Thinking of planting a new lawn!
I had a lovely lawn that was planted under a majestic Chinese elm that, unfortunately contracted Dutch elm disease about 5 years ago and had to be taken down (I almost sold my house that week!)
When the tree was taken down, they assured us that we could still have a lawn or plant whatever we wanted where the tree had been. NOT! Nothing has grown there since! Except gophers!
I'm thinking of bringing a few truckloads of soil to the area to try another lawn. Why, you might ask?
Cause I mowed the neighbor's lawn (they don't care much about taking care of their yard), sucked up a ton of their leaves and watched my compost pile steam and reduce about 8 inches in a couple of days! And OH the decomposing is making me all twittery! LOL
Makes me smile! Nancy
