    See attached pic. I gave a bid to renovate this lawn - kill existing Zoysia grass, power rake, and power seed with Fescue. The owners did not accept my bid. Apparently, they got somebody cheaper or did it themselves. I think they did it themselves. Now that the grass is coming in, it's a little uneven. The front looks worse.

    Apparently for these folks, it was pretty hard.

    Looks like the homeowner figured he could have a couple cold ones while he renovated his lawn. I'd aproach him and see if he is willing to accept your bid now...
