Hot and Dirty
Friday, April 22, 2011
We finally got the yard done. Now the hard part, keeping it green.
Thursday, the sod finally arrived. We spent nearly five hours laying it. Not an easy job, but I was determined to finish. I kept thinking of the biggest loser. What made them keep going? Well, Bob and Jillian, and a huge cash prize, of course, but what really keeps them going is their brain. The brain is the muscle that works the hardest.
Here are a few pictures of the process.
it's coming along.
we bought three pallets, the first we got down in under an hour. Then it got hot and rough.
I was finding dirt in the most unusual places. LOL
We didn't have enough for the swell, which belongs to the city anyway. I've been calling, but they haven't phoned back yet. On MOnday I'm going there in person.
Plus our pest control guy, said we may be able to get a discount from the water due to us laying down new sod. I surely hope so.
This has been one heck of a project. BUt, you see that fence in the background? Joe and I put that up ourselves. I joke, he was the brain and I was the brawn behind that one.
Lots of hugs Heidi
