    Desperately needs weed control and fertilizer among other things, but I just don't feel like spending money on any of that for my own place. The occasional "cut" is all it's going to get from me.

    Nice yards there guys. You need to make up some color glossy brochures featuring them...that should get you lots of work, lol. My lawn is no showcase either...can't see it from the road anyway.

    LMAO! I know, that's another reason why I don't bother. Last year, I sprayed the perimeter of the front lawn with Turflon Ester just to see what would die. No surprise, it fried everything in its path, and it was mixed at the exact ratio the label recommends for treating weeds in turfgrass. Ended up with a solid dead strip around the lawn. :laugh:

    It's a case of "the shoe maker that has no shoes" except it's "the lawn care operator doesn't care".

    I used to be more laid back about keeping things up, but because i don't live in uninc like most of you guys, the village has already fined me $100+ just this year.

    I'm moving soon. Definitely a place with VERY limited rules
