Greeting from Elkhorn Creek Ranch near the epicenter of the Bakken Oil Formation!
For those of you not previously privy to this information, our yard for the last three years has looked like a construction zone. I have mowed weeds with great pride and complained relentlessly both under my breath and out loud to anyone who would listen about this mess that greeted visitors as they drove into our yard.
Pete's brother, Kevin, innocently commented last fall (after patiently listening to my complaining) that he worked for a landscaping company during his down time between finishing up his residency and sitting for his board exam after finishing medical school.....
Pete latched on to that information and began planning his 'irrigation' system for our little lawn. He had been working on designing it for several weeks using Orbit's online design program. The week before Kevin and Mary were due to arrive to help 'make over' this out of control mess, Pete announced at lunch, "I'm not sure if this is going to go down the Orbit Way OR the Cowboy Way". "Oh No"..... is all that came to my mind after his proclamation!
We were thrilled to have Kevin, Mary and Lindsay spend a week with us this past week working on this yard of ours. We were also thrilled to have Kevin's expertise and the entire family's help in resolving our 'lawn problem'. The first step, in ground sprinklers.
