Thanks for all the suggestions everybody. I’ll be starting my lawn regimen this week, as soon as the weather clears.
Good to hear. I will PM you my address for you to come pick up the rocks you will need. There is a lot of coral and shells embedded so it should make for a pretty yard.

When I worked at the prison farm near magic mountain in cali. We used propane and pushed it in the mole and gopher holes with oxygen then hit an igniter. It may a bit of a boom but you would see the dead mole/gophers fly up 8n the air from the other ends of their tunnels.
I'm not sure the city or hoa would approve of this method however
I don’t have an HOA (and never will), but I don’t know if any of the tunnels run under my foundations, so I’d like to not blow up my house if it’s at all possible. :lol:
Figured you get a kick out of it anyway :lol: . I'm pretty sure you know what prison I'm talking about as well.
Pete's place? :mrgreen:

Here is the best info I’ve found, he’s on the radio weekends.

I just printed out a copy of his lawn care schedule. Thanks for the link.

Thanks to everyone else too. It looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me. I was just out earlier today, raking up the rest of the leaves from our red oak, and I just can’t believe how weed choked the lawn has become.

Another question..... what do you guys think of fescue as a filler for bald patches?

Lawn care suggestions...

I confess that I am at a loss regarding lawn care issues ever since we moved back in 2017, and I could sure use some suggestions.

When we first moved to this house, our front lawn wasn’t perfect, but it was respectably good. Today, 2 years later, it is shot through with all manner of weeds; the St Augustine is faring poorly; and moles have turned it into a high risk place to walk. We have a what I would call a large front lawn, and I mean that nearly the whole thing has become treacherous footing. My wife is very unhappy with the way it looks (I confess more so than I am), and because she's not happy with it, I'm not happy.....if you know what I mean.

We water regularly as needed, and are careful not to over-water, so that’s not really an issue. I can no longer afford a gardener or lawn care service....not that the service I used to have (TruGreen) was worth a cup of warm spit....and so I’m curious to know what you do-it-yourselfers who take pride in your lawns do to keep it looking nice.

I'm willing to put in the sweat equity, but I don’t even know where to start...although it makes sense to me to start by killing off weeds and moles. What do you guys suggest?
