Instant Success With Your Yard!
If you’re wanting green lawns overnight then laying fresh cut sod is the way to go. You will have a lush carpet-like yard within several weeks, with the exception of a few dormant months in winter. However, in our climate, laying sod in the dormant months is fine. The root system is still growing and your grass will certainly take off with the arrival of spring.
Site Conditions Dictate Sod Choice!
Homeowners can choose whatever grass they prefer for their lawns depending upon your site’s conditions. For a deep-dark green lawn St. Augustine is the best pick. However, be ready to cut grass, because it has one of the fastest growth rates. For a light green colored lawn Centipede or Bermuda would be good choices. Keep in mind that site conditions are a deciding factor in which variety of sod to use.

PATIO IDEAS Natural Looking Flagstone!
Flagstone is one of the best materials to use for a patio. Flagstione patios are a popular choice because it’s natural appeal and earthy shades of blues, browns, reds and greys. This stone creates a slip-resistant surface and is durable so cracking is unlikely to occur. You can produce a formal or informal look by the way it’s laid. For a formal style pieces are cut and laid in various pattern. For an informal appearance miscellaneous pieces are laid close together. This is sometimes called crazy paving. The joints can be poured solid with mortar or filled with gravel, mulch or ground covers can planted to fill in. Another added plus with these patios is that they are permeate if joints aren’t filled with cement.
Interlocking Paver Patios!
Pavers allow for four times the load bearing weight of concrete slabs. Pavers not only allow for heavier loads than concerte slabs, they last longer. Cracking issues that exist with concrete slabs are not a concern with interlocking paver systems. If for some reason your paver patio or walkway becomes damaged or stained, you simply replace those pieces. Another plus is being able to keep your pavers looking new with a sealer product.
