Did the mowing this morning–front and back. Also pulled some weeds. Fortunately, the weed barrier out back is keeping the weeds away. A few grew just outside the barrier so I pulled those but no more forest of weeds!
After yesterday’s weed-pulling-bonanza I decided to tackle the second massive job: mowing. I’ve been keeping the front of the house trim but the back of the house has gotten out of control. There’s just something so unappealing about mowing what I know is all weed. Ug. Anyhow… it took hours but I got all of […]
The grass was looking a bit shabby so I decided to get out there for some mowing. I only mowed the front lawn but I also got the new string trimmer out and tried to use that. I followed the directions in the book to the letter and even used the oil that came with […]
Didn’t have to water this morning because of the overnight rain. Did get the mowing done, however. I still haven’t used my string trimmer but I think that’ll be on my list this weekend–to do the fine trimming around the edges. Yard looks nice trimmed up like this.
I pulled some more weeds and did a little bit of directed watering on the new flowers planted yesterday. Randy, my father-in-law, was nice enough to mow our lawn and to work on the edges of the grass against the walkways in the front of the house. He was out there working with a manual trimmer […]
Finally tackled the backyard. Got the jungle mowed down to a more reasonable height. I also pulled a bunch of weeds and did some serious prunning of the 4th of July Roses along the garage. Despite my cuts from the thorns it was totally worth it. It looks so much better. I also got the […]
I got home from work early today and decided to take advantage of the overcast mid to high 70s and get the lawn mowed. I decided to set the blade height to cut the grass lower than I was. I tried setting it to the lowest it would go (testing it on a small spot […]
Finally got the mowing done between rain storms. Phew! That was a beast of a chore. I also got some weeds pulled in front. Nowhere near all of them but every little bit counts. We still have some bald spots and while I have nothing against baldies (being one myself) it would be nice if […]
The grass is finally dry enough that I can mow. It appeared to us that Mile Hi Aeration may have aerated but it we couldn’t find any sign of seeding on our lawn so they are coming back tomorrow sometime (supposedly) to seed again. I decided that it was important to get out the mower […]
I finally got to the mowing and boy did it need it. It never did rain today but parts of our lawn is again growing like crazy. If only the brown spots would take a hint.« Previous Entries
