I've just focused on the plants. Let the lawn go. Hydrangeas were great this year!

I was watering my plants a ton in June. I don't ever water my grass, too much time and effort and well is too shallow anyway.

July and Aug have been pretty decent precip wise, so kept green for the most part the past couple months.

I told him to just watch soil temps for gemination.

Right, just took a look. Still looks warm with current soil temp at 80F in the tropics down there.  

Looking at the historical graph, the averages soil temp drops quickly in September based on 5 and 10 year data.  He could probably wait, but still think he could drop soon.  But you guys have more time down there for sure.  Soil temp was 59F last year on Halloween.

Yeah, I said to get all the prep work done 1st.  Kill all the existing weeds and make sure you core aerate/dethatch the hell out of lawn.  That may take a weekend alone.  Mid September will be fine to drop seed.

Also, does anyone want to venture to guess why some of my new blue spruce trees look ever so “faded” on the bottom. They aren’t brown, but the needles don’t look 100% healthy.

Could it just be that they were newly transplanted this year and it’s been hot and dry? (I’ve been watering them appropriate amounts)

I’m definitely taking a chance… I’m going to need some natural rain, there is no way I can sustain watering my entire yard after overseeing 

You just to keep the soil damp enough for germination/growth.  Not oversaturated.

I have to murder my grubs first, although the steined dead grass is probably doing that on its own. 

The skunks should be able to get rid of you grub problem, But then you'll have a sod problem.
