One way to spend Easter weekend

Between church and family activities Heath spent his weekend doing this. Digging up 1500 sq. ft. of dead grass from our yard. By doing it himself we're saving several hundred dollars. I'm not so sure it's worth it!

First he rented a grass cutter and cut everything up so he could just shovel it out. Here it is all cut up.
Then he had to load it by the wheel barrel full into this trailer. That right there is FOUR tons of dirt and dead grass. He did every single bit of it himself. And thankfully his uncle volunteered to help him unload it at the dump.

And here's what's left. It will require 3 pallets of sod. A project for another weekend.
