The Landscaping Begins

The Granite Arrives, originally uploaded by johntynan.

I’m a little late about blogging about this, but the landscapers were by the house all last week.

They sliced off about four or five inches of topsoil and grass and hauled it away. After laying some tubing down for the new drip irrigation system, they brought a mountain of crushed gravel by and started to spread it around.

We had to cut back on costs so the flower garden, vine and trellis by the front door will have to wait. We also had to wait on the flagstone walkway.

Instead of putting in brittle bush, we opted on desert marigolds which Rene likes. The desert grass at the nursery wasn’t looking so good so we decided not put them in just yet.
