Today the guy from Trugreen lawn service came to 'access' my lawn. (Yes, i employ Trugreen to fertilize my postage stamp size lawn...i'm hopeless at maintaining good grass).This apparently is a new service they offer. Actually it's a ploy to sell more services like grub control, insect infestation control...blah, blah. However, the accessment was free. He told me my lawn was in A-1 condition. Good color, good length of grass, few weeds(better not be any!) and no thatch. He said mine was the best lawn and gardens he's seen in town. My plants were in amazing shape and my shrubs and trees looked to be in great health. A regular oasis he called it. He couldn't stop looking. It made me feel like i had accomplished my mission...a garden haven away from the world. Oasis...i like that.
