New Grass

The grass on the south side of the house has been slowing dying over the past couple of years. It doesn’t get a lot of sun once the trees on the west side get their leaves. Maybe the sun it’s getting now will help it grow. And its under two evergreen trees. I knew grass seed would never stay put on the slope. One rain and it would all be a pile at the bottom. A friend had good luck with a grass mat like this and suggested I try it.
So I spent about an hour after work today digging out the big clumps that were still there so I could loosen the dirt and level it out. Once that was done I just wet it, put the mat down, and watered again.
If this works, I’m going to buy another one for more of the sad-looking area around it.
