This hole, dug by the gas company in November, was finally filled in yesterday (it was five feet deep):

It is from a new drain line we had installed all the way around the house in the same month. The hole was about 2-3' from the sidewalk, so we're very glad they finally filled it in.

I was doing some edging the other day, and I joked that I should build a retaining wall along the sides of the sidewalk. My yard has so much dirt in it.

Look at how high the dirt is!

That said, my yard is in primo shape right now:

Nice lawn.  Who is your head greenskeeper?  And I hope when you or your daughter practiced chipping and pitching no balls went in that hole.  The city should have put a noodle in there!

My front lawn.  St Augustine looks nice but honestly...I miss living where I could have a bermuda yard.

My lawn; get off my lawn.  And the view from the lawn you have to get off of.  Very steep... a bitch to mow.  Can't really chip or pitch there but, on occasion, I set up a croquet game.

Nice, @RickK. What's that little valley just into your yard?

Your garage would make me nervous. Mostly for my wife… I'd be fine. 🙂

Thanks.  The valley is a drain.  Since we don't have curbs and gutters we have this depression in all the yards.  It runs to the lowest point on the block where there is a drain that moves water to the lake.  

My garage is actually not as tight as it looks.  The garage door opening is 18 feet wide.  I cannot fit my truck into the garage.  Roof of truck will clear the door but depth of garage is a problem.  The garage door comes down on my tailgate.  When I come in, I fold my mirrors in and get close to the post on the right.  My wife actually has plenty of room to come in and out of garage.  I told her to use the single car garage on far right but she didn't want to.  So, I park my golf cart in there.

Beautiful lawn.  Nothing nicer than a great looking yard fronting your home.  

Since we don't have curbs, I get real picky (and upset with them) if someone parks on my grass.  I like that high grass edge along the street look.
