Project Evergreen

Kinda sad that I'm done with this lawn. The Reservist who owns this property just got back from his 1.5 year deployment.

Wish I had some before photos of the place. It looked rough. I've made sure to mow higher and have also put it on a fertilizer and weed control program. Really what the lawn needs though is a double aeration, top-dressed and aerated again to really bring the lawn back into good over-all health.

But, I got the weeds under control and the over-all health back in order. The owner stated when he got back that it looked better than it ever had. I ended up getting a thank you note and a 100 dollar bill. I appreciated it, but it wasn't needed as doing the work for a soldier was enough gratification for me.

Basically I took care of the lawn and landscape including weeding the small beds and edging the sidewalk and curbs.

I'm going to miss that long curved stripe more than anything.
