And....we have grass (lawn, that is)
Sorry for the lack of posts, we have been very busy both with the yard and on other things as well.
We finally got the planter area in the middle of our front yard filled with bark (took a lot of time for me to spread out landscape filter fabric and then move 23 yards of bark by hand). You can see the planter I am referring to in the middle of this photo.
I think you should also be able to see the grass starting to grow in the dirt areas, and this is very exciting for us. I weeded about an acre of yard area by hand and then spread the grass seed and fertilizer using our riding mower and a tow-behind spreader I borrowed from my sister and brother-in-law. We then turned on the sprinklers and crossed our fingers!
It has been about a week, but it looks like the grass is starting to come in OK! Another month or so and I can start thinking about mowing....
