    it is not that 59 people don't like it, it is that 59 people have nothing to be critical of. Fantastic job man!

    Do they have sheep living there, I see alot of straw! But on a serious note, why do you guys put straw, why not just lay some sod and be done.

    you make it sound like sod is easier... Its harder and more expensive. Drop some seed and throw some straw on top, thats it.


    edit- you realize straw is to protect the seed underneath from cold/frost and runoff right?

    Straw also breeds weeds

    How is laying sod harder? You go to all the trouble of doing those huge rock slabs that gotta weigh a few hundred pounds each or more and you don't finish the job with sod! Just makes the job look messy.

    Sod is a very minimal expense for the area you would have to cover. Next time just lay sod for a quick clean look.

    I only pay $100 for a 600SF pallet here.......60 rolls. About 10 rolls would have teken care of you there.
