Time to Build a Techo-Bloc Fire Pit This Winter!

January 10, 2022

Winter has arrived, it is time to build a Techo-Bloc Fire Pit. When you’re entertaining outdoors, create unique spaces that will make your guests want to linger longer. Fire pits and fireplaces will do that and more as they act as a natural gathering space and become instant conversation starters. Whether you’re seeking clean and contemporary lines, rustic earthy inspiration, or traditional outdoor spaces, evenings by the fire never looked so good.

When is the Best Time to Start a Hardscaping Project in Northern VA & Why?

November 18, 2021

There are many reasons why Fall and Winter are the best times of year to start hardscaping projects. The major reason is timing: build your hardscapes in winter and you’ll be able to enjoy them come spring. But timing is not the only advantage to installing hardscapes in the Fall or Winter. Off season cost savings because Winter is a slower time of year for landscapers and hardscapers.

Slower demand means hardscaping supplies and labor are less expensive in the Fall and Winter. That can certainly translate to greater savings on your end, or the ability to afford higher-quality materials or a more ornate design than you otherwise could. Call RSSY today at (703) 339-8095 to get great hardscaping ideas!

Time to Sod in Preparation for the Winter in Northern Virginia

October 29, 2021
Winter is fast approaching  and now is the time to SOD.  
 
When your old grass dies, it gives off nutrients that actually benefit the new sod above it. The main nutrient that the dead grass layer provides is nitrogen. Applying sod directly over grass is advantageous because it requires less work.
 
RSSY offer four types of SOD grass on pallets. 

·TALL FESCUE GRASS: 600 SQ FT PER PALLET OR 10 SQ FT PER ROLL
·BLUEGRASS: 600 SQ FT PER PALLET OR 10 SQ FT PER ROLL
·ZOYSIA GRASS: MINIMUM ORDER 100 SQ FT OR FULL PALLETS
·BERMUDA GRASS: 500 SQ FT PALLET

Call (703) 339-8095 for pricing and delivery information or visit our website.
