One of the pleasures of home ownership for me has been all the gardening and yard work that it entails. It was our unfortunate distinction to inherit a rather lack-luster front and back lawn. Most atrocious was the tree belt -- that strip of grass between the street and sidewalk -- which was, quite frankly, a lush patch of crab grass.
From all the research I've done online, autumn is the most ideal time to plant grass seed. So a couple of weeks ago, Trey and I began the project of ripping up the tree belt and then planting new seed.
This is what it looked like one week ago.
This is what it looked like 3 days later.
A little green fuzz.
And this is what it looked like this morning, exactly one week after planting.
We're sporting a thin, albeit promising, green carpet.
I did not expect for these blades to support snow for at least another two months.
