    Two pics in my neighborhood. The first brain surgeon wanted to kill the weeds at his duplex. Of course Round-Up kills weeds doesn't it?

    Number two is a homeowner that decided to fertilize his lawn. I think he thought he was using a broadcast spreader... strike that I really don't know what he was thinking.

    I got a great laugh out of this one. Look Good.

    last year a lady called my office and had done that same thing. they had used roundup to kill weeds and in turn wiped out the whole lawn. they had a wedding planned for the next week and wanted to know what to do...I laughed so hard when I saw the place she started to cry. sooooo 500 bucks later and 5 gallons of tuckahoe # 6 turf paint she had the best looking lawn ever. I even touched up a few spots the morning of the wedding....nearly got hooked up with a bridesmaid...thats a whole nuther story.......

    I love the fertilizer one the best. We always drive by a house that I guy used a drop spreader on and it is so funny to look at.

    MOW ED,

    The first pic looks like what one of my customers lawn looks like after True green KILL LAWN did. :mad:

    I might go out and get some free sod from the paper and do the install and make a killing. :D
