Working in the garden


Two weeks ago a gardener of Nong Chang, Uthai Thani, lay our grass. It’s starting to look really nice.

Since you have to water the grass almost all day the first 5 days, my husband and I have been working on the other side of the garden. It was really hot for us to work in the heat, but it’s starting to look like our design plan.


You might wonder why we do this ourselves instead of paying somebody to do it. That’s because I’m messuring everything exactly like on our plan and I’ve been using a rope and plumb rule to make sure everyting is level straight and exactly like we want it. Thais don’t do that all the time. Most of the time they’ll do whatever looks good. That’s fine because it works for them, but it doesn’t for me.


It’s too hot to work outside, but we’re going to do it anyway! It won’t be like we pictured it if we don’t do it ourselves.
