Yes, and I noticed you published personal information, including my
subdivision, in another newsgroup. Since I have never mentioned my
subdivision, this means you have spent a lot of time doing your
"research" looking up my address and gathering information on various
county government websites.
It's obvious you have an inordinate amount of free time on your hands,
but are you a stalker? Let me know upfront so I'll know what kind of
person I'm dealing with and I can inform the Las Vegas authorities if

I spent only a few moments looking to understand the fervor with which
you argue a seemingly idiotic stand and discover you spend an

So did she or did she not sign a contract?
And what did that contract say about overseeding? Is overseeding the
standard practice in your area? You've already said that at least two
companies have done it without being asked to do it. If it's the
standard practice in your area, and she didn't get it in writing that
they shouldn't and wouldn't do so, then she hasn't a leg to stand on.
Or do you not even care about this anymore. Your latest posts seem to
indicate you're more interested in flaming folks for assuming that
you've been telling us an accurate story. Your facts keep shifting in
vain attempts to bolster your self-righteousness. You want to make this
some emotional "I'm right even if I'm wrong" thread, fine. Feel free to
ignore the good advice you've been getting. Go ahead and let your
neighbor get "scammed" next year just because your ego is too big to
allow you to listen to advice.
I'm stating an opinion that I believe some lawn companies are
spreading winter rye without telling their customers. For two years in
a row someone has spread winter rye on my next door neighbor's lawn.
She has used two different companies. Nowhere on the agreements she
has signed is there any word, phrase or clause about these companies
spreading winter rye.
I believe I initiated a reasonable message to this thread. I believe
my messages since have been clear. Obviously there is some disconnect,
and I'm not going to disrupt the newsgroup further.
Wow. Searching the Google archives for messages totally unrelated to
this newsgroup. You must be a very busy man, Tom.
So getting back to the subject at hand, if a lawn crew put down an
inorganic high-nitrogen fertilizer on your lawn without your
permission so that your lawn would grow faster and require more
cutting, would you be OK with that?
This discussion has gotten amazingly boring really quickly. What a
coincidence, you got a sweet old lady who never drives her car anywhere but
to church on Sunday, and someone's ripping her off. Fortunately you live
next door, have an excess amount of free time and can rescue her.
If it's a problem, 1 word, RoundUp! It solves every lawn problem. Is your
name Hank Hill? Do you sell propane and propane accessories?
Okay let me start off by stating I`am in the lawn care bizz.
Overseeding ? is this normal for your area? Commerical AND residential??
Down here in Fla. its mainly for commerical accounts as they all want to
have green yr. round and will pay for it. But if its normal everywhere in
your area they may do this for EVERYBODY as standard practice- -thus do your
lady friend a favor and
cut the yard every 12--18 days, set the deck to the lowest setting and use a
REALLY SHARP BLADE.
Next yr have her or you plainly state that the lawn company is under way to
to overseed the yard!!
Have them write it and sign it along with the contract.

I've restrained myself through all this, but I find myself with a free
moment (slow server day) and I have to ask what this guy did to
deserve such wrath. He saw what he thought was a scam and reported it
to help others avoid being taken. Sure, most of us mow our own grass.
So ignore it. What's the problem? Yes, he got a bit testy after his
eyebrows were burned off, but who wouldn't be a bit defensive in his
Lou, I wasn't about to get taken by insidious overseeding, but thanks
for trying to help anyway.
