    You should have looked at it before moving the piles.

    Just my two cents.

    oh yeah. spent about an hour or so moving leaves

    i bet it would! haha I think most of those leaves are from a few of your jobs
    oh i looked at it. then shook my head. then just did it. sometimes your the skid steer with a flat tire and sometimes your the stubborn landscaper

    I'd venture to say most of those leaves are from 3 properties. Wowzers.

    I prepped the soil by power raking off old and dead growth, raked out all of the loose topsoil (except one small area in the front that I added topsoil to) and this one needed aerated so I did that too. Overseeded with Pennstate mix (rye, fescue, bluegrass), starter fertilizer and top dressed with mushroom manure. germination started in 2-3 weeks and it took about 5-6 weeks for it to look like this. there are a few bare spots near the house that I will reseed in the spring

    Results look good. With the seed blend do u know what percentage of each blend it is? With starter fert did you use triple 19 or triple 12?
