Now you're talkin'!

GOD.

Flashforward to Neditate: Yeah, that would be nice. When I lived in Evergreen, it got up to 79° while it was 98° and above down in Denver.

But we can't all live up in them hills, can we?

Go ahead and enjoy it for us. Someday, I'd like to have a dream home in Rye or San Isabel.

Very nice landscaping job, McGowdog. But OUCH! Those blisters!
BTW, our landscaping was done by Mother Nature and A/C provided by her as well. All we have to do is open the windows

1500 square foot of lawn ain't too bad. Do you realize that rock and fabric cost more than the soil and rock? We're talking about a 1 time fee here.

I've got about 5000 square feet of road base, about 5000 sq ft of river rock with fabric and would like to get some indigenous grasses and ground cover for the rest.

I do wear gloves. But a sod cutter is a machine I hope I never have to use again. I had an existing dead lawn with sprinklers for it and I just didn't want to turn it over to xeriscaping. Maybe the rest of the 1.2 acres though. Every time I water my lawn, I think of one less sip for a tourist in Las Vegas or a resident north of San Berdino in that disgusting sprawl or those snowbirds in Phoenix. It's my water, I'll do what I want with it.

Besides, I have a retired neighbor with way too much money on his hands who's insulted me for the lack of yardwork that I've done in 8 years.

I'm really getting sick of hearing it from both ends, so to speak.
