Hard Work

This weekend Geoff and I worked to put sod down in the entire front yard. We ordered 20 rolls of sod and put down 17 rolls (425 square feet) down in the front yard, and the rest are in the back yard. We got up and were working at 4am using the truck headlights for light until the sun came up. (and the battery died!) I worked until the baby woke up and then Geoff did most of the work after that. Geoff had to do a wedding and he finished laying down the sod and then quit to get ready, and I finished filling in some holes and cleaning up. We are both pretty sore today, but we are glad to have the grass in. Geoff also worked almost through the night last weekend to put up the wall and fill it with stones. Here are some before and after pictures of what the yard looked like before and what it looks like now.
