Aaron found me some dirt to fill the low areas of the yard. Brought up 3 loaders full with his Dad's Kubota. So I hooked up the box blade and put Alice to work. Took less than an hour, but we enjoyed every minute of it.

Here's where I had him dump the first 2 loads. Wish I had some grass seed!

All done!

Looks like some good seat time! Alice did a nice job. Did you rake it by hand or was that just with the blade?

Grass seed expensive it seems, even in fall when stores should be closing out.  I found last month at Walmart pretty good selection left and fair prices, but this last week went back for more and not much left, just the high dollar stuff in really big bags. Still hard for me to spend $90 or so on a bag of seed that has no garuantee that it will even grow before being washed or eaten or blown away!  I like to seed a couple times to get the spots between that get missed because of the listed problems, gets covered eventually.

Fall is over seeding and reseeding time, but its late so check with Site 1, Southern States or whoever you have and ask for a discount. Grass seed is supposed to last a year or so, I'm still using out of 300 lbs I bought 5 years ago, and its germinating fine.

Only an hour? Should've had him dump it farther away... :D
Nice job. As for the seed, what's buried will be coming thru by spring. Might get a small bag and some straw.

Good job. With small piles it doesn't take very long to smooth them out.

I was trying to seed 1.5 acres that had been woods and was torn all to heck, and my son in law is a horticulturist and regional sales manager of Site 1, formerly John Deere Landscape, formerly Lesco, so he hooked me up with the deal. I have like 7 kinds of grass on the property, but it was cheap!
