    I'm gonna wait til my rye and fescue pops up before I take any. I want mine to be green just like yours Papa Kirby.

    You got a nice looking place and you have my applause for maintaining it as well as you do.................just don't know when you find the time!

    Maybe so, Homer. Here's a pic of ours ... and we rent! But we work on it ourselves.

    We just got our landlady to have it painted. The white is now a blue and the bricks have become a white/offwhite trim. Looks good, believe it or not! (I didn't think it would.)

    We'll be redoing the flower bed sometime and turning it into a shrub bed, firepower nandinas and gardenias.

    Well it's certainly not green. But when you drag home every weed seed that your customers have and drop them all over your yard this is what you get. Actually the only "weed" I have is crabgrass but it is proving to be very hard to get rid of. And that's why the grass isn't green.

    And here's a shot from the other way. That's my shop on the right hand side of the house. It's accessable from the rear via a 6 foot double door.

    Richard, if you are dragging weed seeds from your customers home to yours, that means you are also carring them from customer-to-customer. Try blowing your deck off at each job site, therefore you leave the weed seeds from that lawn there, and you don't spread them into all of your lawns.

    As for the crabgrass, that is the easist weed to control. This Feb get Dimension from Lesco, look at the transition area's coastal plan, do split applications in Feb and April, hit any other crabgrass with MSMA early and Drive late summer, control is simple using that plan. As you can see my lawn has not a single blade of crabgrass with Dimension only, I did not need MSMA or Drive this year.

    Picture taken in August 2001. It was rather dry here at the time; lawn stayed decently green considering the weather.
