Shotgun?CorvusCamenarum said:Mine would be doing a lot better if I could keep the neighbor's kids out of it. The platoon or so of children living next door seem to think my lawn is the other half of their soccer pitch.
Not the one at my parent's place (I live in a flat so I don't have one) - theirs is dying off because of the 1 in 100 year drought we've been in for the last three or four years and because the frosts are starting to really come in nicely.iDuck said:Well it's that time of year. Lawns looking their best all around the world.
Already looked into that (the fence, not the shotgun); even offered to pay for it. Landlord said no. Fortunately the girlfriend and I will be out of this house in about 3 months or so (finally getting off the rentwagon and buying), and a fence is on my list of things I'm looking for in a new place to live.iDuck said:Shotgun?
I suppose you could always build a fence.
Before we re-did the grass we refered to our backyard as the garden of weedin'.yellow said:Our builder apparently cheaped out on grass seed.
Mine is on the 3 year track to goodness.. last year it looked like a barbie's head when you cut off all their hair. This year it's filled in a bit and the light fertilizer I out down has helped quite a bit.
Next year (or this fall), I will be killing the weeds (of which there are a lot) and thereby reducing the "greenness" by about 40%.
They dug it up when they were digging. If you like that check this one out at my beach house.iDuck said:Not bad CompUser. I whish I had a summer house..
Thats one hell of a rock you got in the upper-right-hand corner on the first couple pics there. Did you have it placed or was it there when you got there?
If you had asked me a couple years ago that I'd be living on a lake, I'd have laughed at you. But the water is a nippy 65° right now, but we're supposed to have 70s and 80s this week, so this weekend the water will be over 70° which will mean the slide will go in the water.UberMac said:Jealous of your lake! And pier
Not to be rude, but, isn't it "our" house - your family's? You seem to take great pride in calling everything they worked for yours, FWIW.CompUser said:The front and side yards at my house are doing very well. However the back yard has some parts of bare grass and around the perimeter there are some spots with no grass at all.
