While I've been composting for the past few weeks another outdoor project has been looming above me...the front yard.
A few months back we had a driveway poured, and while this resolved the bulk of our front yard problems, it left a larger problem for the rest of the yard.
The plan was to lay sod around the driveway and easily create a magazine-quality front yard....talk is always easier than action. I went outside yesterday to start work on preparation and realized that a ton of concrete debris and rocks has integrated itself into the soil. Not good for grass.
So now the plan is to craft a large sifter for the top soil and shovel the bulk of the yard through it. Hopefully this wont take a ton of time and will produce good results. Someone once said "The harder you work, the better the results"...yeah.
Meanwhile I can think of the type of grass I want to lay...

Let's talk about gardening some this weekend. I'm helping Abby with things she wants to grow also.ReplyDelete
-What are you planning to grow?
-Are you going to buy the little plants after the last frost, or start growing from seed soon?
-Did you choose your back yard because the front yard would be tacky, or because you get more sunlight in the back per day?
