I'm nominating @ChadStokes. He went through a lot on his renovation last year, but he managed to grow a beautiful KBG lawn through serious hard work.

I'm going to nominate @ronjon84790's journal. This guy is growing cool season grass in 100°F+ weather. It would be a struggle just to keep it alive, yet he keeps it looking good!

Warm season guys have their own LOTM category - it's called Dec-Jan-Feb-March-April.

We could start striping and entering our driveway snow clearing! :lol:

We considered this, but decided to not water it down. Having one LOTM is more prestigious - and this isn't one of those everyone gets a trophy competitions. :lol:

I agree that striping seems to make a difference in the winner, but 10 vs 7 doesn't seem lop-sided to me. And that figure is crediting Movingshrub as a cool season victory.
