As many people know, I'm in the process of moving to Austin. Before that can happen, we need to sell our current house. To prepare for selling, we did many things around the house to get it in top showing condition. It looks very nice, if I do say so myself.
One of the things we decided to do was spread down some Rye seed as Rye likes to grow in the Winter. This will make for a green lawn and will have better appeal to people instead of the dingy looking yellowish brown, dead looking lawn as bermuda grass goes dormant in the Winter.
Well, we have found a design flaw in Rye grass... it doesn't like anything but "water" being used on it. Oscar thinks he's doing the right thing by helping water the lawn, but he's actually making it worse. We don't have any other choice unless we ban him from the yard and only allow him to water the mailbox, so we live with crop circles in the backyard.
Hopefully, buyers will understand and not look at it as a diseased yard.
