I think I'm required to nominate @MNLawnGuy1980 because this dude's lawn is absolutely bonkers.

Thanks @SumBeach35 for the nomination. I truly appreciate it!

Thanks @MNLawnGuy1980! It's been quite the ride for both of this year. You've made a hell of a comeback from your earlier struggles. The hard work is paying off!

Thank you everyone, quite frankly I wasn't even expecting to be nominated, let alone win. Especially against those other lawns.

Fun fact (maybe it's not that fun), last month's winner @ABC123 lives five doors down from me. Nice representation from our little town in MN.

I *totally* missed this! Wow. Nominated for LOTM was really unexpected! Becoming the 1st runner up in competition with the other, I must say, *spectacularly* good looking lawns is almost unreal. I'm truly struggling to take it all in, right now... I mean, @MNLawnGuy1980 totally deserves the win IMHO, but I can honestly say that the other lawns nominated where all absolutely stunning too.

Again, I am truly humbled by the nomination (thanks @RCUK) and I feel that just being mentioned in this forum section definitely inspires me to contiue to keep refining my lawn for years to come. Thanks all, for the fantastic feedback you have given me!
