There has been a lot of change in 1 week (actually lesser), more green and the patch is beginning to look like a lawn (in the making).
I was skeptical about the germination rates of the eco-lawn expressed by people who had used it before. So far so good....I think. Guru is still skeptical and the bald spots in the middle concern him.
We have not had any issues with birds eating the seeds, but in the last few days we have seen the squirrels run across the lawn and sometimes digging. I wonder why....digging for grubs? But it a newly tilled and cleaned area with almost 4 inches of fresh compost. And they have the rest of the yard with all the grubs and stuff to dig to their hearts content.
