Man, there really are some sweet lawns this month. I chose alpine. His stripes look great.

Here’s a pic I posted in my journal on 7/24 one day after a cut.

Yeah I noticed a pattern that individuals with nice stripes get voted up from month to month. Not to discredit their hard work but stripes doesn’t always tell the whole story. It would be nice to see a nice lawn with an epic story win LOTM for a change. Otherwise we could call it SOTM, Just my 2¢. Please don’t anyone get offended.

I love the stripes as well but will never have them as I can’t seem to mow in a straight line 🤣🤪

Fact is lots of folks put in the work on there lawns, shrubs, flowers and so on. I salute anyone who at least makes an effort to take care of their own property or help it a neighbor.

Everyone has a story and I agree that the journal is important for our own edification and not so much to “dominate” a neighbor! I’m lucky being retired so I make time for my lawn out of the Joy/frustration of doing it. Raising granddaughters takes its toll so the lawn is my time but love it when they help!

Thanks so much for your efforts and support as it’s truly appreciated Sir!!! 👍🏾

Show Cliff aka @ctrav some love gentlemen!!
I've got all of the love in the world for ctrav. He is an awesome forum member. His posts make every thread better. And his lawn is spectacular. I believe that I've even visited his journal just to let him know that. He's got a LOTM lawn. I mean every word of that.

But so does SNOWBOB. Turf meets landscaping par excellence.

I must admit, I do like the stripes however this is not my deciding factor. For me personally I love to see the "rags to riches" journals.

I had that experience with my house in GA when I knew nothing about grass. Bought some P77 seed in GA red clay (15k sq ft) and started to "throw her down". Took 5 years to finally have a full grass back yard. :lol: The next year the septic drain field went out and there it went the lawn... :cry:

It does look good. I have never made Bermuda look that good before. I also know what it’s like to push mow an acre just because it will look better. These guys have put in blood sweat and tears. I hope they know that other people on here notice their hard work even if they don’t win.
