Talked to new neighbor about taking over the strip on the property line. He agreed. Scalped at lowest setting on rotary. Needs a level but it is not that bad.

It was likely man made when the development was built in the early 1990's. It is one in a series of many holding ponds for run off. If there is a downpour, the water actually comes up to the grass.

Cut front and back at .5”. Put down nitrogen at @ .8 lbs per 1000 (16-0-8). You can really tell where I sprayed revolver to address the poa.

.5" You can actually see some green year round if you look close enough.

Thank you both! Your KBG is coming along nicely Togo. I am originally from MN and just recently relocated to AL. The look and feel of KBG will always be my favorite, although this Zoysia grass is not far behind.

Double cut backyard at .5”. Lawn is out of regulation. Collected >3 catchers of grass and just mowed on Sunday. When it is under regulation, I don’t even fill up a single catcher.
