6/1/08 on The Garden Police: "Grass Is Not Enough"



(The brick planter was removed to make access for the new patio from the entry.)

Recycled brick is used as edging.

Garden Police Solution:
The new design called for the creation of a tea patio and English gardens, so one of the first things we had to do was completely remove all the grass, weeds and all. We gave the couple a lesson in rototilling to facilitate the removal of the lawn. We weren't worried about the lawn growing back because it was DEAD! We added new rich, amended soil from the American Soil Company and installed a new Rain Bird sprinkler system. Our green team helped demolish a brick planter near the front door so that we could create a grand entry to the new patio which was done carefully to recycle the bricks for later use.
