The PG (porch grass) project

One of the things that I love to do is doing “small” projects together with my wife June. Our latest project is the extension of our porch and converting it into a small garden.

The original plan was to make this a concrete floor. I’m blissful that we changed it into a mini garden — It’s a lot cooler.

After the masonry works, it looked like this:

The next step is to get some garden soil and grass. We looked for a garden supply store within our area and we found Halina’s Garden.

I sent them a message in FB and SMS to inquire and they’re very responsive. We ended up getting the following:

  • 10 sacks of Bermuda grass (P120 / sack)
  • 6 sacks of garden soil (P90 / sack)

We originally ordered Bluegrass but we’re surprised that in our local jargon, Bluegrass is also defined as Bermuda grass. Oh well, it’s OK. It’s grass 🙂

We had to wait for a few days since they have to complete a minimum order of 20 sacks of grass before they order it from their supplier. We ordered it last Saturday and we picked it up the following Wednesday.

So, the work of replanting begins. My wife and I started around 4:30PM and we finished around 8PM – this could have been done half the time if our kids didn’t “help” 🙂

But we figured that this is the only way our kids will develop interests in gardening  so we welcomed the “help”. June and I just had to stretch our patience a little bit more… 😀

Picture this: Try replanting grass with toy trucks and dozers zooming around you… 🙂

The next morning, it looked like this:

It’s all worth it. It’s such a blessing for a view.

 

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
