When we moved to our new place in February, we were excited to have a yard. The largest challenge was how absolutely bare it was. Here is a view of the brown dirt with a bit of grass taken from our water tank looking towards the grapes out the back.
Cam and I would work hard to dig up this part of the lawn in 3 sections. Here I'm raking the first one. In the bottom you can see Cam started watering it and the soil wasn't bad once it got turned over. We spread about 4 boxes of seeds and had many evenings of digging, raking, sowing, and watering.
Now check it out! This was such a great shot and took us a few tries before getting Nevlin to actually walk on Sunday afternoon. We are very proud of the new lawn and have really used it a bunch. FYI sewing grass from seed isn't the easiest thing to do, but the end result of watching the little guy run across the lawn as you hang up laundry is priceless.
