The spring rain and extra CO2 helped the lawn grass get ahead of me. Mexican vendor with machinery was working on a neighbor's yard so I got him to spruce up our curb appeal. 

$50 well spent since our mower would have choked out.

Now to get the departing tenants to take their "raised garden" boxes and enclosed earth.

 Job may seem a little less daunting.

I offered my truck to haul it all, but NOT for me to shovel dirt.
