(North County SD)
ICINC was contracted to implement a simple, but effective front yard landscaping face lift in San Marcos, CA. We debated with the home owner between water conscious succulents/desert landscaping and simple grass sod. After deciding that sod was the way to go we got right to work stripping the dead grass and digging the trenches for the sprinkler system. The real challenge here was cutting through (some) of the roots that were in the ground to make way for the sprinkler system. We designed the system to have 100% coverage which is why the grass continued to grow so well year after year.
As you can see we also added a very nice planter around the main tree and made sure to surround the trunk with a vinyl liner as to not affect the tree in any way. Furthermore, we re-built the fence on this side of the house and added a small planter underneath the window. It came out great and the photos speak for themselves!
