When I finally buy my own house, the neighbors will hate me. My front yard will be restored short grass prairie with a creeping bent grass putting green right in the middle of it. The putting green will be raised up a bit with stone retaining wall.

Have your laugh and I'll post pics when I actually do it.

Ahh summer. Gotta love the grass and the informal neighborhood lawn competitions.

Here's our lawn back from 2005. I'm amazed at how much that autumn blaze maple has grown in three years time. Please excuse the image resolution, it was taken with our video camera.

solbes - I have a maple about that size that was planted this spring. Do you have a picture of yours now you could post so I can get an idea of what it looks like in 3 yrs?

I don't currently have any recent pics to post. The tree was in the ground for a year and half at that point. Not a whole lot of growth the first two years. Good growth the third year and great growth (2.5 - 3 feet?) last year as the roots were firmly established.

If I get some time I'll take a new shot of the yard and post it.

jwhjr,

You asked for a recent picture of the autumn blaze maple. Here's a picture I took tonight after mowing. A little hard to see in the pictures, but it has grown 5-6 feet in 3 years.

Here's my lawn. Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to resize the pictures. If someone else knows how to make them larger, feel free.

    • She cant stand Needs a chair to sit on Clint happens to have a nice one.  You might be too old to get this then but don't blame your lack of comprehension on anything but yourself. Maybe your heart meds need tweaking or alzheimers is kicking in?
    • most reports in this area very poor way to much water  
    • Lone wolf but they are expensive. Muddy brand is not bad!
    • I bought the work shop and like it, It dose take a little practice from not pushing down to hard on the knife wihci allows it to drop below the guide, pluse the arching of the tips of knives can be challenging. I know theres an tension adjuster but it only adjust so much, go use kid gloves it seems. but i do like it
    • I'm up on it.  But bring on the translator.  I don't speak stoner.
    • Try to keep up with the conversation. If you need a translator let me know and I can try to round one up.
    • My WorkSharp arrived last week and I have been very impressed with how quick and easy it is to use and how nice it is to once again have kitchen knives that can cut 1/16-1/8 inch tomato slices with ease.
    • I actually wanted Ted but I considered him Lying Ted because of his agreement to support the nomination and he didn't until now.  Switching things around I would be voting Trump with a D behind his name then.  You are the crowd-follower who would be voting for any candidate with the L behind his name including Hillary.   Glad we agree you are supporting Hillary and will own everything she does if she wins.
    • Gary Johnson is not the solution to any of those issues has he has zero chance of winning.  Get your tin foil hat ready for the nuclear holocaust.  By the way who said spending and the deficit isn't on the list as I said I just named a few?  So as usual in your elitist way of thinking you are wrong again.
    • All I know is that the local gun shop was packed today and I was told that I would probably have to wait until after the election to have any chance of finding what I'm looking for. Sheesh people........haven't you already buried enough guns in the backyard over the last 8 years?
