This was the start of my backyard in May of 2016. I didn’t have any pictures I took personally, these were pulled off the old realtor website. What I can tell you is the pictures below don’t describe the amount of overgrowth that was here before. I’d have to say that the owners prior to us most likely inherited this mess, but just never took the time to clean it up. Long story short, I spent about two years cutting down so much bamboo or Cane some would call it, and anything and everything that was completely overgrown. I’d cut it, lay it down for a few days and either take it out to the road for the city to pick it up, or haul it off to the landfill. Needless to say it’s been a work in progress!

Zoysia is coming in quite nicely in most spots, other spots not so much.

What a transformation! What do you think is making it green up better in some spots than others? Shade?

Hey, thanks for the recognition, it was (4) years into the making. It’’s a combination of shade and the biggest reason, large patch. Last fall I didn’t put out a fungicide, after I laid the sod, and now Im battling with this fungus.

Man, this has come a long way. @BakerGreenLawnMaker

I like your path, did you just lay a row of brick and user crush and run?

@probasestealer yes! I wanted the walking path to keep off the grass as much as possible. Plus it saved me money with not laying sod in those areas.
