    Our total was 18 hours, at $250 per hour, that would have been $4500, plus travel and set up, probably would have been a total of $5000. Hmmmm……..$5000 versus $1800.....yup, I'll take that deal any day!

    The mulch will take some time to break down. Grass seed needs contact with the soil, so we plan on making rows of clear dirt between rows of mulch. The mulch will help keep erosion in check while the grass gets established.

    It's a wonder our faces didn't split all the way around, we've been grinning so big!

    Hacking on green briars is not fun! Watching the mulcher (from afar for safety) was downright delightful!
