You sank my Battleship!

Well, the yard is now plotted out in a grid, much like a big ole lead infested game of Battleship. They are taking more detailed samples because the whole yard can't have 400 times the safe level of lead, can it? The latest idea is that to save on costs, they will have the lead people oversee landscaping (including installing a sprinkler system) instead of digging out the existing soil and replacing it. Apparently, this will cost about 1/3 of what the lowest bid for removal was. It's still not a go, and nothing will happen until spring, but it is kind of an exciting prospect. And, just so you all know and can hold me to it, I am never again buying an older home without a full lead report.
