I roto tilled her a section , spread some hay for her to turn under and she gonna grow veggies for the wife.

I'll fence it off then I'm gonna clear the shrubs next door and plant cantaloupe outside the fenced area and let them take over the lot and set up sprinklers so she just has to turn on the spicket on the back deck and water everything plus all the new grass I got planted just before the rain got here and give it all a good soak at once everyday.

Thanks for the help with the landscaping Dave.

Awesome! Veggie gardens are wonderful.

Hey, for my veggie garden I use these $15 "manual timer" things. You can set them for [however much] time, turn the water on, and after that amount of time they shut off. Very very useful if you're scatterbrained (like me) or there's a possibility you might have something urgent you suddenly need to do, and can't get back out there to turn the sprinkler off.

I got mine at a farm/feed store, but they're probably at hardware stores too.

I was thinking the same thing.

I planted about 1000 sf of Bermuda seed to and it needs watered every day for like 6 weeks to really take and just got back from Ace in town and was looking at them.

I've got a bunch of Y's and hose with ends missing so I'm gonna lay out a path and have a s[rikler in every spot that needs water and get it to run at like 6 Am so it has time to soak into the ground before the sun gets it but not stay damp so long in the dark it gets molds.

Next I am gonna round up the lot line as close to the lake as I can get then smooth that up when its all cleared of weeds and grow grass right to the edge of the lake since this is a series of valleys that lets the street water from the frog chokers and fans the water out before it hits the lake which is good for the grass abut mostly stops everything from washing away.

I get a long with the guy he asked me when I was building my house if I would design his in the same manner so I've been slowly letting my grass migrate into the spots that won't get torn up during construction when he retires.

Plus it keeps the snakes out of the yard if I can mow it LOL.

I had to stop and think but it was enough seed to do 10,000 sf of new lawn but I prefer to use loads of seeds so it grows thick.
