Reynolds Landscaping grows from father and son's strength June 27 2014

Mark Reynolds sat in the shade on his backyard patio with his son, Harrison, after a hard day at the office.

"When something goes wrong, we have to make sure we don't blame"

By early May, they were already burned brown by the sun. They looked out over the backyard grass and grinned. The landscaper's lawn is artificial turf.

"With all these trees back here," said Mark, "I would seed the lawn every spring or summer, then the dogs would beat it down, and it would look terrible."

Harry smiled. "The ecological plus is that you aren't putting chemicals in the ground, and you are saving fuel by not mowing."
