Default Lawn Service Client Perspective - New Poster

I think I've found the right place to ask.

I'm not in the lawn service business, but here is the situation.

I've had several people/companies over the last 6 years cutting my front yard only, I take care of the back, when I have time. They mow twice a month, my lawn looks like hell, bare, hard ground, poor grass. $40.00 a month, they are here for Mow, Edge occasional hedge - Start to finish 11 minutes.

I know part is my fault for not watering enough, but we don't want to leave water marks on our neighbors cars, I'm in Southern Ca. and water spots are painful to remove. Three large pop up Impact sprinkler heads in the corners.

Not once has one of these "Experts" made suggestions on what I can do to minimize the water on other peoples cars, made suggestions on sprinkle changes, timing, etc. to get a healthy looking yard.

So the question is what do I do to get a nice looking yard again? Water intervals, re-seeding, new sprinklers, etc. etc. etc.

Thanks for your help,

Smitty
