Lawn Fertilizer Challenge

Ahhh…Spring. A time to break out the tools. Tools that cut, blow, edge and mow all the things that grow. So, Pete and I are having a little dad-ly challenge. A cultivation contest…a blade bash…fertilizer feud…or a “grass-off” of sorts. To ensure we have stuff to cut, blow and mow, we’re gonna fertilize our lawns … Continue Reading
