In episode 7 of our 10-part series, watch as Lisa gets help breaking ground, and then tag along with Blaine Mugleston and the crew from Integrated Landscape Management as they tackle the ins and outs of the installation process. Day one is all about the underground work — drainage, irrigation and laying the hardscape pavers. Drainage is critical because the water needs to flow to the front of the house during a rain storm. A properly-installed and functioning irrigation system is what will keep your plants looking healthy, as we learned in episode 4. But another component of the irrigation system is the backflow preventer, which keeps the domestic water separate from the irrigation water, and keeps pollutants and fertilizer out of the domestic water line. Finally, tamped-down sand and a concrete edge will keep the pavers in place and looking beautiful as the landscape begins to take shape. On days two and three, the crew will finish installing the underground irrigation system and planting all of the trees, shrubs and vines.
