    Did you plant grass seed? Or just get it to grow in?

    If you planted seed, what have you been using? I have been filling in ALOT of dead spots in my yard, and I'm using Scotts Pure Premium Sun & Shade Mix, with chicken & cow chit fertilizer. Now I just need to respread some Scotts Turf Builder over the top..

    it will go to the road, I got to get four more of those pavers...

    and those pavers are heavy...my back is killing me...plus trying to put them down onto of un-even concrete that looked like shit before, and at that slope, and try to match the curves of the landscape is a bitch.


    bought a tapper, multiple bags of paver base and leveling sand, and then 34 of those pavers...and hauled them all in multiple trips from Lowes in the civic hatchback....was fun.....not.

    Pavers are freaking light compared to 80lb bags of crete. I moved 200 a couple weeks ago by hand because I didn't have a spotter for the forklift. Now that sucked for I had to bend underneath a beam to pick up every single one.

    Wouldn't it have been easier to rent a truck? does lowes do that? I know HD does for fairly cheap.

    I rented it before...the time alloted is bullshit..75 minutes for $29....

    by the time I get it to the house, and start unloading it...I got like 10 minutes to get it back...I did the furnace with their truck, just barely made it back in time...

    A lot easier then making 4 trips in your civic, and breaking your back trying to get shit to fit in there when they can drop the shit with a forklift onto the flatbed.

    your yard looks great, but you need mroe color in there to break up all the green. flowers, verigated plants, ones with sliver leaves, etc.

    Impressive.

    You are quite the shade tree mechanic and the handy man.


    My father would be envious if he saw how quickly and fully your lawn grew in. He, unlike you, doesn't exactly seem to have luck with the yardwork.
