I am such a silly sod. In my blog post entitled, "Killing time at an Airport on a Sunday: How I Spent my Saturday Working in the Yard," I noted how I made a flagstone pathway from my backyard patio to the side of my house where I store my garbage cans, so I could take out the trash without dirtying my feet on wet grass. As part of that project, I laid the flagstone and covered the adjacent grass with gardening soil to make the ground level with the flagstone instead of sinking the flagstone by digging.
At the end of that project, the side yard looked like this:

They removed the flagstone, dug out the area, replaced the flagstone, and cut sod to fill in around the flagstones. Now the side yard looks like:
Thanks to Cut Above Landscaping & Irrigation. They are great at jobs big and small, and this was indeed small for them, but a big deal for our family.
Landscaping is alive in the lab.
