New Landscaping !! ......


Yes, that's right.  We have a new landscape plan.


The poopie tank went out in February.  After an eternity of smelly, sludgey stuff in the back yard (INSIDE the dog fence, of course), the poopie contractor finally came this morning with his little buddies to fix it.
UPDATE: 3:15 pm  The hole in the picture above in the backyard is as LEAST as BIG as the hole in the front yard. . . . . .  and it doesn't smell too good.  They promised me they would be finished by the end of the day.  Good thing the sun is staying up longer!


It's okay.  It was bound to happen.  The old system was 35 years old.



But they have to re-route the old drain line from the back around to the front.  At least I won't have to cut the grass in that area for a while !! 

Oh, the joys of living in the country!!

Blessings, Cathi

Last year we had to have the pipes running from the house to the street replaced and did a similar relandscaping. Not fun or cheap.

I feel for you. Spread lime on the yard. It helps. and hold your nose.
