Steven P's Salad Bar!

Post by ItsMeStevenP »

Hi all. Recently been bit by the bug.

We purchased our home in July of 2020, we were expecting our baby boy. Our little boy came into this world and I immediately thought of lawn usage. How can we use a lawn that is crap? Why not try a little lawn domination? So heres my journal, pretty much so I can see my progression.

Anyway, here we go.


Image Yikes! No irrigation or anything. May here.

Back yard

Drive way

As you can see, there's a lot to get done around here.

The rains eventually came in July and now we are lush and green. Its not bermuda, but at least its green.

While decorating, I find what we call 'sandspurs' I am fairly certain they are really burweed, but not certain. They're indicative of other issues within the lawn, anyway, I go out and I pick those by hand. (heard the spur parts are what spread them, they are bad.)

Sandburs are a real hassle. We have a ton of them :x . They spread easily and it takes a couple seasons to get rid of them. I got some Ike's Sandbur Preventer as a pre-em. https://www.domyown.com/ikes-sandbur-an ... 23071.html I also use MSMA to kill the ones that are going. But really, the pre-emergent is the best route. Good luck with those things.
