I cannot believe the changes that have occurred over the past 2 months in my backyard. I mentioned our big backyard renovation here and I am still utterly shocked to see the transformation that is nearly complete. If I could pinpoint one element of the backyard that has really made a huge difference would be the sod that was installed just last Friday. We are having to water 4 times a day, 60 minutes each time (anyone want to make a donation to my water bill?!) to get the sod to take in the 90+ degree Colorado heat but it will all be worth it when Rocco is running his heart out. All I am waiting for now is our patio furniture to show up in the mail and a BBQ with friends and family.
