Here’s the section of our property where I’m going to see if I can’t grow a lawn from seed.
It was just rocks and weeds when I first started, didn’t think to take any pics then. But this is where I’m at after initially tilling, sifting out all the rocks, and rolling.
Here’s the rocks I’ve sifted so far.
There used to be a lot of large lava rocks there that we had a contractor come out and haul off.
I’ve still got some grading and leveling to do. Plus, where the contractor ran his skid steer to get the lava rocks out was too compacted to rototil, so I’m going to have to break that area up with a pick axe and then till and roll it again.
I’m on a bit of a hold right now because a recent thunderstorm exposed some problems with the roof. We’ve got a guy coming out next week to give us an estimate on repairing/replacing the roof as needed.
Whatever we decide to do with the roof, I’m sure that’s going to be a high traffic area for them so I don’t want to do much more until all the roof work is done.
I’ll post more pics as things develop.
Planting Bermuda, pretty familiar with that particular grass from working at golf courses in the southern US. Pretty hardy stuff.
