I've been working on a property for the last two years trying to get grass to grow in their backyard. I have everything I can think of and nothing has worked. I have tried sod, and several different types of grass seed. The lot is shaded but not enough to prevent light from getting through (i.e. the problem doesn't have to do with the amount of light). The homeowner's had a soil test done three years ago and they told me it came back ok. I recommended letting me do a soil test, but they refused "Nothing has changed in three years Steve, the soil is fine". We did get grass to grow but it is very thin. Re-seeded it twice and no improvement. He watered as instructed. No grubs or insects. But anyway, I was there today trimming the shrubs and I took some pictures.. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
