Buying a bag of Scott's is even cheaper and you can do it whenever it is not so green and it really works. To bad I'm not getting anything for all the advertisement I give them.....lol

Scott's which one? We use their Weed N Feed every spring & fall and I swear it's just like doing nothing to our lawn.

It is Scott's fertilizer with iron in it. The iron makes it really look green. I buy it at Home Depot. The bag is green, purple and white.
It also makes it grow faster...... so you have to mow a little bit more, but it stays green.

I wish!!
The reason for giving out the name is that it can save many HOA's a lot of letters and home owners a lot of anger receiving these letters.

So there is some sort of new law in Pasco County (not simply HOA rules) that actually tell you what kind of grass you can plant and whether you can have sprinklers or not? What next, mandatory new shower heads monitored by the police department over the Internet? Off to jail if you get a little too comfy enjoying a hot shower?

Well many people move here from other areas and then plant grass and other fauna that is not compatible with the environment down here.

They then have to water all the time to keep it all alive.

If people would use common sense the counties would not have to force them to use it.

I have green grass and I don't have a springkler system and all my other plants, which are for the most part drought tolerant, are on a drip irrigation system.

I did this without having to be told what to do and I also get the benefit of being able to water everyday if I wanted to and still not be breaking any watering rules.

And there are already rules in place regarding shower heads. Just not monitored yet.

I would've planted something drought resistant but I didn't plant this lawn ...it came w/ the house I'm kinda wishing we had bahia(sp) even though I get made at it for going dormant ...but its always alive ...but I don't have it.
I have noticed my dog prefers bahia grass over st augustine.
