Last Friday, huge strides were made. We laid the sod! Because our neighbors own a sod farm, we were able to install sod for only $200 more than seed. A tiny amount when you consider that we added 4800 sq ft of lawn!
Our neighbors and friends came out in force to help us and we are so grateful! It looks beautiful and my goodness do I ever feel better! THANK YOU!
Now all we have left until it feels finished (I'll still want to add pretty touches and a fence, but they aren't so time sensitive) is to rake out the rest of the gravel in the back. We will move the playset back there and eventually put a trampoline and shed there as well. Ahh...major progress!
