    What is the best way in having a green lawn all year round?

      Well, here in Texas, most people have St. Augustine grass for their lawns, which is hearty for our hot summers, but goes dormant (brown) in the witner months. Those people who want green grass in the winter also spread rye grass seeds which grows during the winter months and fills in the St. Augustine's lack of growth. THey seem to be compatible and neither chockes out the other. If you live in a place that gets snow in the winter, you're out of luck.

    You can get some great waterproof and dog-proof Magik Lawn Sprays today...

    So if you have just planted the grass seeds and can't wait until the grass grows into solid covering.. then just spray the entire area with whatever color you want and magically, your lawn will not only fool your neighbors, but also birds, dogs and Google Earth!  smile

    Great lawn care requires -  a good aerated base that has been built up and rolled level - the right seeding or plugs - a watering regime that ensures that the lawn, at no growing stage will 'burn' from lack of sustenance or harsh nutrients - a good mower or...... 

    just do nothing.... just spray whatever color grass you want... my neighbor got the black and white polka dot spray - but though it looks good... it really creates problems with big dogs and wild pigs!  big_smile

    Good Luck DDE... smile
