    Im sure there has been worse, but I found this while browsing about the internet.


    How could you even think of taking a picture of that and posting it for the world to see?

    although I think their focus was the rock water fountain, it is pretty bad...

    Definetly the fountain was the focus, but they did all the work, so that would look pretty bad for them.

    Looks like Bermuda sod, freshly laid. Its not all that bad, I am sure it will look great once watered for a few weeks and fertilized.

    You don't think the way they laid the sod around the edging is horrible? There is one section where the sod is laying on top of the edging. Always run a strip to follow the curve then cut in with that. That way there is a nice crisp edge that follows the contour of the bed.

    Kinda looks like he picked up every rock on a parking lot meant to keep people from drivin' in the grass, and stacked them on top of a holey garden hose!;) ;)

    I swear it looked better when I was there in person.....Just kidding. Even if I did do that, I dont think I would own up to it:hammerhead:

    the retaining wall is nice in the background.
    the rock edging sucks.
    the waterfall is hideous.
    the waterfall pump is substantially undersized.
    the lawn is a pretty brownish green.

    i would be pretty embarrassed if this was mine.
