Also, I was going to plant my grass this weekend but now they are calling for Snow. Will the cold weather hurt my grass seed? Perhaps I should wait.....
Nope, it will just lie dormant until the right conditions, like warmer weather and rain. Go ahead and proceed this weekend. Get your yard ready for those needed conditions. And p.s. DO NOT USE PRE-EMERGENTS!

Don't you hate that?? I'm gonna be training my dogs to pee in the pine needles so they don't burn my grass this year!

i just started giving my dogs a supplement that is supposed to help the burn marks. i found it at PetSmart. it's supposed to lower the PH in the urine so it doesn't burn. i haven't seen results yet. it's hard to tell when the grass is mostly dead to begin with.

Default haha..ours is awful seriously!

OUr builder has to replace our front sod and he won't until the restrictions are lifted he also said he can't get sod yet until their growers grow more...so it looks like our yard and frony yard will be horrible for at least 2 years!

I'm leery of a product that changes my dogs natural biochemistry. I'm gonna try the sticks you put in the ground that make them want to pee there. I think they are available at PetSmart too.

Or you could just seed it yourself and see if the builder will comp you for it.

That's interesting. I see builders in my area laying sod now even w/the restrictions.

Just because we are under restrictions doesn't mean the sod can't take. It can if we get periodic drenching rains....
