After 3 1/2 weeks of growing grass in my backyard, we are making some progress. The problem areas are still problem areas, but they have good reason to be so. They are starting to fill in but it’s very obvious that in my situation, the new grass literally only grows from the aerated holes. Not much going in the areas that may have filled in because of ponding water. Below is a picture showing the progression over the 3.5 weeks. It really doesn’t look drastically different from the October 5 shot, but that’s because I mowed it for the first time today. In most areas it was super thick and getting too tall, so I’m hoping it will continue to fill in.
