Although it may not seem like a step in the right direction, it is certainly an improvement over the weeds and hard, packed dirt that has been our front yard thus far this year.
The winter-like spring and the tropical rainforest-like weather that we've had this summer have made it nearly impossible to do any yard repair. The past 48 hours devoid of torrential rain afforded us a window to get the black dirt spread on the yard. Next up, a little grass seed, and then (hopefully) a gentle rain twice daily. Soon we'll have a lush lawn to play and lay on!
