Trailer turf

For those of you wishing to grow turf in your trailer, the corner where the jack is located appears to be good.
A fair seed spill towards early october along with some dirt, a leaf cover and the right mix of sun light helps as well.

You might want to water it a bit. You might onto the next big thing in landscaping. A portable sod growing outfit.

In the voice of the guiness commercials "Brilliant."

On a landscape trailer, don't forget between the angle iron rail posts and the trailer frame. I've had saplings start there.

I prefer the floor of the truck myself. The corner by the parking brake grows the best. Ever wonder why it'll grow on the trailer but not that dead patch on the lawn?

I prefer the old work gloves in the back of my truck.

i remember when i was a kid my father had a ranchero truck ( like an el camino).
He had about 3-4 bags of rye in the back that got rained on and broke open. They germinated and he had almost a whole bed solid with rye.

He would not let me or my brothers touch the back of the truck... he would park it in front of one of his convenience stores and prople would come in and comment on it... he called it his portable tee box ( for golf)
