Wow, we make even more progress on one of our many projects! And it has been a cool and breezy couple of days, perfect for planting and trimming our plants. My foot is strong enough to walk on, so we got started going through the plants we've acquired over the past year to find the ones we want to put in our front yard. As a reminder, this is where we were in May, after we sprayed the yard with Round-up:
We paid a couple of guys to use a sod cutter and haul away the dead grass. It was worth the 300 bucks. Then I rototilled the yard, twice. Raked and raked and pulled roots, and sprayed any green sprigs that poked up with Round-up. Then we laid the front walkway, after digging a pile of dirt out and then adding base, pavers and gravel.
