Two years ago my husband and I got out and really cleaned things up. We put a border all around the 'lawn' area with a raised garden area for my vegetable plants. Then he hurt himself and had hernia surgery and the yard fell apart again.
So, last week I called a landscaper.
He is coming back tomorrow to lay sod. I almost can't wait to see what it is going to look like when it is done. I am so excited! I will finally have a really nice backyard that I want to go into. We can kick a ball around, or just chase the dogs. I know it is going to be one more thing to keep up with, but I'm still excited. Even after putting the tennis court in, there is still such a big lawn area (hey, we are in California, so most people get about 100 square feet for a yard!)
It has been hard keeping the dogs off the yard for 2 days. They love the smell of the compost and want to go roll in it. Um, no thanks!
