Just put down Milorganite on the lawn...with all the rain yesterday and today, should keep the green for the next month or so and the repeat in late June.

Absolutely love this video. All about taking care of your home. With just a couple simple steps, your neighbors will be wanting to know your secrets. Lawn care really is quite simple...all depends on how you approach it.

How is everyone's lawn doing at this point?

Going to cut mine tomorrow and it's looking great for mid June.

Hope everyone's lawn is going well at this point in the summer. Would be interesting in hearing anything particular that you do during the months of July and August to get it through the peak of summer.

Do you water after you apply this?

Drought? What drought?

No sprinklers, No Watering. No Rain. No editing.








Trick is to avoid Rye Grass around here and maintain it constantly and feed at the right times and most importantly... DONT BAG!! There is moisture in the grass blades + its natural fertilizer with nutrients so let the clippings just fall back down. Saves you time as well. Win Win Win.

Nice lawn! The no sprinklers, water, or rain sure would be nice, but that's just not going to happen in Texas.

............

movin2Reston, I would love to see some "best lawn on the block" pictures . BTW, I don't like that striped looking lawn that you posted in the video. I have a lawn service that cuts my grass. They do switch out and mow in a different direction each time, never leave the striped effect though.
