Lawn Update

We created some more lawn last night. Finally caught our neighbor on the east side at home last night and checked in with him regarding what's his, what's ours, what he's OK with us doing, etc. Short version: Everything but the peonies over there, we can have our way with.

So, we set about ripping out the weeds, brush, etc. over there and got about 1/2 the length of the scrub area cleared completely. It works out to about 2/3 of the area, as it tapers as you go up the driveway. From the driveway all the way to his house. Seeded, limed, fertilized and watered the whole area. Let's hope it goes as well as the rest of the lawn so far.

I also mowed the lawn last night. I know I just did it on Saturday, but with the dull blades on the mower I have to keep on top of it. It went a lot easier than the first time because the grass was so much shorter - it was just a trim.

While we were discussing the area we worked in last night, our neighbor told us that the previous owner had spent a lot of time pulling out all the grass that was in front of the house when she bought it, and now we'd gone and ripped all that out and replaced it with grass. I kind of got the feeling that he thought it was a waste of effort somewhere, but whatever. It's our house now.
