    Last Year ,while working across the street , I see what was once a beautiful lawn , now ruined . I go over to offer some free advice to the home owner . He applied crabgrass killer in July , toasting the lawn .
    We renovated it in Sept and it was back to beauty again . He was a happy camper .
    This year he refused my Fert Program " Don't need it "
    Called Later for a weed spray , Which we did . He was happy again
    He called 4 weeks ago said lawn has dead brown spots , he irrigates , we went over for an inspection , melting out , recommened fungicide spray , which he said to do .

    Spent 30 min rigging up and drive over there , upon arriving he said "DON'T YOU SPRAY MY YARD ". Why ?
    " I called xxx landscaping largest in area and they said not to do it" ! I said did they come out and look at it ? He said no !
    I said , well if want to let them screw up your lawn go ahead !
    As you can see these two { home owner & other clowns are real good }

  4. Boy that look purrrrdy....

    Can I use that pic to advertise with? I'll put it on the front of my brochure.

    I feel for you, you're going to stare at that lawn every time you go past it. Don't shake your head when there is no grass left.

  6. I was being sarcastic.

    I hate it when you try your dambedest and people still screw your work up.
