Use this space to note things you might like to remember next season like "Core aerated front lawn on 05/18/21."
This number should match your Annual Total by the end of the season. You may need to adjust the frequency of your applications to finish in time for winter.
Avoid mixing up your sample areas! Print a separate sheet for each sample submitted and write the sample ID in this space.
