Landscape/Hardscape - Front - Complete!
The front is complete! (except for the end of the walkway which will meet the driveway, which will be complete next week)
It's dusk so the photos aren't lit properly but it gives a good idea.
They used a nice, rich dark brown mulch that has plant food in it and the rocks are river rock.
I can't remember the names of all the plants, shrubs and trees......... but all are drought and deer resistant. We have a ton of deer around here and it's sad to see people put in brand new landscaping just to have it be deer food!!
At the top of the walkway they made a very nice circle. I love it! It adds a nice touch to the walkway.
They started on the back today. All they did was the girl's playground area. They edged around it and dug out the sod and put down a landscaping tarp. They filled the area with a rubber synthetic 'mulch'. It's soft and when/if the kids fall off the slide or swings, they land on a sort of rubbery cushion. I didn't take pictures of the back yet. I will tomorrow before they start construction on the back patio/walkway and landscaping! I can't WAIT to have a patio out back!!
