    Hi all. Ive been away from the forums for a while for differrnt reasons. My question is have of you noticed that if a lawn gets off a reg. feed that it just tends to look like total crap? I have a lawn that a customer just got at the end of the season last year and did not keep the fert company for this year. The lawn realy looks bad this year. the neibors looks good on both sides. I just think the lawns realy get "hooked on the stuff. What do you think?

    A lawn that has been fertilized properly will get through a year without it........it will look bad at the end of the year but nowhere near as bad as a truegreen chemical lawn or a scotts lawn with a diet of pure nitrogen.... :p ..............

    Hehe...

    Lawns around here have been on a water diet for the past 3 seasons.
    Now suddenly along come these hurricanes that change our weather pattern.
    Not a drop of rain for the entire month of September.

    But the lawns looked like shriveled up crack hoes after the first 5 or 6 days.
