Phased Residential Landscape (part 1 of 2)

October 10, 2016

Project Description:

Client had a large project for their newly purchased house in a new development, and split the job into two phases. Phasing a residential landscape project means breaking up the job into multiple parts installed at different times. This first phase included the majority of the earthwork, as well as installing a Hunter irrigation system for 100% lawn coverage. Included in installation was a backflow preventer and control clock.  Client requested installation of sod for an instant lush, green lawn; and landscaping consisting of plants, edging, river rock, a weed barrier, and red cedar mulch installed in all edged areas including the front yard.  Part of the plantings also included 20 gallon trees and shrubs complete with mulch around the base of each one when planted.
