The grass is always greener....

in my neighbors' yards!

Today we begin to redo our front yard. Obviously we did not pick the correct grass 3 years ago, because it has completely died. Wish us luck with our project.

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. It takes a lot to keep a grass going strong!! I am sure you have talked to your local lawn & garden. The more tips the better! Love your home...

  2. The only tip I can offer is to grow your grass from seed instead of sod. No instant gratification, but the roots will grow deeper and the end result will be a stronger and healthier lawn. Good luck!

  3. Lots of hard work by my three guys today! Whole yard is tilled and turned grass next weekend.

  4. I have just about succeeded in removing all areas of lawn from my front and rear garden. What is left has a thick, rich, weedless carpet of ST Augustine grass; it is bulletproof and requires only mowing.

  5. St Augustine is what we are putting in! Have heard great things about it from several neighbors. We have tried every other type....

  6. Good luck with your grass. Your home is beautiful! Love the fan-shaped attic (?) window, bay window, & small window on the side of the house, the dormer windows and your front door & pediment.
