K7 Rides Again

right on! like the insight…sounds like a very justifiable explanation to me. how ’bout everyone else…would like others input as well since we all can interpret the same things in many ways [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

If your using gravel as your base it shouldn’t be much of a problem. If using larger stone, you may want to put down some sort of canvassing/matting material down first so you don’t lose all your dirt to filtering/run-off. Having your dirt hauled in? If not and you’re backfilling from stuff you’re digging up ( you have that nice red super-clay crap there don’t you) don’t forget to add peat/ or chipped mulch into the mix to help amend your top soil. Do a final grade (leveling). If you can, go with sod (can be expensive depending on the size of the area) and water the hell out of it. Instant green effect and with luck will root within 2-3 weeks and is cuttable shortly there after. If hand/ cart spreading seed I highly suggest then covering with penn mulch (once again, depending on area might not be feasable). Rain causes it to expand creating an excellent growing medium for young sprouts and it delivers the proper fertilizer ratio to the little guys while preventing seed loss to run-off and our feathered friends. (penn mulch works especially well if your growing seed on slopes where erosion could be a problem) Straw always works too. once it’s all established should be trouble free.
Any questions about landscaping feel free to ask [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] sorry if this isn’t too clear. it’s late on top of a fifteen hour day topped by a twelve hour one (f*ck*n deadlines) (2nd edit)

Let’s see…I believe I said "a million points to whoever can figure out that jumbled mess" so if you can type what is said during RAISINS…this bud’s for you (whatever you preference may be) [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Adios (not only did I pick up landscaping this summer but a little spanish too)
