Re: misapplied grass seed


My thoughts exactly. If they don't know how to put grass seed where grass is supposed to grow, I have grave doubts about letting them near my plants again.

The cement contractor appears to have done a fine job, but the subcontractor doing the lawn repair, well, results aren't quite in yet, but the weeds are.

Oh gosh- that could really be dangerous.... do they know the difference
between grass and a plant- do they know how to NOT step on a plant to
pull something else out...
