View Full Version : Pics of my grass and truck

03-08-2004, 04:29 AM
So i was home this weekend from school an got around to doing some work. Had my camera in the car and took some pictures. Didn't do much to the yard this fall/winter except apply a pre-emergent this weekend and lay down some rye last fall. But it turns out pretty good, and still holing up quite well with the hot temps we've had lately in Dallas.

Pics of the truck are in there too, but its kinda dirty.

another one.............. this area was all weeds last summer, so the rye shoul have killed off the wees an now I just nee to concentrate on those spots this spring

part of the parkway. This area is pretty lush. The color difference in the stripes really doesnt show up with this camera, but it was pretty impressive for a 21.

I did that after I accomplished everything that needed to be done that day. SO all clean now.

Lawn looks real nice and bright green compared to the neighbors in the pictures. I'd put a huge sign in front saying "THIS LAWN CARED FOR BY EAGLE" and it should get some attention. If I drove by, I'd say, wow, how come that guy's lawn is so green?

Looks good, I'm jealous I can't start mowing yet, nothings growing, but it's coming soon!

Ha, yeah it really helps business. The nursery knows its my lawn, and everyone on the block knows that I take care of it. Someone called me last night from a flier and asked, Arent you the kid that has the nice lawn".

So i guess it does help. Plus it helps make the house look better. 20% of the homes value should be the landscape so I'm on my way. My dad and I are putting in an irrigation system soon and redoing all the landscapign. Taking out all those hideous boxwoods, ick!. And probably getting one more Live Oak to go on the west-side of the house. Although that tree that mature will cost about 5k. We'll see.

what kind of mower was that done with?

03-11-2004, 03:51 PM
looks like a 21"

03-11-2004, 11:53 PM
thats what I thought, a 21" mower. Why have a $30,000 truck and a $200 mower? Can't figure it out

03-20-2004, 01:44 PM
Gotta agree......You need larger mowers, FAT lines make the yards look excelent. The 21" looks like a homeowner cut it;) Get a commercial mower ( at least 42" ) and make a big difference. Your lawn does look clean, and better than neighbors :D

Good eyes I always look for green grass even in the winter and didn't notice it.

With a Toro 21" Suzuki 5.5 2 cycle. The ones they stopped making. I've got 3 of em, getting a 36" later this summer when stuff picks up. Don't have many yards that a 36 would fit into the backyard though. I can knock on residentials in no-time with these mowers though and I'm doing just fine.:-D

Heh, and its a $42,000 truck:-D

I see you never cut the crepes back, and I also saw where you neglected some weeds along the curb.

03-27-2004, 10:44 AM
Blah blah blah... Never EVER do that to crepe murtles. You know how ugly that make the seed heads look after a few seasons. You can "top" shrubs and bushes like that, but you never want to do anything drastic like that to a tree. I just prune em down in the spring/fall.
