Mowed Our New Grass Twice Now


The four and one half pallets of grass we've laid down is really coming along. In fact I mowed the yard for the second time this past Tuesday with my BIL’s riding lawnmower. Due to our lack of being able to get rain in this area we've been using well water from BIL James place next door. It is deep and spring fed. We run three 100ft 5/8” water hoses to the edge of the grass and from there we use two 50ft water hoses with sprinkler heads. As you can see from the photos it certainly keeping our grass good and green. (click on photos to enlarge)










The well water has a lot of iron ore in it and the water is so cold. In fact the water hoses actually sweats while watering. I'm not sure if the iron ore is the reason the grass is so green and growing so fast but it certainly hasn't harmed it.


We also have recently laid down several rows of the Centipede grass squares around the FHU area. As you can see it's coming along just fine. Next spring we will expand this area with more grass squares. We are hoping to do some flower bed work soon. Right now its just to hot to do anything other than maybe sit on the patio and watch the grass grow.

I plan to check with one of the local hardware stores for a stick of the 4-3/4” square x 98” fiberglass fence tubing for placing the hook ups inside it for a little cleaner appearance. At least the sewer hose and maybe the water hose.

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
