Progress

When we first moved into our house, our backyard looked like this:

 

We tried watering and seeding last year, but to no avail.  By the end of summer it was a mass of dried-out, yellow patches of dead grass and if you looked closely, you could see the little tumbleweeds blowing by…

This spring (late, late spring) we determined to do something about it, so we rented a tiller, raked it all out, and had it hydro-seeded.  Here’s it’s current condition:

Ok, so it has a couple of bald patches, but we’re working on it.  We cast some more seed and the front part is looking a little bit better.  If we can’t find a Rogaine equivalent for grass, we’ll just extend the patio in the back and call it good.  All in all, not too shabby for a couple who’ve never had an actual yard to maintain.

Now if we can only get the front landscaping under control… and the flowerbeds… and the painting…  and the office re-organized…and…and…and…

I love being a homeowner.
