It Came, We Sod, We Conquered - by Brad

Well, we received the sod at 2:30 yesterday afternoon - about 5 hours later than I hoped. Nonetheless, with the help of my dad, we worked until 8:00 last night and then I got up early this morning and finished it by 10:30.

Here are the fruits (or grasses) of our labor...

Front Yard:



Back Yard:



Now we have a whole lot of ground cover and other shrubs to decorate the other dirt patches. Then the next project will be touching up the exterior with additional trim and paint.

Very nice! I like the additional terrace you put in the back.

Thanks! The rock wall you see on the front is also a new terrace. The big rocks are in front of that (not pictured). Last night, Lindsey planted 144 small plants along the two terraces to start some ground cover. It is coming along!

Sounds like a "holy" number of ground cover plants...

We didn't quite get to 70 times 7, but we still have at least 40 to go.

Wow! Looks very nice. Maybe, as your new BFF's, the Tompkins need to come visit with the Bunches someday. :)

Sounds great. We would love to have you!
