Still not perfect by any means, but we're getting there after three years of planning, work, and mowing twice a week between April and October. Regular applications of organic fertilizer have helped the lawn fill in nicely over time too.
It was very pleasant and rewarding to survey the results of yesterday's activities this morning about 9am, when these pictures were taken, as I enjoyed the morning quiet, soft air, and that second mug of coffee. Ahhhh. Suburban. . . dad strikes again!
Now, we really need to do something about the bed with the weed-filled ground cover.
