Today almost felt like when we were back working on the houses. We had a goal, we worked until we were done and it felt like we made a decent amount of progress. Our old supervisor Nathan just happened to be visiting a friend in our neighborhood so he even stopped by!
So here is our checklist as far as I know:
Digging out the trenches we dug last year
(Deciding if we need all the trenches we have or need to make a few new ones)
Putting in the sprinklers (pipes and heads)
Keeping the weeds away
De-rocking the yard
Installing trees, plants and bushes
Somewhere in there we also want to dig out the backyard. We'll use some of that dirt to fill in areas that aren't quite high enough for level ground so that needs to come just before installing sod.
The yard up until Tuesday
What is left (not doing all of it this year)
The front park strip
One of the other park strips
Last park strip
Mid-raking of the front park strip
After picture: looking good
Just the beginning of the pile...
