Cary’s Corner – The Middle Child

Being a Middle Child

I am a middle child.  My wife would tell you that I am the poster child for all middle children.  According to Wikipedia, Middle child syndrome is the belief that middle children are excluded, ignored or even outright neglected because of their birth order.  Being in the middle is never fun.  No one ever picks the middle seat on an airplane.  Yet, when it comes to grass here we all are right in the middle.

In the above map you see what they call the Transition Zone or as I call it the Middle Child Zone.  You go up north and they grow beautiful bluegrass and ryegrass lawns.  You go down south and get green lawns like Zoysia, and St. Augustine even in ridiculous heat and dry weather.  Here we are excluded, ignored and outright neglected when it comes to great grass! Amanda Shiffler wrote a great article that explains this in a great way.  I don’t have any idea who she is, but it is worth a read.  Click here!  

All that being said what I am saying that you are most likely going to need to seed your lawn.  Yes we have to seed lawns around here often.  It is part of being a middle child.  At ClassicLawns we are particular about our seed and our seeding process.  I proudly say that no one does a better job seeding.  If you have not seen us seed.  It is a thing of beauty…like a ballet. Plus, we get results!  Guaranteed!

Over the next 10 days or so we will be emailing quotes for seeding your lawn  Please keep an eye on your inbox for your quote.
