    I only use Scotts Turfbuilder and overseed with rye in November. I also use a coreplug type aerator about 3 times per year because of clay soil.

    Looks better than my lawn in Galveston, TX! All you need to do now is plant some cold-hardy palms and other trees like southern magnolias that hold onto their leaves year-round.

    It looks like you're doing alot better than your neighbor across the street. It looks as if they have some SERIOUS issues. Can't tell from the distance (without seeing it right up close), but it looks like a bad case of pythium blight or brown patch, or something.

    Thank's for the compliment's. I just bought this house last spring and had to replace the lawn and all the landscaping. All it had was weeds and cheap bushes in front of house. I dug it all up and replaced with my design. I have low voltage lighting all the way around the house that really makes the house stand out at night. I'm having a friend thats in photography come and take some pictures at night that i will post later. I had to sell my mowing equipment this fall because of back injury but I still love working outdoors. Thinking about going back to school at 47 to get degree in horticulture. Any sugestions. Would like to have my own landscape crew in near future and stay in this business somehow.
