So this is the first block in the MODA Modern Building Blocks. It's huge! 36 x 36. I can't say I am in love with it but I will wait to see how it looks with the other blocks.
For most of the summer my front yard has looked like this.....pretty bad.
It's a swale that goes around the house to keep water from going into your basement. Depending on your yard, most people need this (and don't know it) and that is why they get water in the basement.
The big truck pulled up bright and early on Friday morning.
My husband and nephew, Macen spent the morning "carpeting" the hill. Instant gratification!
It looks so much better, but now the battle is keeping it watered so it doesn't die. Thank goodness it is overcast today with rain predicted for the next 2 days. I think we are the only ones hoping for that!
The dirt in front will be new landscaping. I also want to replace the walkway and reconfigure it. So I guess we are putting the "labor" into Labor Day!
While they were laying sod, I was making pasta sauce with basil from my garden.....
and picking flowers. I love the combination of red and yellow!
Enjoy your weekend!
