Every year I swear to myself I won't fertilize my yard and then it happens. I have an extra bag and my lawn is screaming for it!! I wouldn't even give my own yard an estimate to be mowed, it's that bad. 45 mins of push mowing on a hill. So, do you fertilize your yard??

Mine's nice and green, mostly weed free, but is the last one to get cut every week....it's like the plumber with leaky pipes, you know..Every one thinks our lawns and landscapes should be perfect, but who has the time or energy???:confused: <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/3/3_4_14.gif' border=0></a>

I live right next to a nursey and the owner always walks his customers over to show them my back lawn. Best advertisement there is.

Yes, I fertilize.
In my opinion, if lawn care is a specialty of yours, you better have a nice yard. I always get compliments on my yard.

Why would you trust anyone else to fertilize your own lawn? or spend the money too?

what a site...I have my own small company and hire another company to fertilize my own yard. I started to do it myself after I installed the entire new yard it looked super until I ran into problems with Fungus and disease. Now I have one on the best local companies do it for me. OH WELL....What the neighbors must think!!!!! they charge me for materials only so it dont cost much.
