Last week, Tim picked up some sod, and we spent an evening laying it down.
Tim had already cleared and roughly leveled the area after he built the compost bin, but did a once-over with a loop hoe and rake, to get any new weeds that had emerged and to adjust the leveling. While he did that, I picked out the stones that came up. Then we dampened the ground a bit. I don’t know if that’s proper procedure, but we figured it certainly couldn’t hurt.
After we finished laying the pieces, we gave it the best soaking we could with a watering can. After having to fill that can at least ten times (can you say tedious?), we went out the next day to get a little sprinkler.
So, here’s where we’re at:
Here’s hoping that we can keep the grass alive (without too much watering)!
