It has taken 4 years... our yard was torn up when we did our master suite room addition 4 years ago and right after construction was completed, Jeff was diagnosed... skip forward 2 years before Jeff had the strength to start working on the yard...... then killing the old grass, cutting it down, killing, cutting, killing, cutting, rototil weekend, holiday season, basketball season, sprinkler installation, football season, holiday season, basketball season, raking, leveling, preparing the soil, swim season, Grad Nite season... and finally TODAY!

I heard a big truck coming down the street at 6:55AM I knew our sod was here! I jumped out of bed, threw on some clothes, grabbed the camera and started shooting! We had 2 huge pallets delivered... 1,050 square feet...... here are the before shots... ...and Chris being a dork when the first piece of sod was put down! I'll post the after shots later this afternoon. Jeff's Dad is here helping, too, so there are 3 generations of Locher men making sure the sod goes in perfectly! I CAN'T WAIT!!!! WOOOO HOOOOO...

OMG, look at that fence. A picket fence. Why am I not surprised? Hey, if you need any help painting it white, let me know! :)

Can't wait to see the after pics!
