This is going to be the calendar year for my DIY projects. Last fall was painting some rooms inside. Then pulling up some parquet and replacing it with laminate hardwoods.
Currently, I'm experimenting with laying down sod in the backyard in some major bare spots. First I had to lay from French drains to divert water where the rivers flowed. I've got a 20'x15' planted now using some garden gates to keep the dogs off it. If this works I'll slowly expand it out.
One question for the landscapers out there. My front yard gets some morning sun, but that's about it. Its pretty shady. Over the years I've had varying success growing grass. Usually moss takes over even though I lime it pretty well. If I were to kill the grass, disc it up, and sod it will the chance of moss lessen? Just wondering since the moss seems to hold off until there are some bare spots from the new grass not surviving.
I'll also try tackling the painting of my house this year. Probably be a slow process.
