Did you know that even with new construction homes you can go to your local county/city auditor's website to look up the property transfers? Kinda neat to see the purchase amounts of the houses in our neighborhood and on our street. Even for the same model house - the prices vary widely from one house to the next!
Landscaping thought - be mindful of your dryer vent. We had a hydrangea bush planted in front of the dryer vent (unknowingly) and watched it go from healthy, to withered, to healthy, and then back to withered - until we realized why - DUH! It's now been moved and is living well somewhere else in our yard!
Tomorrow the correction to the grade of our lawn on the side of our house is supposed to be done so the electrical box doesn't look like it's in a sink hole. I'll let you know how it goes.
I don't know if you've ever felt this way while waiting for your lawn to come in, but I can not tell you how bad I want to walk through nice, lush grass in my barefeet - and can't because my grass isn't so lush and there's not much to it!!! Patience is not my best quality! And this lawn growing is really trying my patience!
