Oh, hello!

Posted by MANDI at 7:40 PM
Sorry, I've been a wee bit busy this week and by the end of each day I could hardly move enough to deal with dinner, baths and bed never mind about such things as blogging. What have I been doing? Well, I think I'll make this one a bit of a photo essay.
Remember the turf we laid last weekend? We ended up liking it so much we thought we'd do some more. So we had another big pile of dirt delivered...


Then I ordered the turf and arranged for Hubby to collect it after work on Friday. Which was kinda dumb because it meant I had to get the dirt spread during the week. So I hopped to it and got to work...



The turf was duly collected and we had to do a few last minute bits of preparation, including compacting the soil so that the turf could be laid upon it. As with any job, safety equipment is vitally important...


As is shadowing the person whose jobs you would like to take over...



And by mid-afternoon on Saturday we had us some new lawn. And some aching bodies.

Oh, thanks a lot. Like I don't already have suburban lawn envy.

You know it Kaz!
Thanks, Lorraine.
Sorry, Liz. If it's any consolation we're on an acre so it's not exactly the regular 'burbs :)
Heaps of space, Iris. And we know how lucky we are :)
