No actually they don't use lawn master. They use trugreen chemlawn. And have been for years. We kept tryn to do my lawn when we got all that rain so it was damaged. And I didn't have time to prep it before then hydroseeder came. I pulled up to the house to fix and rake the lawn for 3rd time and the hydroseeder was leavn so it didn't work out well.

This is what happen...

Did use all new fresh clean loam for top 3 inches. Seeded in middle of summer. Fresh raked dirt exposed to long to rain and sun. Compaction from rain. And washout from rain. The hydroseed took well under the trees where there wasn't any washout. All the seed and fert I put down got washed away and that was a lot. All the grading got destroyed before seeding was done. Over $12k has been dumped in this property and easily $2K has been ruin or used for fixing issues across the board,

Please...for the love of God, please, PLEASE start using spell check and some periods so your responses aren't one big run-on sentence, I can't read half of the things that you say. I'm sure there are a few other people here that agree with me.
