This isn’t a great picture, but I took it in a hurry and had to get going this morning:
but I have some grass now. I must say that this is the first time that I have used sod, and it sure is “easy”. My whole body is exhausted and sore, but I have a complete lawn. I am conflicted from an environmental/sustainability standpoint about installing sod, versus seed (transporting hundreds of pounds of grass & dirt vs. 10 lb of seed), but decided that the area is small and so much of our yard will be low impact environmentally, that is it was a small impact overall. Frankly, I have done everything the hard way, we could stand to do something the easy way.
I celebrated the completion with a nice Fat Tire (Thank you Adam & Maggie!)
