      Lol. Front yard will look decent this year.
      Most of the perennials have taken root and are growing nicer than they did last year.
      I spend a lot more time screwing with the grass in my front yard than playing with the flower beds.

      Because the HOA doesn't care about your back yard but that front better be on point, lol

      I had 6 red Althea plants in my backyard around my pool in Ohio. They grew into small trees and lost their leaves in the winter time. They came back every year in zone 6.

      The beds look good, Rain, but just got a text from the lawn!
      Lawn: "What am I? Chopped liver?"
      I texted back, "Ask for fish water!"

      I hate grass. Honestly.
      And don't get me started on these lawncare companies...I've been through about 5 in the past 10 years and none of them have really met my expectations.

      What I've come to realize from these 10 years:
      No lawncare = 100% weeds
      DIY lawncare = 50% weeds
      Pro lawncare = 25% weeds

      -Rain

      Being too tough on yourself, Rain. If the weeds are green, just keep the lawn watered and mowed.

      Im not sure?
      The front is bermuda...I think it was btwn 2.5-3 pallets of sod when they re-sodded the lawn a few years ago
      The back is zyosia, probably the same amount as the front.

      I don't know if you irrigate or not? But if not, at least you could set some sprinklers on that small amount and leave your beautiful kids in charge

      You seem to have it working now except for your grass.

      I would:

      Check out a soil sample for it's needs - lime, etc.

      Re-Sod and take care of it use the grass best suited for location.

      It is small enough that you could give it the applications needed yourself, easily available cheap, but you need to know what they are 1st.

      Don't forget the water (pond water ) Pool Water changes to a sprinkler for the yard and plants in addition to your kids' chores.

      Weed/Insect Control - Just need to find out what to use and apply when necessary, Not often!

      Occasional Fertilizer (cheap)

      Geesh, Stephen, that's dazzling! You maintain all of that allllll by yourself? lol
      Rain, I used to live in Fla and we had zoysia and bermuda grass and I seem to remember them as being pretty much maintenance free -- that was the point of that kind of grass.
      What kind of weeds do you get?

      Rain has very little grass and it could easily be handled by a youngster like himself and his fabulous family!!!
