Garden Tuesday: Dirt

To grow new, fresh, green-carpet style grass, evidently you need to kill all the old grass and add dirt.

A lot of dirt.

A little baby backhoe helps, too.
 
 At least the flowers in the planters get to live.

 This is the archway for the wedding.  Not so pretty right now!
Let's hope the landscapers know what they are doing, and can obtain excellent grass in under 2 months!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Our teacher in the Master Gardener class was quick to point out that the stuff we grow things in is called soil and the stuff under our finger nails is dirt :-). That has always stuck with me. Hope you get a great lawn.

Very interesting.......... I'm hoping you post luscious green grass photos before winter!

Big Dude, when dirt is called "soil," that means it's really expensive dirt.

I bet your new grass is going to be gorgeous!

carpet-style grass is a noble goal in any time frame--good luck!

You're a very determined lady. Nice, carpet-like grass is a lot of work. Hope that dirt works out for you. The right soil makes a huge difference.
