We finished this landscaping project in April for a very happy customer in Bremerton. I have to admit I’m quite envious of this inviting campfire we constructed for him and his family, tucked away in the back woods of their property.
We worked this residential property from the back to the front. This is a before shot of the edge of the back yard.
Here’s the after shot. We installed gravel pathways so that this young family can safely take a leisurely stroll in their back yard, while feeling like they’re in the woods. This was an idea from the customer, which we always welcome, as customers know best how it is that they will use their spaces.
We tore up the old grass which was dead in some areas, patchy, and full of moss. The wooded area captured in the previous photos is just behind the skidsteer.
After all the old grass was removed, we installed an irrigation system to ensure a healthy, green lawn soon to come…
Raised beds were installed to provide structure around the future lawn, with placement rocks, bark, and plants such as salvia, spanish lavender, heather, lithodora, and irish moss.
You can consider the photo above with the skidsteer a before shot. Here is the after shot. The flagstone pathway in the upper right corner connects to a gravel pathway, which connects to the campfire. Also another idea from the customer.
We planted golden spirea, dwarf burning bush, japanese holly, ornamental grasses, irish moss, and woolly thyme to complement the existing, mature landscape.
Hydroseed is a higher quality product in comparison to sod. It roots properly as it grows, and you won’t see any lines or seams as you would with sod. Sod is best used during the winter months when hydroseed cannot be applied.
One of the last features of this landscape that we installed was an aggregate concrete driveway, added on as an extension of this customer’s existing driveway.
