This has been a year full of really cool landscaping projects! I’ve had a lot of excellent opportunities to expand my skill base and have worked really hard to make some yards stand out, look beautiful, and function properly
Getting into Fencing and Carpentry
These last three years I’ve done a lot of work. Recently I’ve gotten into something that I did not foresee; carpentry! Now I’ve done over a dozen fences and gates and am looking for more big projects to take on.
I was also able to build some steps and a landing for a client in Newcastle… I think it came out really nice! The before and after pictures are further down below.
Installing Artificial Grass
I’ve also gotten a chance to hone in my turf skills and work with some high quality fake grass. It’s a lot of work! The grading took several days and included road base, 3/4 crushed rock, decomposed granite, and sand. I also built the smaller fence to hide the pool equipment horizontally according to the customers specification.
Full Yard Installs
This year I’ve done a couple of full year installs, but also got to do a lot of repairs. Its definitely easier to start a yard from scratch! Usually I try to make everything as accessible as possible for repairs, because I am usually the person that repairs things, especially outdoor irrigation and drainage.

Newcastle Back Yard Full Install
My biggest project this year was the back yard revitalization in Newcastle. Check out some before and after pics!
Lots of work for a smaller sized yard! This project will be continuing to develop over time and I will be maintaining it.
I’ve also finished some smaller yards, and some major repair work!
From a smaller back yard in Rocklin. I repaired the water feature and installed lots of new plants!
I was also able to save some clients money on their irrigation systems and fencing repairs! What a year of fun projects!
