    Thanks for the tip I have been going around the yard and randomly pulling a couple pieces up to see if it is wet underneath and so far so good

    Thanks man here is one more pic I mowed my monkey grass down before I tilled so it should come back good. I went looking for a japanese maple today to put in the bed in front of the porch but could not find one I liked but I will post a pic when I find one. I cant wait to get to lay some stripes on the new lawn.

    I had a full day of mowing scheduled for today but we finally got some rain and it has been raining all day so I had some more time to go look for the maple. I found one I really like and it has a nice weep to it already (crimson queen). I will try to plant it tomorrow when I get finished mowing if I have time but for now here is the pic I promised.

    Thanks man it will be nice to not have the worst looking yard on the street and coming in every evening pulling mowers to the worst looking yard. LOL

    Haha that is always nice!

    Now you've got me in the mood to start a project! I don't have the worst looking yard in the neighborhood but it's far from the nicest.

    Maybe I'll make a nice little spot for a Japanese Maple..

    Yea I know what you mean my yard was just straight weeds so I'm excited about it. I have lived here 5 years and I had the nicest maple at my old house I always wanted another one. Just be patient when looking for one I literally went to 10 places looking before I found this one but I love the fire red they turn just before dropping their leaves. Good luck

    That's good advice. I will be patient.

    They really are so pretty. How much did you pay for your Japanese Maple?
