Hi, remember me? Yeah, I’m the crazy gal that writes this little ‘ol blog. I’ve been uber busy with regular life recently and haven’t had a chance to share anything in weeks. During that time, I made a business trip to Juneau that included a little personal time with the hubs who tagged along to play chauffeur. I’ll share some of our exploring soon, but for now here’s a quick update on our hydroseed.
Things are looking nice and green, providing the perfect contrast for the falling leaves, which I personally love and have no intention of raking unless I’m going to jump in the pile. Although some spots are definitely thicker than others we are pretty pleased with how things look.
The area just off the garage is obviously the most lush. We didn’t do anything different here than any of the other areas, so maybe it’s just better tilled soil here since those tubes mark the location of our septic tank which required excavation and fill during constuction.
The side of the house is probably the sparsest section, but it’s also the area with the worst drainage. Hopefully the patches that have taken root will reseed and fill in the bare spots as things come back in next spring.
These shots were taken just before we took down the dog run and gave the fur babies free reign of the yard. They absolutely love having such a large area to romp and did just that ALL DAY for the first two days. That made for very tired puppies and a very quiet evening. 🙂
The hubs still needs to get the gates made and installed, but things are secure enough to keep the kiddos in and other things out for now. The gates can wait until he finishes his priority project – building a fairly large storage shed before winter hits so we can clear out the garage and reclaim our indoor parking before we have to bust out the ice scrapers pre-commute. We’ve already had a few mornings with frosty windows so it won’t be long. Eventually that shed will convert into a greenhouse when we build a big “shop” elsewhere on the property. I’ll share some of the construction and organization once it’s done, so stay tuned!
