    Well all the hard work has started to show. Here is one of the worst to first lawns I renovated. A local "LCO" advised the home owners to spray the lawn with Round-Up to kill the crabgrass because "there is nothing else that will kill it".

    Thankfully they saw my flyer and I cut in before any more damage was done by the other guy. Here is a photo taken on 10/10/02, just prior to aeravation.

    Here is a photo taken today, the most improved in the neighborhood. If you have any before/after photos please post'em. IF you look to the far right you'll notice that I just redid that yard yesterday. ;)

    Which photo's did you say were after and which are before?:D

    But really, I'm sure your customers are thrilled. The place looks a million percent better. Can you come over to my lawn and show me how you did that?

    OK! You are in NC! So I have a question for you....

    Crabgrass....Wiregrass....Common Bermuda....

    What are you referring to as Crabgrass?

    One person will say...can you kill that Crabgrass? The next will say wiregrass and the next will say Bermuda...all referring to the same plant.

    This is the after picture.

    As like Ray's, it was completely killed out and we started over. Let me see if I can find the before pics.

    This is the before picture. This was a borrowed camera and the quality is bad. But you can get the idea.
