We jumped this project after finding this playset on super sale. At this point I decided to put down sod before the weekend of thunderstorms come. We hope the rain will give us a good
start rooting the sod. The front part was ready for sod, but we are waiting to sod the back and underneath parts. Underneath we want to replace the wood blocks (placed by the playset installers) leveling the playset with concrete pavers. In the back we are grading down so the down hill slope continues to be more subtle yet enough for decent drainage. Then I will grade down an L piece where the slide comes out for additional play area and roomier slide landing. As for the empty part in the front with the sod? I'm thinking plastic kiddie swimming pool for this incoming hot summer. This area has me excited about other backyard improvements!
I have a good sized bed of myrtle ground cover and there are oak and maple saplings growing in it. How do I get rid of them without digging up the whole bed? Is there any way to keep them from starting there in the first place? Help!!!
