Discovered this site on the net while roaming. Might be cool to see some of Lawnsite members pictures on there to show the rest of the world? What do you rate?

Mine sucks. I won't even have to mow it this year due to the drought. What I did mow off this spring was old growth from other years. OK I just bought my 5.5 acres in the winter, and have not planted any grass yet. Only wind break trees. I decided that my water would go for them this year. So things are pretty brown around here.

Cool site! Some of those pics must be put up there as a joke! Man! One of you guys need to post a pic and see if you can get a high rating and tell us what you got!

Mine is a show piece. It really looks great. My wife comments about twice a week as to how great it looks. People slow down and look it the lawn when they pass by sometimes. My neighbors always comment about how great it looks, and ask for tips. I installed the irrigation and landscape myself, but one of my crews maintain it through the summer. There are some pictures on my website from last year, the annuals are different this year as well as a new concrete drive and walkway.

I have been looking and rating for about 15-20 minutes now and have not seen yours on that sight yet Ray.. But I did see a familiar photo that Vibe Ray posted a little while back on LawnSite.. Is that your lawn Vibe or a clients? I gave it a 10 ;)

TSG, No that's a customer's lawn. I just put it up there to see what it'll get 4 the fun of it! Thanx 4 the 10 :) My lawn looks alright, but nothing to brag about.

Here is a view of my front side lawn, I just submitted it.

That's how I got into this business. I brought our house about 10 years ago. It is our first home, and we take pride in our home. Well to make a long story short. We rentovated and control the weeds. People started asking me to do the same to thier lawns. That's how it all got started for me. Will post pictures this coming week.

07-17-2002, 10:26 AM
I put on some of mine. You will know them by the nice greeness of the grass and the awesome stripes! My yard seems to be bigger than anyone elses on that site too... I have two acres to stripe and show off! Yea! Always double cut the front lawn to keep in the nice stripes. Same two directions, I don't worry about rutting really. It is not a problem, it still looks better than any in town so we're all happy. Cool site... but I wish some folks didn't put on pictures that are so huge, it's harder to look at and takes forever to load. Please make them 640x480 or smaller for everyone's convenience.

I browsed the site and voted for them.... I was pretty close to the norm on most of the lawns, but there were a few that I just could not understand the high average rating that they got.

It also seems that they don't appreciate some good stripes on that site.

I do not have irrigation, and so untill I do, my yard will get mowed when it absolutely needs it. No fert, no weed control, I ripped out all the Lugustrums I had to trim. I hate my yard. But around here to have a nice Fescue lawn you have to have irrigation. So until then I say fooie on my lawn.

11-05-2002, 07:34 PM
Nice yard Pilot. You take that picture from the Chopper?

11-05-2002, 07:43 PM
My lawn is rather nice I think. I only apply fertilizer twice a year and it looks like Ray's but it's a different blend so it is a darker shade green. The stripes really stand out on my lawn. I like to put the diamonds on the front yard and just regular stripes up and down in the back. I wish I had a digital camera to show some of you guys my lawns and my yard. Hopefully for Christmas I will be getting one. :D

Here's my front lawn. Either camera suck or I just don't know how to take pictures!


11-06-2002, 02:18 PM
Here, this is a little improvement.

11-06-2002, 05:52 PM
walker talker,

Your lawn looks like artificial turf, nice and flat; and even coloration, nice work.

11-06-2002, 07:25 PM
This is to Homer. I took this picture from the top of my neighbors house while he was at work. And he post on this, I am sorry.

Matt...nice pics and great work !!!

Well, for some of the northerners on this site, you have probably begun putting your equipment to bed for winter. Here are some pics of my lawn from this past weekend. Last stripes of the season..:(
