Update on our Summer Project

If you will remember, last month our "Summer Project" started out like this:

And now it looks like this:
Can you even believe how beautiful it is?! It is so full and feathery. I actually mowed it for the first time this week. I am so impressed with my brother-in-law's strategy to spread fine bark dust on top of the seed to keep it in place and moist. THAT is why is looks so good... oh, and the 8 straight days of rain we got the week after we planted.
Thank you again Mike and Jim for all your hard work on this yard. We could not have done it without you!

WOW! The 'after' photo looks like the type of thing that a landscaping salesman would photoshop in to see you on their services! It doesn't look real!

Your brother should use that picture to sell his services...!
