Hi lawn freak here - My wife and I had a new home built last year. As part of the deal with the builder they included a " lawn ". My house was built on an old farm so you would think rich in organics and good soil - only problem is they graded all the good stuff away and left junk for my soil. They seeded with a mix of Kentucky blue grass and rye , which I do like, but the soil is terrible -mostly clay with dirt mixed in. Short story - the lanscapers planted a Pin Oak in my front yard ... it died ( due to terrible soil ) I said I want a new tree - one Saturday I went to rent a movie at Blockbuster I was gone 15 minutes - I came home and there she was a brand new tree in the same junk dirt that the other tree died in. Needless to say that tree has now also died - Unbelievable - I feel sorry for their trees !!! Anyway I joined this forum to learn how best to make my yard perfect as anything less than perfection is simply unacceptable

I live in: United States

My zone is: 5 NE OH
