Summer Projects

This summer I tackled a major project at our house. I relandscaped the back yard. The largest part of this project was putting in new grass. I removed all of the dead grass and top soil layer myself. This took many days with just me and my shovel.

After that, I spread eight cubic yards of organic compost over the whole yard and roto-tilled it into the soil.

Finally we laid down the fresh new sod. My wife, Laura, and her parents, all helped out. After that project I built a shed and spread mulch in the planter beds.

It looks great!
