It looks like you guys did a great job of it. LOL! sod IS heavy. Funny how it doesn't look so heavy. One looks at those rolls & thinks - hey, no problem, I can handle that -- & then you pick it up & find out how much it weighs. Dog! Better take some Aleve there Sue or you won't be walking tomorrow at all. The thigh muscles got a major work out from that.
Great to see things coming together so nicely. Soon you can plant your bed in the back there. Can't wait to see it.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Ahh, yes, Aleve and a gin and tonic did the trick! Thumbs up
The weather is so nice today, I think I can walk around at a nursery and pick a few things out for that back bed. Rolling my eyes. I will walk along the railroad ties to get to it since I need to avoid walking on the new sod, can't wait a month to plant it. Big Grin

I'm awed & inspired by everything you've accomplished in a relatively short period of time! And the sod really pulls it all together & gives it a finished look. ENJOY!
