All this rain........at least its good for slice seed jobs

Guys,

Did some May slice seeding for a few resi customers that had some previous summer die out. Not big on spring seeding, but it was obvious looking at these lawns that they needed some renovation.

Sliced them in a few weeks back and since then, have gotten a tremendous overabundance of rainfall. Not good for mowing, not good for spraying. Very good for seed jobs. Took a look at these jobs recently, and the rye is coming up QUITE well in the bare spots. Hope the KBG is to follow soon. Has been a very nice spring for seeding, if nothing else.

I missed May seeding in that I'm still cleaning up, but you're right,,,this has been a pleasantly wet Spring and I believe the drought of the past few years is over...
