Hi all. Im renting a house, it was built earlier this year, new subdivision... and had a brand new yard put in. It never was much but it slowly died over the summer, especially when I was out of town for 5 weeks and nobody watered it. I just got back and have been watering it but I havent seen any huge turnaround. There is a house next door that is just being finished up and they put the yard in this week. When they did that the neighbors lot went from a constuction site to a house and it makes mine stand out more.... they also have to sell that house. This week the owner I rent from got a letter of non compliance from the neighborhood association, and they say they will start fining soon. Ive been told that I need to get the yard back looking good. Ive edged, mowed, and been watering religiously but its not enough for everyone and I dont know what to do. Apparently I may be evicted if I 'cant' get the yard back looking good but I dont know what else I can do....? Is there a certain type of fertilizer I should put out?? Should I plant seeds maybe??? Whats that green spray stuff I always used to see the city spray onto medians??? Right now Ive got three different spriklers and Im turning them on several times a day, and hours at night.... to the point of standing water and me 'sinking' when I walk across sometimes. Ive also got two different soaker hoses Ive been leaving on all the time... I dont know what type of grass it is, I dont know how to tell to let you know if that info is needed? Im in Texas and its 100 degrees almost everyday. PLEASE help me if you can, ANY advice, time, and info is GREATLY appreciated.
