Good pictures and nice lawn...
I watered the seed in good last night and with the great mid 80's weather were getting this should be up in a week or two.
Actually, I took the plugs from an area I landscaped and had to add 6" of topsoil there so thats why soil is one consistant color, but did compost a few years back and I mulch the clippings.
I think your seeing what I can't find either though, no real thatch?
