We just had a few old pine trees removed at Chad's house and I'm planning on putting some seed down. Next Tuesday - Saturday is supposed to be pretty raining here so I'm thinking Monday would be the best day to do it. Most of our landscaping plans are for next year but I figure this is something simple and fairly inexpensive that I can do to get ahead of the game ... and because I hate waiting.

Other plans for the yard include an ornamental tree, a horse rail type fence, and some lattice and planting (I'm thinking Clematis) up around the front porch.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

we have been putting down grass seed off and on for the last month. Depends on how sloped your yard is, ours keeps getting washed away....
Our picket fence is in, and our front garden and saplings. I still want to plant flowers around the outside of the fence, and put in some corner gardens in the backyard but other than getting the grass to grow I think we are done with the major projects.

I haven't done much of anything to our rental. The landlord doesn't care and I refuse to invrst in a place i won't be staying in very long. Do plan on doing veggies this month, but that's all.
