The prognosis was as expected, short trim today, chemical death tomorrow, and new sod once I get my game plan together on the retaining wall, back fill, and fence.

Turned the sprinklers on yesterday for the first time to test, and was immediately met with Old Faithful. Looks like I'll be adjusting and replacing sprinkler heads at some point, I'll add it to "the lost, and re-prioritize. The previous owners did literally zero maintenance to this house, it's a nice neighborhood, so they were apparently "those neighbors."

Alright I've finally come up with a way. For me to not have to do any yard work, and to have a great looking lawn.

Fake grass.

Its looking better and better these days. The shit looks real.

If any of you have seen my remodel thread, you know I've fought a flood in my back yard any time it rains. This led me to all but ignore that area of my yard. Well, with all of the rain in February, I dug a fresh trench under the fence to try and drain water off faster, as my drains couldn't keep up. On the outside of the fence, I found rebar from the sidewalk project along my property that was completed in 2013 I believe. Is ent pics to the city, met with their engineer, and they agreed to fix the grading on the outside of my fence. SCORE!

Here is what I have now:



I had to stay on top of them to get it done as they kept telling me they were to busy to get right on it. I finally offered to take care of it with my resources if they would reimburse me, a group of city workers showed up the next day. That was 3 weeks or so ago, still no sod. They will no doubt lay it while I am on vacation next week :/

I have Saint Augustine, so I can’t use MSMA. I’ve hit my lawn with weed N feed twice this season and the broadleaf grass won’t go away, nor is my Saint Augustine trying to fill it in. . I used an incorrect setting on the spreader last fall with the pre-emergent, which killed some of the Saint Augustine and left patches of dormant (probably dead) Saint Augustine that is allowing weed growth. I really need to go and de-thatch the lawn and hope my Saint Augustine starts to grow in. It’s really pissing me off.

Wait till your grass has fully recovered. If you are just spot spraying go ahead and killíem.
