Thanks for the info! I've been on Google search with no luck. Looks like a Purple Plum according to some images I found. The pink flowering tree might be a crabapple?

That's what the wife thought. We have the last one as well, but she couldn't remember its name either
I'll have her look again when she gets back from her Karate class...

You appear to be missing some dandelions. Those little bursts of yellow amongst the green grass just really brighten up your day. I have several in my lawn, and would be willing to share?

Man... I am as Anti-Weed as they come! I did my Weed & Feed back in early March so that certainly helps. But inevitably, a few will always manage to pop up. From the fact that my landscapers cut other folks yards and I'm sure seeds get spread about. I am always looking for weeds to hand pull before they sprout and drop seeds.

Miss Kim is the variety

Marigolds are doing well in the containers we bought last week


these are pretty cool. I forgot what they are called but they almost look fake. very fluffy to the touch Celosia is the name.

Hope this helps.

I actually put down Milorganite a couple of weeks ago on a few trouble spots in the front. Didn't notice much after reading so much praise from reviews. But I decided to put down much more since it's guaranteed not to burn. Plus I read where for best results you have to use a lot! So I put it down again heavily right after a soaking rain this past weekend. I'm gonna give it 2 weeks. I took before shots and will post up then....
it is supposed to be like Steroids for the yard including flowers and trees.

So maybe one of you experts can give me some advice.

I live in the Northern part of South Carolina about 5 minutes away from the NC foothills...specifically Zone 7B on the USDA guide for planting zones.

Grass is basically a cool season tall fescue. Front yard looks great, but all areas of it are exposed to sun and it gets watered.

Back yard is another issue. We have a couple of pretty large Oaks that shade one side of the yard pretty much all the time. On the un-shaded side the grass looks fine. Where the shade is, that is the part I'm having trouble with.

Taking the trees down isn't an option as they provide a nice buffer for all the houses they built behind me and did not leave a barrier of trees between this street like they did on our other streets. Plus the trees provide shade for our 2 Elk Hounds...although they prefer to be in the sun most of the time.

Any suggestions of anything I could get planted and established in that area? I'm not opposed to anything as long as it's green and just gives the ground some cover as we will probably be moving within a year or so anyway because of them developing the street behind us that was once wooded.

Not looking for anything fancy...just something to fill in the areas that are missing so the yard looks a little more normal even if we aren't planning on being here for that much longer.

Thanks!

Sounds like you may need a more shade tolerant type of grass in the backyard, although I thought fescue was fairly shade tolerant. Is the backyard getting water and any fertilizer?

Have you ever had a certified arborist trim the oaks? We have 2 Live Oaks in our front yard and have an arborist come in every 3-5 years or so to make sure the canopy isn't growing too low or into the house, to remove problematic limbs and to open up the center of the tree for air circulation. It's expensive but the trees are doing really well. It seems most people let them just grow without a lot a thoughtful pruning but they can get thick bunches of branches and leaves that worry me if a hurricane blows through. (Otherwise they hold up really well in a storm as the leaves just blow off.). Just wondering what others do. Maybe thinning them out a bit can let enough light through for the lawn but still provide a nice shade cover?

Milo is slow releasing so it takes quite awhile to notice but Milo in the lawn community is very good cause it's somewhat organic with it's new formula. Problem is there's such a shortage of it most lawn enthusiasts are looking for different alternatives. I usually put that down early Spring, Memorial Day and 4th of July. This year I decided to go with CarbonX because of its special ingredients I'll post some pictures this afternoon of how dark green the lawn is
