I have a red combine....but I like green tractors for sure!

I actually don't use the roll bar. When working around trees you might as well just leave it down.

If I die....it must be my time anyway!

I am not big on manual labor!

Got me a new ride last week for my seeder!
That lawn looks a little thin better use it there.

Funny guy!

Actually....that is my lawn. You know how it goes.....take'n care of everybody else's lawn and don't get to take care of mine like I should! I don't even mow my own grass....if that isn't sad enough!

We went through a serious drought last year and I lost pretty large areas, so I sprayed gly and started over on my lawn. After I seeded it last fall we barely got any rain. Most of it came up, but is was really late.

Actually considering the conditions it went through... it looks pretty good, but I think that a good fert program will thicken it up great!

Rodney i was kiddin with ya, back to the over seeding question, make sure there isnt a thick thatch layer if there is the seed will hang in there in rot. You need to have good seed soil contact. I prefer to punch alot of holes with an aerator, broadcast the seed then slice in two directions. If its over 50% bare i will flail blade dethatch, slice seed and hydroseed.

I agree w/humble1. In CT. Aeration then slice seed diagonally in two directions. I charge $125.-$145./1,000 sq.ft.
