It looks very much like this. [pennington.com] I'm still baffled by the oxymoron, "drought tolerant" while at the same time needing a lot of water. Thanks all.

Be careful of the fertilizer. My neighbor a few years back closed out his home in Florida and brought home a bag of what he told me was fertiliser for Bermuda grass. He used it on his yard and it very quickly turn brown and he had dig up 3 inches of soil and have new brought in and redo the whole yard.

The greatest teacher failure is.
I find it ironic how people pump so much money into lawns. Wow, it’s growing so well. Buzzzzzzzzzzzz. Chop it off! It’s hilarious if you actually think about it.

Mind you, I have dandelions coming out of the yin yang up here but I don’t want to spray the lawn as my kids (3 & 1) play out there.

Dandelions are a plague up here, especially when neighbors on both sides rarely even mow theirs. frown
Try Agricultural Vinegar (20% strength) on them. We use a Fiskars weed plucker and then put vinegar in the holes, or else they re-sprout from the remnants of the roots.

Interesting. If you want it to spread, maybe pop out small plugs and plant them in an ever increasing circle?


Another quality post.

I've thought about that Rusty. I may do that. I do like it.
