I decided to take advantage of the low cut grass to make a last ditch effort at getting some new growth in our yard. I took much of what was left of the seed I bought last year and generously coverd the areas with the least amout of green.
When I came home this evening it was obvious that Mile Hi had returned. They were supposed to come back and do another round of overseeding. Instead, it appears they did another round of everything. I don’t know if they spread seed but I don’t really care at this point. Either they did or they didn’t. Either something grows or it doesn’t. Just in case what they did was helpful, Dana did some watering. I may go out there at some point soon and do a bit of raking and put down my own seed (especially in the really bald spots. I’ve still got some seed left from last year’s seeding. It’s supposed to possibly rain over night tonight. One can only hope.
After a disheartening attempt at getting our yard to return from the dead last year, it was time to take another crack at things. We decided to start things off right and get the yard aerated. Throughout the neighborhood there are signs for Mile Hi Aeration. Jury is still out on whether they are a trustworthy bunch. They came today to aerate the lawn and then do fertilization and overseeding. They claim the fertilizer is liquid so we won’t see it but they also claimed that the seeding is mixed with ther fertilizer and I see no sign of seed on my lawn. Dana called them to ask why we find no evidence of seeding and they said they’d call back. That has not yet happened. It is clear the yard was aerated though the plugs are only about 3″–not sure if that’s deep or shallow. Either way it should be better than it was last year in this regard.
