a ransom for a lawn!!

we have a real yard!!! woo-hoo!! it is so exciting to see a green carpet out the back window instead of dirt and exposed tree roots. it's gorgeous and lush and...still alive (1 week after installation).
see the photos here.
the project was part of a 2 weekend production. after 11 yards of landscape mix (wheel barrowed in...ouch!) and 3 pallets of zoysia sod (green side up) we are go for lawn.
you'll see in the pics that wally was acting supervisor for much of the "fun". our backs were sore and our hands throbbed with blisters....but oh the lawn is a beautiful sight!
