth soccer field from a park @ one of our developments. We have 6 parks in this community that total about $750,000. Should keep a crew busy out here for the next few months.

    This field had over 300 yards of sand incorporated into the soil at a depth of 6 inches to help provide better drainage, and allow entry onto the field quicker after a rain event.

    We had to correct the initial grade on this site and removed about 3,000 yards of excess soil. Thus, the explanation for the bench being too far above grade on the left of one of the photos. We had to remove that bench, and reset it once grading once finalized.

    Two crews are out there laying sod now. They laid 54 pallets over the past 2 days, and will lay another 36 pallets today. They will finish on Tuesday with the final 36 pallets of sod.

    Wouldn't rolls of sod be faster? Or are you using Zoysia?
