We have Grass!!!

Little tiny sprouts, all over the back yard!  Bob put down seed last Sunday, and then it got rained on ALL WEEK - which is why we rushed to get seed down last Sunday.  The bare spots in back look like they need a shave.  :-)  I'm terribly excited, and there will be no walking on it.  You hear me?  No walking.

I suppose it's probably just as well that we didn't get seed down in the spring - it wouldn't have made it through the dry summer.  So we'll give it some TLC this fall, and then overseed in the spring.  Maybe even a little fertilizer.

Woo hoo!

woo hoo!!!

Out o' curiosity what variety did you pick? You've got fairly similar conditions to ours, and I need to reseed...might as well piggyback on your research!

Agway "shade" variety. It's got a bunch of stuff in it, but it includes two varieties of fescue which is what I wanted. From what I read from the lawn fanatics on the GardenWeb, fescues are good for heavy shade.

Thanks, I'll put it on the list...and drag poor V up to agway some night this week. Poor kid has been eating out more than in for a week, it just worked out that way.
