The joys of a half-acre lot are many. Maintenance, for me, is actually kind of one of them.

The gardeners were kind enough to utterly obliterate the weeds on our seventy-five steps leading up to the upper patio, so Mark and I went out this weekend and bought six trays of dymondia. We put in four on Saturday, and I just put in the other two today.

We have thirteen steps left to complete, if we don't count the lower three steps that are not part of the main stairway. So, two more trays, and some work to determine how to fix the sprinklers up near the patio, as the ones on the top five steps aren't getting any water.

In theory, they will grow in nicely and fill in the spaces between the steps. They have nice long taproots and should help hold the soil in place so that the steps are less likely to come down (yay).

Now, I go clean up, for lo, I am a muddy mess. (:
