May I Introduce......Lawn

Finally, it's completed.  The backyard no longer looks like the vacant lot of a crack house.  Now, it looks like the well groomed lot of a....  Anyway, we put in Fescue, and it seems to be doing well, at least in the hours it's actually been around.

Now, on to bigger and better things.


  1. Congratulations! Now, you can start removing it, step by step, and planting gardens. Just kidding. Your lawn looks great!

  2. In all seriousness, that is the plan, except the steps will be far between. In one or two years, the far side in the top picture will be replaced by a deck. Also, the front lawn is going, so we're at least moving back into the right direction.

  3. wow looks like a croquet lawn,well done

  4. I'm sure your kids will get a lot of use out of it while you plan future garden areas.

  5. That's a lovely looking lawn. We seem to have more invasives and weeds these days than grass. hahaha.

  6. Cottage Farmer, it's actually astro turf. At least in three weeks, I'll wish it was when I have to mow it.

    Sherlock, I know they will. It's quite difficult keeping them off of it at the moment.

    Thomas, give me a season, my friend. The weeds will come and visit. They always do.
