    High fibre diet helps move through more volume.

    RIP My front lawn.

    I had 3 of these planted last year, 2 of them seem to be doing okay. Is this third one considered dead? Or could it still make a comeback next year?

    Also..anyone know what they're called?

    My bro is so fucked, this is the neighbors across from him and its like this in the whole community. He put that artificial grass in years ago to avoid maintaining grass and now he has to lay sod and then maintain it all lol

    It was hard to tell for sure yesterday because it was kinda wet but my lawn is looking a lot greener than it was before. It looked like shit after the detatch and there was a couple spots where i scalped it pretty good but they filled in pretty good

    So your brother put in turf in an acreage community? That would be like $100k. It would be way cheaper to pay landscapers haha.

    My bad, i forgot to say the turf was in his old house, he just moved to the acreage on the weekend. It would be well over 100k to cover his chunk of land. It was just under $15k to turf his old place, the turf itself was pretty expensive but it was the labor and prep needed that makes it so expensive.

    A lawn of that size is a loosing battle for Beyond.ca's award for best lawn of the year.

    You can maybe fertilize it but mostly you're just letting it go somewhat wild. No way are you spot killing weeds and/or watering it with a sprinkler lol

    I'm trying, but I'm missing the joke. I hope it's really mean!
    My wife had to hastily mow it (and she doesn't usually) because a duck has decided to nest in our yard (because my grass is so fuckin tight). So she's got nine eggs (I've been meaning to start a Tony Soprano thread) and she only fucks off about once a day and only for about an hour, so it's been tough to mow on schedule. Mrs. MightyPenis didn't manage the same QC level as myself, but at least it got done.

    The nice thing about a lawn like that is the sheer size changes the scale of imperfections so they're no where near as noticeable.

    I don't have anything quite like Rocket's brother, but I'm in my first season at the new place and my lawn looks way better with way less work than my old yard...

    A lawn with no significant tree's is super easy to take care of.

    I find the bigger yard easier. Grab the 120L tank sprayer and let it go with Par3. I think the key is an application in the fall. I’m going to try that this year.
