Ah, yes. The soccer field (such as it was). It never really took hold, and didn't get a lot of use. It is presently barren dirt. We never re-seeded it after that first attempt, and the sprinklers are off. I should probably craigslist the seed spreader and lawnmower. 1poorlady is looking to convert that into another area for crops.

It wasn't going to be a "trophy lawn" (I like that term). It was utilitarian (kid practicing). But she got to the point (quickly) where the ball wouldn't stay in the grass area, so she stopped using it. The OP appears to have a spouse who wants a trophy lawn.
