Tropical Storms x Freshly Rolled Topsoil / Uneven Area + 42 =

..the 42 is for how many times I said ‘firetruck’. It was a slow and drawn out affair watching she soil wash away as it POURED..we had more rain in 15 hours then we did for 3 month over summer.

..but, all repaired and seeded…but if I ever meet that storm in person I am gonna punch him in the face.

And the grass is starting to sprout in the tester area too..we did not even block it off from the dogs..I wish the whole area looked like this and had grass coming up..but around 60% washed off during the storm too..good thing it was only a 12×12 area.

..and the area where all the seeds from the test area washed away to:

    “firetruck” !!! – THAT is some serious damage dude!!

    go figure that would have happened right after you laid the soil… had the grass taken hold and the soil settled, you would have been in better shape… you might look around greenland for what is left of the culprit ;-))

    looks like a good week ahead – keep on rollin’ – did you plop in some trenchs? i am all about the trenches..hahahah!!

    seriously – bummer downpour – at least you don’t live in truro!

      haha..I hear ya! I knew the storm was coming but I didn’t figure it would be this bad..not that it took more than 15 minutes to repair and as long as we have 10 days without torrential rain it should be ok..the grade is not that steep..much of it was also the result of not having gutters on the place as the water drained down thorugh this area as a resutl..gutters this weekend we hope!

      No, no trenches..yet! hehe..and I hear you..at least I am not in the Hub of Nova Scotia!..not that I have anything against hubs.

    No rain at all, and then too much. Argh.

    That grass should germinate in no time with the moisture, though.

    Wow, I would have been saying “firetruck” a lot too. I’m glad it only took 15 minutes to repair though.
