@Alex1389 I nominated and voted for @Babameca but I just got done reading your entire journal and it's pretty impressive. Congrats on the successful Reno and your yard is looking AWESOME!

Congrats to @SimonR!

If you check Simon’s join date, you’ll see he was one of the very first (#6) TLF members. The site was only 4 days old when he joined!

TLF has grown a lot since then - and his yard has shrunk a little :D , but it has always been nothing short of amazing.

It means a lot to see him win this. Well deserved. :thumbsup:

Thanks JW and the rest of TLF Admins and Mods. There are so many beautiful homes and yards on here, I'm pretty humbled that my little patch got the nod.

Thank you for everyone that has helped me along the way, however special thanks goes out to some key members that helped me from the very start. @Ware, @Mightyquinn, @Redtenchu, @dfw_pilot (& Texas Weed :lol: ) were the key guys that brought me into the world of fine turf. Without your guidance and willingness to help I would not have half the lawn knowledge I have now.

Simon

@SimonR, Congrats on this, mate! I'm sorry we weren't able to connect that time in Hong Kong, it would have been great to see you and your wife. Thank you so much for the contributions you make to TLF - truly an inspiration. Cheers.

Congrats @SimonR

I feel like even though he won fairly recently and the July vote is already finished, @Stuofsci02 deserves honourable mention for this beauty:
