Landscaping, Part II

This post, the follow up to Landscaping, Part I, is more than a month in the making.  Thank you for your patience.

Without further ado, here's your update, in photo form:

Before starting
After tilling in more than 5,000 lbs of compost
The straw we used to protect the seeds
Started seeing these guys come up somewhere between the 1 and 2 week mark
Here we are today, Oct 1!
Leni mowed the lawn (LAWN!!!!) for the first time today.  A couple more mows, especially with a new (hasn't arrived yet) mulching blade for the mower will help get rid of the remaining straw.  Still keeping the dogs off of it until the first good snow pack to protect it from their paws and nails.  We don't want them rough housing too much on it until it is more established.  We are quite pleased and can't wait to enjoy it more in the future.

Keep It Real!
