It's important we do not disturb the wonderful original state of the field. Most of the field in it's natural state has wonderful grasses and flowers, but it needs good footwear to walk on. To be livable the house needed to have some sort of lawn. Something to walk and play on in bare feet. In summertime we live outside.
|December 2009. Rubble.|
Green lawns are not considered correct in some places because of the water use. Here, in this dry landscape we have huge rivers running through. With very small demand on their use and very low populations. While there is increasing agricultural demand in our area it will be managed well I believe.
Timing was important to establish a lawn in the rubble. It had to be done following the heat and dryness of February and before the winter. We hired a guy with vast expertise who leveled the ground with his tractor and leveling bar. Next came about 40 cubic meters of topsoil. Again carefully spread.
