Heavy nitrogen in spring always causes early burnout in summer. Never fails. Grows like crazy today, no rain for two days, dead.

But they're licensed, so they obviously know what they're doing.

How about a little WEED CONTROL, folks?
Your lawn doesn't need THAT much friggin FERTILIZER. I can watch it grow while I'm standing there!



Deep breath...


OK. I'm good now.
I totally agree, I want to kill the man that decided grass was the thing to plant.

I have to disagree. I feel like I owe the fert guy a bj. I have an account at 100/cut with no limit, and instructions to cut it as often as needed. Last year was every other day. Should be that again this year, but the rain is messing with me. I love the fert guy.

Meh. Nine, ten O'clock?
Depends on when I get up and how long it takes to get the dogs out and fed and all that crap.

Too early in the season for a set schedule, but I rarely start before 9 and I won't start before 8.

I'm still trying to break the "up til 3am" winter routine so I can get up earlier!
