Weeds...

I have some new neighbors that I hope will either treat their lawn or pay someone to do it for them. I've been dealing with this for the past 4 years...






Oh, here's the other neighbor..

1) Why don't you have a privacy fence (then you wouldn't see it)?
2) Scott's Turf Builder Weed and Feed will fix that. At least on San Augustine lawns like we have around here. To really work you need to use it at least 4 times a year, and use the Winterizer after the last cutting of the season.
3) Your lawn looks great. Kudos.

1. I'd love to have one, but my yard is just shy of an acre and fencing is expensive. I don't want to be like the neighbor below me, where you could see his fence in the pics, and throw up any type of fence. The reality is that I don't have the money to have one installed. This past January, I had to have my entire front door assembly replaced, along with the trim on the front windows.





the old door.





bye!





it was cold that day!





all done!


2. I'm definitely building up a barrier to fend off the onslaught of weed seeds!

3. Thanks!! I try!

Where I live in my private development in NJ if you don't have your grass trimmed properly and looking nice both in the front and back you get a fine. I love that rule bc every house looks great and it keeps the community classy in my opinion.

Gasoline and match....
Or just put up the rear portion of the fence that covers them...
What good is a back yard if its not at least a bit private?
