    That rain was a blessing to Central Texas. The couple days of cool weather also. We'll see their calling for more next Saturday and Sunday and slight chance through late week. We finially got to cut ours or the first time on the highest setting. I posted some more pics in my thread you can check out didn't want to high jack the thread. But ups on the rain we collected all we could for the vegetables.

    Old car in area. This is Walgreen mowing company that operates in Austin and other areas in Texas. After they left there was all kind of trash within eye site of the truck. Our HOA has been complaining for months about the looks, they just don't care. A bunch of dead buches and trees, they don't do irrigation.:dizzy:

    Some end of summer color, this is a low water set of plants. You have to search around for color after hot summer .

    It is time to take up the welcome mat. I smelled the mouse stench a few days ago but this morning i couldn't take it any more. I followed the big flies that were trying to get in thru the ventilation screens. You can see the size of bait houses i had put out:dizzy: I had put out some of the green blocks in soup cans, guess he couldn't resist. And i was worried about squirrels. :hammerhead:

    This is a low bidder irritation install. Tried to hold it to $600. It ended up taking 4 of us 4 hours. Not pretty but it will do the job.

    Is there a trace of actual grass in any of the Horseherb?

    Absolutely no sign of grass and none is needed the weed looks nice and stands the heat and no disease:laugh: I spread some seed and we got rain today so who knows what will result. The irrigation is mainly for new sod in back and to keep trees and shrubs from dying.
