This is not going to be the most captivating post; a departure from my usual, I know. I don’t even have any pictures to show you. But, I do have a few more outside updates to fill you in on because celebrating progress is always important!
In this post, I mentioned that we were hoping to get a few things done before summer set. I wanted to fix up our deck, remove the hot tub and walkway, as well as fertilize the lawn. Well, we didn’t get to all of that. But last week we hired someone to aerate and fertilize! Normally I would have loved to DIY this but our To Do list is long and nap time is much too short. Hiring help is a good plan for us. We grabbed a bag of grass seed and top soil so that’s what we’ve been working this past week. We hope it will bring some life back to our neglected and decrepit lawn. Cross your fingers that this all works!
The leaves are starting to fall and we have more apples to clean up but that’ll be it for this fall’s Outside To Dos.
My aspirations for Spring:
- Fertilize again because we are in serious rehab mode now
- Fix the deck (install railings, remove walkway, and secure any loose boards)
- Fix sprinkler system. It’s currently hosed (har har) and it’s the main reason why our lawn sucks.
- Remove hot tub
- Powerwash the deck (it’s needs a really good scrubbing)
Anyone else doing some last minute lawn CPR before the snow flies? By this time last year, we had already gotten dumped on!
