A quick update on our lawn. It's been a month and a half since we installed it. We watered it diligently for 2 weeks to make sure the grass take root. We finally bought a manual push lawnmower after 4 weeks to give the grass a haircut. The mower is a little hard to push due to the self sharpening blades, but it's done a pretty good job so far. The mower we ended with was the Gilmour RM30 20-Inch Reel Mower with Grass Catcher. There was a really detailed and excellent review of how this mower compared to all the other ones on Amazon that sold me on this particular mower.
|There were surprisingly few used mowers for sale on Craigslist so I ordered one from Amazon and saved $50 in shipping and promotion discount. Not a bad deal.|
|A comparison of pre and post mowed grass. It really does look like the grass was getting a haircut.|
|Justin had to mow the grass twice to get it to the desired length.|
|Another go at it to trim down the grass.|
