Saturday I Mowed the Yard

green grass growing

Growing, growing, mowing, mowing

For the first time in 11 years I mowed the lawn.

No, it wasn’t all that tall.  I planted it about 3 weeks ago, maybe 4.

When I moved to Tucson from Iowa I left behind all my lawn mowing and weed whacking equipment.  (I left my snow shovel there too)  The rocks in my Tucson yard in the past 11 years have needed regular spraying to keep the weeds from taking over.

If you’ve followed the chronicles of this site you know I’ve been a year getting the yard ready for grass.  Now it is planted, being watered and more seed is germinating daily.

The Scott’s 16″ Reel Mower

I did a lot of research and reading on the best mower for Bermuda Grass.  Then I went to Home Depot and bought the Scott’s mower anyway.  It took less than 5 minutes to assemble and I was quickly making my way back and forth cutting off the very tall first to spring up and grow grass.
