Since we see all of these professionals with stripes, lets see some homeowner's stripes. Here is my back yard...the house is new and the grass was planted in September of 2007. I have 2 golden retrievers and as you can see, it tough to keep a nice lawn as they kill the areas they pee on. This spring I want to do some landscaping and in the fall plan to plant some more grass seed and a couple moderatly sized oaks. Take a look and feel free to tear me a new one!
