Ice Rink and the Giant Balls of Plastic
So yesterday was clean up the carnage day. I would have liked to use the liner again for at least another year but it was a total loss, too many mole holes. People think that leaving plastic on the yard over winter kills the grass. It does not. The grass under the liner actually greens up faster than the rest of the lawn. If you leave the boards on the lawn too long you will get some grass kill but not enough to be able to see it a few weeks later. This year we did have some actually damage though. Mole tunnels. The paved them under the boards and they were very busy. Ice rink put away is the only think I really don't like about backyard rinks. The boards are no big deal but man handling that ginormous piece of plastic that gets kind of slimy over the winter is not so much fun. So this year I decided the kiddo was big enough to do it solo! And he did. He is 80% done. Observe and admire. On other blogs you get lovely tulips and daffodils. At Mutiny in the Garden you get a yard full of giant plastic balls!
Oh well, at least the grass is getting green.
