So we planted some grass seed about a month ago. The interesting thing is we live under five of the biggest trees you have ever seen. We are not talking redwoods but these things are huge. While we love our trees they do cause a slight problem. Our house lives in shade for half of the year and nothing really grows in the shade. We bought some shady grass seed hoping that it would grow and it did. It is not as thick as we would like but i think that will just take some time. Randi also mowed it last night which was her first time ever mowing, and it looks really good. So I present to you our grass.
