a new seed…


When we last left off  the step had been completed but I needed to complete some finishing landscaping around the edge of the patio. It really isn’t the best time of year to put lawn seed down but we thought we would give it a try. And it did not turn out too bad so far.

We decided to buy some simple garden soil in bags as it was such a small area that needed seeding. Once we got it home, we dumped them into our wheelbarrow and dumped the seed on top and just started mixing. Not sure if there is a better way to do this but it was the method we went with. My youngest Jared did most of the work and it was a hot summers day when it got completed. I was real happy he was around to help.

Once the soil got mixed, we a started to spread in in the areas surrounding the deck. We also gave it a good watering throughout the late morning and waited. We were hoping for the best but knew that we were heading to Ottawa in a few short days and hoped it would survive.

imageIt is not doing too bad…It’s coming! Again it is really a tough time of year to try to grow grass but we thought we would give it a try. We will guide it through the fall and hope for the best next summer. Just so happy to be finishing the deck and ready for fall. Just have to add the railing on one side by the BBQ and we will be done this summer. Gives us the fall and winter to plan the rest of the hard scapping.
