I am still pretty new here and havent had the time to figure out how to post the pics yet, but I took some this morning of my son's car across the street covered with snow.....THIS SUCKS! lol

The grass is really greening up under it though, and no dry days until Saturday per the weather man here. Thats when I was planning to sharpen blades and do oil changes and stuff because I am running behind this year due to other projects.

Should get my first 3 lawns done Sunday,,,,,all freebies,,,> mine, my son's, and my daughters! LOL,,,,family comes first for me. Then the rain will be back for several days.

In the mean time I am still so busy on other projects I dont even have time to think very far ahead. Schedule is lined up with too much personal stuff at the moment, classes and daughters baby shower, and getting her place cleaned up for it etc....damn kids anyhow,,Dad this, Dad that....it might be a pain sometimes, but whats a guy to do...

Good Luck to everyone this season, and wishing everyone much success!

Tom

I will use the granule type for this job.
Soil testing is always best, but I can tell this lawn hasnít had much TLC so lime was my up sell. I will make other recommendations after the clean up / lime job is done.
