The Grass is Always Greener...
It looks like a zebra in greens. My boyfriend fertilized it for me and he didn't follow the tire tracks of the spreader, in fact his exact words were ... "Don't worry, the fertilizer will spread out as it gets wet" And me being a bit older (and sometimes wiser...ok, maybe just older with more experience at least!) tried to explain how it works, but he was having nothing to do with it. After-all he used to work for a landscaping company right?!
SO... fast forward to this past weekend, my kids have all come to take me to dinner and see The DaVinci Code (My belated mothersday because I HAD to see this movie) and my youngest daughter is walking around the yard showing her boyfriend my gardens and she stops in the middle of the lawn. And I say to John "Watch, she's gonna ask whats wrong with the grass" and thankfully he has a good sense of humor and lets me pick on him, and sure enough Holland says "Mom, whats up with your grass?" So I said we're just going for the zebra look this year.
Anyway... Since I don't actually want to say "I told you so..." bought two more bags of fertilizer AND a bag of powdered lime dust so this time when he spreads it he can see where the heck he's been!
And the lime will kill off fleas, ticks and help with the fireants.
