Saturday was the first day in weeks I had an opportunity to cut the lawn - and even then, it was on the highest setting for the wheels because there was no way that the mower would get through it any other way. Even at that setting, it still had to go through the mud and the muck. And yes, it had to get through it. I would have called in a professional service to cut the lawn if it went on another day or two.
And due to the inclement weather, we didn't get to work on our hillside before it greened in. Normally we tackle about 25' of it, and think out the weed trees and such. After it's greened in, you need pith helmets and machetes. I guess we'll do it in Autumn.
I will say, the rain has made everything very very green, so at least it looks nice. See?
While we do the landscaping for us, it's nice to get some positive feedback from the neighbors. Many have told us that they like what we've done. As we were taking out a bush last weekend, one stopped by in her car saying that in the 30 years she's lived here, the yard and corner have never looked this nice.
That was cool to hear.
