Pics of the Yards

Mine has the golf green the other is my neighbors - Both are Barefoot Yards and Organic. The stripes are done with a Billy Goat lawn vac (lots of leafs today) My yard was killed (again) this Aug and reseeded. Lots of tea and compost top dressings about 1000 pounds on 1500 sq ft. My neighbors was just power seeded again (also last year). We do not irregate in summer, but I watered every hour (5 mins - keep that seed moist) during day in month of Sept and each evening since (10 mis). Both are very mycorrhizael.

My competition

This lawn was done 4 weeks ago - obviously lack of water - LOL. I do believe those are wild onions and not even fescue - He He. I guess this guy who lives 5 doors down should have gone Barefoot. The LCO that did this lawn must have used really bad seed cause I have seen a couple other jobs they did who watered and it is just not good. You get what you pay for. I love my competetion. BTW I used Pennington Smart Seed on my front. in the close up you can see the thin blades - those are them (4 weeks old) I wanted it thicker so I over seeded 15 pounds on 1500 sq ft and top dressed with about 500 lbs of compost 1/16 inch (about). It is thick! Love it!

Specs

First seed last week of Aug. I used about 8 pounds per 1000. That is it on the back - but on the front I went back and overcast 15 pounds of Pennington Smart Seed with MYCO on 1500 sq ft to thicken in up and boy is is thick and thicker everyday - then I top dressed again about 500 lbs - 1/16 inch (about). When those baby blades get going and put out 15 to 20 per seed and get a winter under them it will be really awesome.
I'm seriously considering (for sure going to) doing all jobs with the Smart Seed. It is awesome and I spent almost 10K on seed this fall. I should be able to use a little less seed but it cost more so I would have used about 15K in Smart Seed - but results and word of mouth is worth 5K to me. Oh and all TALL Fescue
