|The bed area along the north side of the lawn is being defined.|
|A large trailer full of shredded bark was delivered.|
|The crew began covering the beds with bark while waiting for the sod.|
A large truck delivered nine pallets of sod around 1:30 this afternoon. They were quickly unloaded and the guys went to work installing instant lawn. No need for any captions on the following pictures. Bobbie spent a lot of time behind the camera today and her work tells the story of The Greening of 3283.
It has been nearly six months since the yard surrounding the cottage was stripped of grass, top soil [and snow] and became a construction site. Amazing transformations have taken place to the cottage structure and its mechanical/electrical systems. But it still sat in a sandy, dusty, dirty -- construction site. Until today. Today much of the feeling I've had for this place came back as the lawn where four generations of kids have played was returned. There is still a lot to be done: much more inside work and eventually more landscaping. But with green returned to 3283 it looks "right" again.
