    Latest new lawn project completed with pics.

    Everyone likes pics so here is a few of a new project completed Monday evening. The deer are helpers of mine, whatever they eat means I have less to haul away. This place had a big pile of rocks right in the middle which I moved to berm up the edge of the property. We raked up a lot of rocks on this job and still had to haul in top soil to make this project work. Completed this Monday and had snow overnight and today, so far about 10 inches. I seeded this heavily with annual rye and tall fescue then added starter fertilizer. Raked the area with the pinestraw rake and rolled it.

    The first and last pictures are from the same approximate location. Wish I had remembered the camera to take the initial pictures.

    That's a pretty area Steve, and it reminds me of the Black Forest area north of Colorado Springs and the Franktown area southeast of Denver.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    nice job!

    This certainly explains why you wanted your 4520 without a loader- the ability to work in tight spaces. I did a "favor" job for someone building a house with my B21 once. The floor of the garage needed gravel put down and compacted. The block walls were up. Therefore, I could not bump the walls even once. You had the same constraint here- you are not allowed to hit a tree. At all.

    It's nice that you have customers that want it done right 1st, and then worry about price 2nd. I wish more of the world was like that.... In the long run it would not be that much more expensive, but it should would be better.

    That turned out really nice. Looks like it will extend the living area by quite a bit. It's a really nice feeling to get projects like that done.

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys. Now I hope the seed comes up.

    This customer bought this place in the fall so we have lots of things to do around here. Need to build new handrail for the upper deck with stairs leading to the new lawn. Might build a lower patio area with flagstone we will see when it warms up, this morning it is -9F which is pretty cold this far south.

    Browsing the forum and came across this earlier thread and thought I would add a few pics to show how it looked last summer. It is improving each month so it has worked out well considering I can't put alot of water to it. These new pictures are primarily rye and this past fall the Fescue has come up. Hoping for a good stand of Fescue this year if I can water it enough.

    The first three pics are from about the same location, the last pic is from the side of the house near the front driveway.

    Pete and Randy,
    I posted pics of a new small landplane build in attachments last weekend, this demonstrates why I wanted one. It would have helped to smooth out an area such as this.
