It's been five years this summer since the pond was dug, and front yard leveled with the spoil. It's been a struggle as the last two summers were extremely hot and dry. The clay spoil from the pond turned to something akin to concrete. Think the grass is finally going to fill in and put down Merit last night to control the grubs coming later. had 3/4" rain and the outlook seems good. Bought a new Lazer Z AS with 60" Ultracut deck three weeks ago after doing much research on this site. Just a homeowner, what do you pros think?
