Thanks @jessehurlburt & @iowa jim next spring should produce some good results. This fall has been amazing with it filling in from the spoon feeding. I am going to hit it with one more shot of fert this weekend and then be done for the season.

If those are your worst spots, that's awesome. And they will probably continue to fill in, under ground, until the ground freezes. I was surprised they're already filling in to that extent.

Yes last week ....with all this rain we have been having I havent needed any irrigation in weeks
When my irrigation contactor came out he was impressed with my lawn, he said wow this looks great, he was surprised I had hardly any weeds. He said every year He gives a trophy to the best lawn he services. He said the way my lawn looks now I should be in the running next year. I thought that was kinda cool.

That must be nice when someone who sees lawns all day acknowledges how nice yours looks. :mrgreen:

That's really cool!

How is the spreading going in that patch you've been photographing?
