Before and After Pictures of my Lawn
I have really learned a lot from reading this forum over the past three years. Here are some before and after shots of my tall fescue lawn in Raleigh, NC. I bought my house in 2006 and it had a terrible lawn. I aerated and overseeded in 2006, skipped 2007 due to severe drought, and aerated and overseeded in fall 2009. I put lime down every fall (we have acidic red clay here) and fertilize in the fall and spring. I do not water my lawn at all except for during the month after I overseed. I must say following that basic maintenance regime for three years has really improved my lawn. Thanks for all the great advice this board provides. :-)
This is what the lawn looked like in 2006 when we bought the house.
This is what it looks like today (2009)
Before in 2006
