That color is looking great. How does the midnight in the back look?

Ripped out my annuals that the frost got. Cleaned the weeds up, sprayed humic acid and raked the soil. Getting ready to put Wave Pansies in this weekend.

Quick trim at 1/2”. Much deeper green and stripes harder when cut at higher HOC so need to decide how I’m going to maintain rest of season.

Update on PRG 1/15/20. Been really busy lately and not had a chance to cut so it’s pretty shaggy.

Wow, great job. Love seeing a lawn look that nice with readily available and relatively inexpensive Home Depot Bermuda seed. Do you happen to remember the varieties in yours? I used to check the Vigoro bags over the spring months and it would change from lot to lot but sometimes there were some decent varieties in there. I still have most of a 25 lb bag I got in the fall on clearance for like $29... It's Transcontinental and Majestic. Not bad for the price.

Have you at all compared yours to a "better" seeded variety or even a sodded hybrid?

@Chocolate Lab the cultivar I planted was called Gold Glove Bermuda. I haven’t had any luck finding any research on it though.

@Chocolate Lab also, my neighbor has Celebration Bermuda and is much more aesthetically pleasing than mine so I tend to reel mow his that touches my yard and fertilize it heavy encouraging encroachment into my yard.

I see, that's the Scotts version. If you want to hunt around you can find the code name they used and find it in the NTEP tests.

It looks really good from here. :thumbup:
