Re: jskierko 2021

Wife sent me these pictures of our backyard right after a downpour today. This is maybe the 3rd time I've seen this happen in the 9 years I've lived here. Pop-up showers have been the norm here for the past several days, making any planning or predicting just about impossible. Grass is growing like...

Re: Jagermeister Georgia spring renovation plans

I don't know what frost does to seed. I would use March 15 as a guide then monitor your soil temps and the 15-day weather forecast to pinpoint a drop seed date. I don't think a week here or there matters. I believe in the north, people will throw seed down when the grass has already gone dormant, a...

Re: Renovation guide (cool season)

All, I am planning to re-grade my fescue section in the backyard. The are steep hills and valleys, roots, bumps, etc and so I am thinking about renting a dingo to regrade and then reseed. I would like to do that this winter and address some drainage issues at the same time. I know it is risky to do...

Re: JerseyGreens 2021 - BlueBank KBG Mono - Front (Sophomore Year)

Thanks man! It definitely doesn't take much to stand out in my surroundings. Have to take a page out of your book and Reno the backyard soon. NoMix looks like junk! I was just going to ask what your schedule is for the backyard :D Great question! Probably next Fall for the side yard and then the fo...

Re: PGR + Cool Season Grass

There is also LittlLEAF - https://www.littlleaf.com. I use both and lean towards LittlLEAF, although it does not have precipitation tracking. It contains prior day actuals the following day which Lawntrack has a 2 day lag. LittlLEAF in my opinion is more visually appealing. They are both great web ...

Re: Bf7 2021 Journal - Prosperity / Moonlight SLT / Blue Velvet KBG

I've started to spray about 6 foot of my neighbors yard when i'm weeding. Crabgrass central! He'd sh*t a cheese wheel if he knew my Allett cost more than his car. :lol: that's not a bad idea. Did you see a weed reduction after doing that? in his yard, YES! I killed a ton of his crabgrass. I don't k...

Re: Steffen707's Lawn Journal 2021 Bluebank/Mazama/Bewitched Reno

I think I just discovered this very expensive battery powered Allett doesn't come with a battery.....So i can buy 1 battery that might be able to dethatch my whole yard for $250.00, 2 for $500, or an ego snowblower with 2 batteries for $700.... Guess i just bought a snowblower too! https://www.lowes...

Re: Bf7 2021 Journal - Prosperity / Moonlight SLT / Blue Velvet KBG

I noticed a significant reduction in clippings as well on my front reno, at least by half, and I've been hammering it with fert every week. And this was before the frost this week. I plan to empty out the remaining propeat 13-5-8 and whatevers left of my humic 12 this weekend and call it good with ...

Congrats! I hope you got some kind of discount for buying so close to the off-season. You can put down some sick stripes on your living room carpet in January!
They estimate March/April delivery. ;)

Re: Allett is charging tax to all US States in 2022

A little Birdie told me Allett is going to start charging sales tax to all states in 2022 (already does in SC). I know this doesn't matter, because all of you claim those out of state purchases and send sales tax to your state. :o :shock: :? :lol: :roll: If you want to order call Roland 803-226-503...

Re: Bf7 2021 Journal - Prosperity / Moonlight SLT / Blue Velvet KBG

Mowed at 11/16", same hoc as last mow on Wed 11/3. Barely any clippings in the shade, more clippings in the sun. The sunny areas are still growing. Definitely didn't break the 1/3 rule anywhere, but I was happy that things weren't completely shutdown by the cold nights. Since the freezes killed the...

Re: Steffen707's Lawn Journal 2021 Bluebank/Mazama/Bewitched Reno

I had already texted the Allett USA sales rep and said take me off the list last thursday, its too expensive......... Then yesterday I had to take the 48" deck of my JD GX345 and put my snowblower on. Its a huge pain in the butt twice a year to do this. If I take the deck off in the driveway and sli...

I love my current Allett. It's my swiss army knife. The new machine does look great with a few upgrades. I literally was typing how I couldn't afford the new Allett and my brain said F*CK IT, you only live once. :lol: I called our buddy in South Carolina and threw down the VISA. I'll duke it out wi...
