This dog-loving family's lawn was suffering from severe compaction and landscape tedium. Green Jay Landscaping installed Microclover Black Beauty Sod from Sodco - a durable and attractive new sod that fixes nitrogen and reduces water and fertilizer inputs. Green Jay Landscaping also softened the existing retaining wall with flowering perennials above and below for vibrant blooms from spring through fall. A proper cedar base for the playset and a boulder-retained vegetable garden complete this family backyard haven. Redefining beds in the front foundation allowed for a more colorful and pollinator-attracting plant palette.
