    Too many trees competing with grass. Shade is great for growing weeds and moss.

    Two things I notice immediately-the shade from the trees will prevent ever having a really nice lawn unless the trees are trimmed and thinned, and (second photo down) appears to be drought damage from a mower, probably will be a chronic problem due to the number of trees competing for moisture.

    Its not too late to overseed, Id run over the lawn with heavy app of 10-20-10 then go over with a renovator or slit seeder and the lawn will look great for a few weeks and at least youll make a few bucks and have a customer til next summer when the drought/shade cycle will once again begin.

    Whats spooky about the lake? Somebody looking up from the bottom?
