Default Another Show-Off-Your .... thread .... Lawncare Edition

There have been a number of lawncare threads recently. I can't be the only one that curses the time and expense of having a well-manicured lawn but just take it on the chin to show some pride in home ownership.

Let's see pics of your hardworking results, equipment, etc...

Not pic worthy yet still looks like crap. Years of neglect haven't helped

I use as little product as possible. Back yard is full of clovers, butterflies, bees love it. I’m doing my part to reduce runoff into our waterways. But I’ve got allot of catching up to do (I wasn’t always this way)

My law is about 8x3 , 6 years ago it was about 5x3 but I added some sod and tore out a few plants. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Around here nobody can get on their lawn to properly mow it. The ground has been saturated all Spring.

I will post pictures later but we had a very wet spring here in NY. I spent most of the spring re-seeding, patching my lawn. It came along nicely.

Then my landscaper comes by and in ONE visit I have tire tracks, turn marks, uneven cut. Ugh.

I told him I no longer need him. I bought a battery powered mower, a weed eater, and I subscribed to the "Sunday" lawn chemical service.

In two weeks since he cut my lawn looks the best it has in 20 years.

I should have been a landscaper.

mine is getting murdered by moles and lack of rain. Been trying to run sprinklers a good bit lately and have placed a lot of poison worms around, but there are tons of the little bastards in my yard. After I pick the last of the blackberries off my one late blooming plant, I will put down some grub ex and whatnot to try and get rid of everything I can (I'm guessing I have a ton of earthworms, though).

That sounds kind of contradictory. Moles love & need wet ground, especially to tunnel easily through. As soon as it starts drying out, moles will move on.
Perhaps your attempt at using the sprinklers is over-watering and encouraging the moles. True, food source helps, like grubs, but the moisture issue is #1.

Of course it calls for some more than average "Lawncare devices."
