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.

  1. Aerated the lawn to prepare it for seed
