I don’t know, but it is starting to get annoying.
If you remember back at the beginning, we had a few spots in the lawn that needed seed. Well, I seeded them. Within a few days, grass started to grow. I just thought this was the cat’s meow. I couldn’t believe it because I have never been all that good at getting grass to grow.
Well, now that the thick grass is coming in, it’s making all the old grass look…well, old. Now I want new grass everywhere.
Every time I see a nice green lawn, I get green with envy. I have no idea why. I have seen guys like this when I was a kid. I never knew why they kept looking at their lawns. Now, I look at grass. It’s silly, but for some strange reason, we do it.
This is the area of the lawn where there were big bald areas. I didn’t think I would get anything to grow, but it started sprouting within days.
This is the area that was pretty good. Now, the grass is starting to get a little crispy. I want that nice, soft, green grass here too. I think I am going to get one last bag of seed and do a little seeding up here.
This is the back yard. As you can see, there are no problems here. I finally got it just the way I wanted. Even from the upstairs window, the entire law looks full and thick.
I just seeded some front areas the other day. It is starting to come in and is looking thicker every day. As I mentioned, I am going to get one more bag for the front and call it quits for the season.
One thing I discovered during my last mow was that if I raise the mower deck one level, the grass looks better. I get less clumping and the grass looks a heck of a lot better. I am going to mow it like that from now on.
Now, some people out there might think I am wasting my time with all this grass talk. Well, perhaps you are correct, but I am not going to have heavy rain wash away the top layer of dirt anymore. I would like a nice root system going on to protect the lawn from the rain.
