Return to the Blogosphere

After a busy fall I am organizing myself to catch up my posts and share the projects and ideas that I have floating around. I am starting with the cranes in honor of Rick Anderson. Rick is a mentor of mine and is speaking at this years ANLA Managment Clinic. This event is a total blast and if you are in the landscape industry, it is your best chance to meet and share ideas with people from across the country. I will not be attending this year unfortunately, if I do not finish the renovations to our house by spring, my wife is going to throw me out. You can learn more about Rick and the Management Clinic herePosted by Picasa

Omaha Zoo Build 2006

Here is a picture of the completed build a day after we completed it. I went to take pictures the other day but it was too sunny and crawling with people. Can you believe that people are attracted by water? Maybe I'll go tomorrow morning, if I am not digging my own pond. Go to My Portfolio Hosted by Fotki or here for pictures. I did have to visit this feature the other day before I did all of the finish work on the current large scale feature we are working on, I am lucky to have this resource available. Posted by Picasa

This was built by professionals?

This picture speaks for itself. Believe it or not, the home owner is not happy, and the contrctor will not return. Unfortunately this is the misinformation and installation we face in the industry. We have already rebuilt this pond. unfortunately it will not be the last disaster we come across. Just remember, just because you are paid for a job, it does not make you a professional. Personal note: Flagstone is for patios, and in rare cases, the negative edge. We threw it all away. Posted by Picasa


Who wouln't want this in there back yard? I ordered filters for my camera today. This picture is good but it could always be better. Posted by Picasa

Serious Pumps

It is time to drop the pumps, Just a taste of whats to come. Call your friends, they will want to see this when it is done. 150 tons of stone, 40 tons of gravel, 1 week till go timePosted by Picasa

Hello Matrix

Here is the next generation of wetland and pondless design, the Aquascapes Designs matrix system. The matrix will enable us to pull off this negative edge with enough water to fill the upper pond and waterfall. The electrician promised me power by the end of next week. Posted by Picasa

Serious Equipment

The superintendant of th job could not figure out why I did not want his grader to dig the pond. Little did he know we were going to build an eight foot mountain to work off of where the pond is supposed to be. I tried to get our mini excavator out here for this, not to use it, just for the picture. This job would not progress without big equipment, we are fortunate to have it at our disposal..The question was posed to me today, " So we do one and I suppose we will have to do more big ones like this?" I hope so. Posted by Picasa
