Want some opinions on the plans I have. Just finished installing my irrigation system and buried my trenches. I have clay like soil and my plan is to lay down sod. Area is roughly about 45x25. Leveled the clay as best as I could but I’d like to grade it away from the patio/house. Plan is to order about 3cu yards of compost and tilling it in and then setting the grade. Or should I set the grade with the compost without tilling? If I do decide on tilling I may need to adjust the sprinklers head higher. They’re currently sitting an inch above the current grade now. submitted by /u/Main_Grocery_ ..read more

A roughly 14 foot maintenance bay overlooks my back yard. I’m looking at either bamboo or something else to cover it up but not sure what would be the best fit and not sure if bamboo is worth the risk? submitted by /u/CriticalMembership31 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

What plants do you recommend for this Pacific Northwest terrace? Zone 8b

Our backyard is terraced and we want to plant native species that will do well with limited sun (our house shades the backyard in the afternoons, and only the top level of the terrace gets much sun. We also won’t have irrigation in place so we need to manually water whatever we plant. Currently there are 10 hydrangea plants on the bottom level in 3 different colors. (I think we will move some of these up to the second level to create more variety rather than have a uniform one plant type on each level). The very top terrace has very little soil and is very rocky, not much depth to the bac ..read more

Zone 6B (10506) Looking for woods ground cover from recently removed invasive plants

Hi all- I had my buddy come through my woods and remove the invasive ground cover with his tractor. Right now, I'm down to dirt in parts of the woods and would like to plant a ground cover to help keep the invasive plants at bay and protect the soil from washing away. Looking for recommendations in Zone 6B. As it's woods and shaded, looking for something that can do well in that situation on the side of a hill down to a creek. Was looking for a recommendation of a tall grass or something that would not have to be maintained and look nice. Thanks! submitted by /u/therealschwartz [visit reddit ..read more

Pruning/shaping an arborvitae

I love this bush which actually now looks more like a tree haha, any ideas on how to shape it? Can I turn it into one of those lollipop looking bushes? Or just leave it gumdrop shape? Since it doesn't have branches at its base it would be difficult to keep its original shape. Thanks! submitted by /u/ApartAd6969 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Backyard is overrun with weeds. Best course of action? Due to neglect my backyard has become overgrown with weeds (Rush) and what I believe are poplar sprouts all over. I want to make this into a beautiful greenspace.

How to properly store pallets of pavers

We're in the process of building a fairly big (1500sqft) paver patio, and are getting the pavers delivered next week. Since we are not ready to immediately start the installation process (could take up to 2 or 3 months), I was wondering, what is a smart way of storing these pallets? Are there any foreseeable problems with storing them on the lawn? We are going to regrade, resow, afterwards, but maybe there is something I am missing? We could also store about half of the pavers on our driveway, seeing as how each pallet prob weighs the amount of a car (they were unclear how many on a pallet ..read more
