Mowed the yard for the first time this season. It looks a little better now that it's even. Hopefully when I lay down the next course of fertilizer, the zebra striped effect will be subdued somewhat. When I laid down the first course of fertilizer with halts (supposedly to prevent crabgrass from germinating, although some of it is starting to come up), I either missed half the lawn or the spreader closed up on every other row. From certain angles it looks like a dark and light green zebra is laying down on the lawn. It's not pretty.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that for the first time in over two years, mowing the yard was pain free!
