After having our old deck demolished, my wife and I installed a 10X10 pavestone patio in our backyard in 4 weeks, for under $2,000. It was hard work and fun at the same time. Your video served as our inspiration. Thanks! https://youtu.be/H7LEITTd0xA

Really not worth putting down ' sod ' ( called turf in UK !) in an area this size. I would of chosen artificial grass ! You can get some great stuff these days! A bit expensive I know , but then again you do not have to buy a mower and spend time mowing ! More time to chill with a glass or two 🍷😉🍷😘🇬🇧

what awkward pacing
Rosa Pal (6 months ago)
OMG, he distroyed their little garden and put some gravel and hurt the Earth... and how long are thy going to sit there in that sitting area? If they had a little garden they could work together as a family, enjoy their time together, watch the plants and flowers grow, admire them, and use the produce as a natural food source... instead, they got a sitting area! I would not let this guy even close to my yard!

In California central valley fruit basket of the world we have been in a servicer drought for over six years with no mountain snow fall in Yosemite national park. The homeowners and renters are taking out the grass and planting Bush, enrichment grass, Shrubs and trees.

The Japanese maple leaf is so colorful and the shape is basically enrichment for your garden.

I didnt like the transformation that much, it was much improved from what it was but nothing special. What I liked was how he made the owners do most of the work, that way they will appreciate it much more.

I have a question: How much should you be charged monthly if you have rocks, for your yard to be taken care of a month? Nothing but dirt in the back yard.

#ghostlyswimify I would not have put sod in. why worry about cutting that little patch? A ground cover a pond or a fire pit would have been better also, a small tree like a magnolia or even a trumpet vine would have worked better in the corner @Natural Ponds Lakes & Streams by Spring Creek Aquatic Concepts

A fire pit is what I was thinking too.
