Adina,
I love your articles, and the photos. Well done! : - )
I'm sure your GS, likes playing on the pesticide free lawn. : - )
He sure is a cutie.
Goodness, I do remember tamping down the soil after the seeds were spread in our yard. : - )
Your article brings back a lot of memories. : - )
You know, I kind of like the clover, and so do the bees.
I've always thought that weeding is like therapy, and watering is like meditation.
Thanks for an informative, and fun article, with great photos! : - )

Thank you, guys! It was fun to write this article and rememeber how it was when we did it. I'm still having fun when watering the lawn, though not so much fun when I have to weed!LOL
Jules, I also like clover and it's beautiful when blooming and yes, the bees love it too! But someone here in Romania was just complaining about having so much clover in her lawn that the grass was almost invisible...and I wouldn't want this for my lawn too! The therapy continues!LOL

Nice article Adina! I have an area that I want to put in grass for the pups in the backyard. Never got around to it last fall so time to prepare for this fall.

I sowed my lawn a few weeks ago, and I'm excited to come home every day to see how much more my grass has grown from the previous day. I love it!
