Tough summer on my grass this year, I have or should I say I had Bluegrass and it took a dive in all the hot days we had here. So, for the first time in my life I have hired someone to work on my yard. I hated to spend the money but I tried to rake up the dead grass yesterday and no freaking way. I did about 7 x 7 square foot patch and thought BS on that. That’s some hard work, I consider myself in pretty good shape (I run about 30 miles a week) but after about and hour I called a guy and he is coming out and vertical cut 2 ways and rake it up haul all my dead grass out and over seed with fescue. I guess I feel a little guilty for not doing it myself, but I also know there are times when you are over your head and help is the only way. Anybody else have the issues this year?
