How come no matter how hard I work on my lawn with mowing, edging, fertilizing, watering, etc. my lawn looks worse than the $%@# jerk across the street who does NOTHING!

Got the same situation at the lakehouse. Can't seem to grow any grass, but the guy who lives in his RV in California and shows up every 2-3 yrs has a beautiful lawn that me and the neighbor have to cut.
