    That's why I say, that it depends on the definition of "lush'... most people use irrigation to ruin a lawn's chance to develop into a 'lush' full lawn... visible dirt, or clippings on the dirt, between blades of grass do NOT qualify as a 'lush' lawn in my professional view... :)

    Those of you that followed my thread from April 26,2012, noticed that the new construction was hydroseeded, with adequate preparation, but received almost zero water. After 36 days it had been mowed once and looked green and fairly lush. It was not owner occupied.

    However after that, the weather got hot and dry; almost zero water was applied, crabgrass came up, no rain for 10 weeks, the new grass died and after a hard frost in October the crabgrass also died.
