Last summer, the elevated part of our lawn began to die off, revealing unfortunate sandy soil and, eventually, hundreds of ant hills moved in. Before long, the kids couldn't even play up there, and as luck would have it, that was where we had placed their play-set.
This Spring, we decided to prioritize fixing the lawn and now that it's really heating up, we are enjoying more and more evenings out on the grass, kicking around the soccer ball and swinging away. Until the mosquitoes drive us back inside, of course.
One problem at a time.
