Reno from St Augustine to Yukon Bermuda
Hi all!! New to the Forums!!
I have been lurking around and i have finally decided on how to approach my renovation.
Location: Houston Texas
Soil type: What they call black gumbo.
Size: 2k sq ft
Steps so far -
1. I rented a sod cutter and removed all of the sod. my backyard is full of trees and yard was neglected, so i used it to resod the back yard.
2. i hired a guy to grade (box blade) the front yard after all of the sod was removed. $150 for his services. The yard was EXTREMELY bumpy.
3. I spread 2 yards of sand to level out edges. We had rain in the forecast and i figured it would smooth out things. There was a tree in the yard that had been taken out, and while raking debris/big clods of dirt after final grade, i noticed some roots so i pulled them out and filled with sand. Yes a lot of work.
4. 4/27 Timing was almost perfect and we received about 2-3 inches of rain. A bit messy but i took notes of any low spots, very few bc i had the yard graded. But overall it smoothed out pretty good. s
I will keep you updated.
