October through December, 2010

The mild weather allowed us to continue landscaping efforts. Rather than “shoot” top soil onto the slope north of the house like we did two years ago, we drove a Bobcat up the slope to the right and dumped a total of 30 cubic yards down. Then we waited for the weather to cool off to hydroseed; we hope the seed will remain dormant until next Spring. The hydroseed mix includes some grasses that will sprout quickly and help hold the soil while the other grasses take root. We laid down branches horizontally to help slow down erosion in case there is a big rain.
