The green, green grass of home

Our front lawn is small, and easy to maintain. It is also in my face, and hence easy to remember.
Over the summer, I have been making a conscious effort to tend it, ever since Darren quipped that it was going to the dogs, or some such. I read up about Buffalo Grass to find that it benefited from a weekly trim, and a regular deep water and fertilise. I bought a bag of "Weed'n'Feed" from you-know-where, and the result is obvious.

Now to see if I can have the same result with the much more extensive rear lawn, and perhaps even the grass on the verge.

I love a green lawn - so cooling in summer.
In our 3 homes we've had; firstly a buffalo lawn, then a kikuyu lawn and now we have blue couch.
The blue couch is sooooo beautifully soft and I never have to water it to keep it green - but I spy nutgrass and paspalum popping up!
Remember when Don Burke told everyone to dig up their lawns!
