@Suburban Jungle Life A rare look at your lawn, looks great!

Here's my TTTF/PRG reno at 1" HOC. Last actual mow for me, still will mulch leaves.

Thanks! I guess I don't share often...

Your lawn looks very nice. You also have an unusual combo. Most people mix tttf/kbg or kbg/prg. Cool to see your combo!

@Suburban Jungle Life Thanks! My lawn is this mix because of a failed seeding attempt on my reno. I put down 10lbs/1000sqft of Seed super store SS1000 TTTF mix and about 30 days later I had horrible coverage and a bunch of dead seed. With our short growing season here I was "forced" to put down a faster grass like PRG (I also mixed in the remaining 5lbs of SS1000 I had). It seems to have mixed well though.

Mulch mowed today and things look pretty good considering what it was like a couple of years ago, but I still have plenty of leaves to drop yet:

My neighbor scalped his entire lawn for some reason (and a bit of mine on the border) and it looks pretty white/brown now. His lawn actually looked decent a few weeks ago, so no idea why he would do that now. Weird :?

@ronjon84790 Your lawn makes mine look like a gravel parking lot. Beautiful. Even more impressive considering your climate.

Thanks! @cfinden Sometimes I just want to bite and install warm season grass. I planted a 5'x5' test plot of Zoysia this year in my backyard. We had one week of early cold weather before Halloween and it went dormant and looks horrible! I'll be sticking with the cool season grass for now.

@ronjon84790 I can’t let you have all the fun.... After 11 days of snow cover and temps below freezing with one day at 3 degrees F the snow has finally melted and revealed a winter paradise complete with stripes from my last mow 3 weeks ago..

@Stuofsci02 Your lawn is looking sweet! We went 7 months without rain this year and it finally rained this week! My lawn is loving it. Got a mow in today.

@ronjon84790 ....Wow..... 7 months with no rain is crazy. With the heat you get in the summers makes your cool season yard all that much more impressive...

Looking great.. I have 8" of snow on the ground, so I am going to make it through winter by living vicariously through members in the southern hemisphere....
