Bags of Fury - A Shameful Reprise

So - have you read this yet?? Our Bags of Fury fiasco! Well - if you don't have the time to enjoy a hilarious disaster, please at least scan to the bottom of that post to look at the result of our ignorance. It is now a few weeks later and the burns to our ego are almost as shameful as the burns in the lawn itself...





It looks horrendously awful! The only thing we can be happy about is how well the lawn grew in this year, having only been seeded in August 2008. It's not even a year old and it is quite thick and full already. See what it looked like only 10 months ago. We would have been real proud of our yard, considering we are first time homeowners of a brand new construction home. But, no matter how well we keep the lawn up ourselves - we are sandwiched between two retired neighbors that use lawncare services. We have been set up for failure!!

I think your yard looks darn good compared to that one pic you posted previously! Those burns will go away....eventually. Yeah, hate to say it but you've got quite a challenge in trying to keep your lawn nice seeing that you've got elderly neighbors who use landscaping people. Good luck w/ that.

Good luck with the yard. Think of the burnt spots as less you have to mow!
