Whats a girl gotta do to get some grass?

October 20, 2008

No, not that kind. I’m referring to the kind that lives in one’s yard, which can in some cases, (specifically ours) cover up the mounds of dirt and rock that have been plaguing our front and back yards for months. Although, after what we’ve been through with this landscaping project, the “other” kind of grass sounds good about now.

Some of you are familiar with the nightmare that we have experienced with a landscaping guy out of Denver. Long story short, he was a lying sack of shit and was four weeks overdue on completing the project. With great pleasure, we fired him last week and began our search for a new company to finish the work. Four interviews later, and we have given our business to Curtis Manning, an old friend of Justin’s, who has his own landscaping and design company. We know that Curtis will do right by us, and if not, then Justin will sit on him–literally.

Even though planting sod in October, when the temperatures promise to dip below freezing this week, sounds like a risky thing to do, we have been assured that this Kentucky Bluegrass is strong stuff. So strong is this grass that if its roots don’t take hold in these next few weeks, they will lie dormant over the winter and patiently wait for spring to arrive before grabbing hold for dear life. If only I were that patient about things in my life.

Work begins on Wednesday and I could not be happier. Wish us luck and may the force be with the grass. Root! Root! Root!
