This was intended to be a tutorial with pics….but I’m having technical difficulties…
with both computers! Ahhhh!
So you’ll just have to follow along with some before and afters.
So as you can tell from the picture below, we needed some side yard help on the rental house BADLY!
In fact, one lady drove by the house after seeing my Craigslist add for our rental, and e-mailed me to say she wouldn’t want to come home to “that” every day! Yikes. Thanks for being brutally honest….it kicked my butt into high gear!
Now in my defense, we had only been working on the house for two weeks.
…and the inside was finally starting to look good, but the outside still looked pretty disastrous!
and then I found some free sod on Craigslist!
Truthfully, there is quite a bit of free sod on Craigslist if you live in a city.
I had my choice from two different places, both posted that day.
Here is John starting to take the rocks and plants out.
I then took the shovel and dug a few inches down and raked any rocks, weeds, and other weird stuff up.
This is the pile of dirt we had when we were finished. I guess we had more leveling to do than we thought!
We got pretty dirty! There was a fire down the road that same day and when we went to get coffee, they asked if we had come from the fire!
…yes that is a speaker in the stroller and I am wearing my two year olds head band to keep my hair out of my face! Just keepin’ it real!
On the bright side, this only took a day, and it was FREE!
Such great results!
Hope you’re having a great week!
