A DEAD lawn.
Greg, known to most of you as Fisherhubby, loves his yard. He fertilizes. He kills the dandelions. He mows (only AFTER it rains) with the blade set high. He never mows if it is dry.
Usually his lawn is the envy of the neighborhood. People have STOPPED in front of our house to ask what he does to keep his lawn so green. Once the professional lawn care guy who was working on the neighbor's yard asked him how he kept it so green, said Greg was ruining his reputation since our lawn was so much greener than the rest of the neighborhood.
Well no more - - -
This is how our lawn looks today!!!
Earlier in the summer Greg decided to wage war on the ONE weed in his lawn that he couldn't seem to get rid of - - - - CRAB GRASS. So, he sprayed the lawn with a product that claimed to kill ONLY crab grass. I asked him how the herbicide was going to know crab grass from the more desirable kind - - - - I was ignored.
After weeks of no rain, we thought our yard, like ALL the yards in Marion was brown because it needed water. BUT - - - the rain came and we still have a brown lawn. Actually, if you look closely you will see it isn't quite ALL brown - - - there's a LITTLE green in there - - - -
Look closely - - -
Look VERY closely - - -
Do you see it??? - - -
Do you recognize this small green patch?
Or this one???
Or how about this one???
Do you know what they are? These tiny patches of green in our otherwise dead lawn?
The neighbor's yards are green again.
Even the empty lot across the street is green again, and it gets NO CARE except an occasional mowing with a tractor!!!
NO ONE is jealous of our grass any more.
Hmmmmm - - - I wonder if there could POSSIBLY be a lesson in here somewhere?!?
Addendum: Remember, this is an OLD post. Maybe on another Sunday rerun I will show the contortions he went through to FIX his lawn, but in the meantime, do not lose any sleep over Fisherhubby and his yard - - - it is all better now.
