And so, the regrading and reseeding of the backyard is complete. (Thanks to Michael W. for the pics.) Apparently it has been raining nearly every day in Chapel Hill since this was completed (July 23rd). This can be a good thing (no need to rely on residents to have to remember to water) or a bad thing (raining so much that the seed washes away). Hopefully, the washing away will be deterred by the layer of straw on top of the ground. In the category of “one thing gets fixed, another thing gets broken” is the chain link fence on the SPE parking lot side of the property. It had been taken down to be used as an access point during the demolition, and then again during the regrading and is now, essentially, unusable in its current state.
