As a lawn care professional, Doug Mattox spends his days making home lawns more beautiful. He recently decided it was time to give his own front yard a makeover. He renovated his 10,500-square foot lawn using seed, fertilizer, and nutrients from ATS.

Doug’s process is outlined below with pictures to show the transformation. The renovation also included daily watering.
