Last weekend (Saturday) Dad and I (Jodi) got up at 7:30 am (Yes earlier than Kim & Mike) to take out the grass in the back yard. We started taking it out and then realized that we needed to remove the old sprinkler system and replace it in the Flower bed to with a drip irrigation system. After we went to Home Depot to get the stuff for the drip irrigation system. We came home and took out the old sprinklers and installed the drip irrigation system.
After we did that it was 1:30 pm and 85 degrees. It was too hot to continue, so we took a break. We started removing more grass around 4:30 pm and stopped at 6:30 pm (it got too dark).
Then on Monday, I had Jeffery Buys (the son of Jeff & Sherri Buys) come over and remove the remainder of the grass. (My back and legs hurt too much to finish). It took him about 1 1/2 hours to remove the rest of the grass.
That was our weekend project. We will probably put in a deck sometime in the future.
