Laying sod is not for the faint of heart. It is hard strenuous work. If you have ever driven by a house that is barren of any grass one day and has a lush green lawn the next day… its sod.

If you plan to sod your yard yourself, plan on several weekends and be prepared to rent some equipment unless you already have it. You will need rakes, shovels, a wheel barrow, some very sharp knives and some knee pads.

A proper sod bed should be rototilled, graded and raked smooth of any debris and rocks, before you lay the sod. The seams must be pulled closely together to prevent gaps, use the knives the sod around walks, planters, and other objects in your yard.

Your new sod will require a lot of water and should be on a regular watering schedule and watered several times a day for the first week then gradually reduce your water as the sod begins to grow in. Or you can call us… we have sod specials running till the middle of June. http://ow.ly/i/uZjXK http://ow.ly/i/uZjYo http://ow.ly/i/uZk2q

Rain Gardens are a great way to manage excess ground water when you have drainage problems in your landscape. A rain garden is an attractive garden that absorbs the rainwater running off your roof, driveway or other hard surfaces on your property. Rain gardens reduce the amount of storm water entering our lakes, rivers and streams .

A properly built simple rain garden will act as a filtration system that keeps things like fertilizers, petroleum products, pet waste and other toxins out of our streams and rivers. Many people do not realize that the water from storm water systems are not cleaned and what goes into the storm drain winds up in our creeks and rivers, polluting our waterways and reducing the water life and health of our streams.

If we all work together, we can improve our water quality and make a difference now and for the future.

Wide Open Spaces… sun tolerant trees.
I’ve been working on a landscape plan for one of our customers who has built a beautiful home on top of a hill with no trees. This house faces northeast which leaves the back and side open to the southwest, one of the most difficult areas to landscape.

Shade is critical in a space like this so finding good small trees that can be planted close to the house to help cool the porch and patio can be challenging. Two that can survive full evening sun and summer heat are Crab Apple and Crape Myrtle, Just make sure they have plenty of water.

A healthy LAWN is very important to the environment. Did you know that your lawns can reduce energy consumption in your home through its cooling effects. And that just 2,500 square feet of lawn not only absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, but it also releases enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe.
