Grass

We mowed the lawn (well, most of it) for the first time! It sure made a big difference in how it looks... it's so much more LAWN-ish now, not just individual grass seedlings. :)
This is one of the thickest, greenest spots. It's so soft and lushious, heaven on bare feet. :) I have no idea why, but we have some patches which are super lush and others which are thin and scraggly. It all gets watered evenly (I am a slave to the sprinkler), so it isn't that. We put down some organic fertilizer after we mowed so hopefully that will help even it out.

I'm no lawn expert, but the little I did learn from working in landscaping would lead me to suggest that the cause of some areas not doing as well could be due to a nitrogen deficiency. It's equally possible that I'm totaly wrong, but it may be worth looking into.

We put down some fertilizer, and it does seem to have helped with the uniformity of the color at least. But some areas I think the clay is just really heavy and the grass is having a hard time in those spots. It is getting better all the time tho!
