Pass the grass

Our front yard was mostly finished last year, with the exception of a few tweaks and our grass. We have terrible grass. The summer heat last year killed anything that looked remotely good and weeds took over. This area, looked the worst:



Not only was it unsightly, it was messy. With no grass to hold the dirt in place, we were constantly battling dirt, mud, and debris all over our walkway and driveway.


We seeded the whole yard with Scotts EZ Seed, but the area above needed a little more oomph, so we filled in that area (and a couple other large patches) with Scotts Patch Master which worked really well for little money. Gotta love accomplishing tasks for as little as possible!


 No more dirty walkways and driveway.



We still have a little more yard maintenance to take care of, but for the most part, we're done with lawn care. Not I just have to motivate myself to mow all that lovely plush grass.


Side note: My garden grew in crazy good this year. I didn't loose anything and everything is so full and lush. It makes my inner wanna-be-green-thumb happy!


We also added a flagstone path to our neighbors house in front of our garden bed because grass just will not grow there.


We have a little landing/porch area outside our house that still needs a little sprucing up, but it already looks so much better with the addition of my new concrete planter-which I garbage picked, and a beautiful orange flower thing. Very technical terms here people. 


I'd love to add an outdoor rug to cozy the place up a little.


Now we have a giant pile of mulch in our driveway in preparation for our backyard transformation. Let's hope we have couple of nice (dry!) days to tackle some of the million projects we have lined up for the week.
