Experience is Key
I have heard the phase that experience is key. And as a senior dog (I am 100 human years young); I would love to pass some wisdom down…. Plan, Participate, Party
Always plan your projects out, whether or not it is an yard project, or a life project. I have found that it helps for me. If I plan where I will hide a bone, I am more likely to find it later. In landscaping, a design plan or sketch is the beginning. Now measurements, even if you pace it off like I do, it must be done. How can you start, if you don’t know what you are getting into?
Participation always helps. To be present in the moment, makes it all worth it. I like to pace around an area and mark it, if you know what I mean. By determining the purpose of your landscape project, selecting your product style and staying on top of the action plan all add up to a winning combo. My team mates at Valley Rock can help you with this. They seem to know everything about products and their purpose.
Party, this is the fun phase. The work is done, and you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. In my case the bones of your labor. Sit, relax, enjoy your new water feature, BBQ Island, paver patio, and of course your family. All the years that I have been digging on this Earth, my family is what I value the most. So plan, participate and party! Life is good – Happy Digging!
