Yesterday the landscapers finished the work we wanted done at the house. They finished the sprinkler system and laid sod in the back yard. I was pretty happy with how it all worked out. The house came with an allowance for appliances, but since we didn’t need a refrigerator, washer, or dryer, they gave us that credit toward landscaping in the back. The front rock or sod was also included with the house. I hoped that the allowance would be enough to be able to sod most of the back yard, enough to at least give the kids a place to play. But I wasn’t sure because we had also used part of allowance to get pedestals for our front-loading washer and dryer.
