Changing up the back yard.

Well after years of fighting heat and dogs to try and keep a lawn green I gave up. A few weeks back I brought my tractor home and pulled out the grass. Now today I removed some concrete that was not poured right and started forming for new concrete. The plan is to make a sidewalk around the yard and install fake grass in the middle. No more maintenance.Attachment 6880

I can't wait to have no dirt.

I don't know if you were aware, but most cities/counties in So Cal are providing $2.00 a square foot rebates for removing water consuming grass.

I figured that out after I killed it all.

I like dirt and rock. I would put in nice rocks instead of fake grass. Unless you are making a putt-putt golf course?

I like that too but cleaning dog poo out of gravel is the worst. I don't plan on living here too many more years so I want easy and in this area this will be a huge selling point.

We are putting the base down now for the lawn.Attachment 6889
