Zoysia Grass

Last summer (2003) we ordered some Zoysia Grass Seed off of E-bay.
A few weeks ago I started some of the seen in a tray.
Today I moved the “plugs” in the ground.

I am curious about how long it will take to spread.
I may have to put some real grass down till the Zoysia takes over.
I will give it a couple of week and see what happands.
There are a couple more picturesHERE

Here is a web site that sells Zoysia

Hypertufa

Last year ( 2003 ) we messed around with Hypertufa
It all started with me wanting to make “Rocks” for the pond area.
After a lot of searching the net I came across Hypertufa
Hypertufa is very east to make and use.
Equal parts of:
Portland cement
Sphagnum peat moss
Mason’s sand

Sue made some very cool little Grots
You can see some of last year pics HERE

Pond Garden

I had to move the lilacs back about 4 feet. That was an all day thing.
It took more then an hour per plant and there were more lilacs that I first thought.
Then I had to take the rock wall back another 5 or 6 feet.

I was left with a pile of dirt that went into getting the ground level.

Here you can see the 2 by 4’s that I used to get everythng level.
That are 8 feet apart just to give you some idea of the size.
Then came the rocks and blocks. That was the easy part.
