So you may remember I had posted about growing grass in our yard in the spring. (http://form2form.wordpress.com/2011/03/28/how-does-your-garden-grow/) Well apparently our garden/grass grows better in the fall.
Perhaps it is the cooler temperature, or maybe it is because James and I are actually WATERING the grass every day. Yeah some how we forgot that important step during the first go round. Plus this time we have spent our time focusing on just the front of our yard. In the spring we used the huge 20 pd bag to seed the front and the back. This fall we used just the 20pd bag on the front yard, so we over seeded. This made a huge difference! Here is a before & after:
It seriously looked like this all summer. A big mess of grounded up stumps. Here is how it looks today:
We are LOVING the results. However there are a few patchy areas so this past weekend we bought another 20 pound bag of seed, REBEL, love it recommend it, and over seeded the area again. We will keep on doing the same as this time around, lots of watering and we will keep you readers updated and let you know how our yard is growing these days. We are so proud of our yard we have to show it off. It has gone front sketchy & trashy to open and inviting. P.S we did not aerate as most recommend and it still turn out pretty nice so hope this helps all you fellow black thumbs out there.
