Last fall I posted about our dreadful back lawn(I use that term loosely!). We killed everything back there and planted some seed, which is the same thing we did to our front yard the year before.
The seeds sprouted last fall, and I’m happy to report that it’s doing well this spring. See? We actually have grass growing!
And it cost almost nothing.
Just a bag of seed and some elbow grease(spreading, raking, and watering).
Much, much cheaper than sod.
It’s not perfect(there are some bald spots, so we’ll overseed again this fall and then we should be good to go), but I don’t know that sod would look perfect either. And considering how expensive sod is, I’ll happily take a few bare spots in my lawn, thank you very much.
