Thanks GTO. I am inland (Northern Ontario) but there are a few large bodies of freshwater around. I don't know where the gulls came from but it didnt' take them long to sniff out the freshly turned earth!
This will be my first year planting no-name brand seed so I can't offer much comparison. I am really fond of the WI greens but availabilty and cost in my neck of the woods has made the change for us.
Last year my wife and I were re-seeding part of the lawn and I asked her to grab some clover to lay down but she mistakenly picked up some of the forage rape I bought ... it grew very well! - thats about all I can tell you other than it doesn't make a very good lawn
We've had 2 decent rain sinces planting so I am hoping to have a look next week and start to see a 5 O'clock shadow on the ground!
Anybody else done any fall planting or plans?
