We had two projects going
this past weekend
On Friday 22 pallets of grass
They were placed all
around the house
We have coastal grass that
covers most of our 3 acres
but we wanted Floratam
St. Augustine grass around the house
Have you heard of Floratam????
It was developed by
Texas A & M and the University of Florida
It's a type of St. Augustine
that is adapted for warm humid
It is very hardy and drought resistant
I don't know about you but I have
fond memories as a kid of going barefoot
in our lush St. Augustine grass
It's just great to wiggle your toes in!!
This paint is very thick so I kept
some water on hand to add as needed
I decided the old oak table
and chairs needed a new look!!!
It took me most of the afternoon
to paint them
but I found the AS Paint
very easy to work with.
Meanwhile the grass
was going in nicely........
|I love the way it frames my flowerbeds|
|Back on the porch things were|
looking good too!!!!
Once the grass was in it
was time to start watering it
I let the newly painted table
and chairs dry overnight and
the next day I used sandpaper
to smooth out the finish
I was told at the store
not to use the AS wax on this piece
because it's an outdoor porch
and will be exposed to the Texas heat
Good to know!!!!
I think both our projects
turned out very nice
Take a look......
|Love the way it brightens up the porch|
|Love, love, love my grass!|
Doesn't it just complete the house
Two projects completed!!
but there's always more to do......
Next project..... add pave stone
walk ways in the front and back.....
Until the next project
