Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

gm560 Ha! Thanks man. We'll see. The lawn isn't quite there yet though IMO. Still dealing with the stress of bringing the HOC down. Stuofsci02 Thanks! Nah, I picked up a JD 220B about a month ago. Cutting at 1.25" now and hoping to drop to 1" by end of August, then .75" by end of September. jrubb42...

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

It’s been a weird week. I don’t think we got as much rain from the tropical storm as I initially anticipated then had a few weak storms pass through. Skipped a few sessions on my Rachio, but I’m starting to notice some drought stress. Giving the lawn .5” of water tomorrow. Also, think I’ll only be m...

Re: Cape Cod, Ma KBG Reno- Going Low

I picked up a JD220B recently from Brad. Great experience. $1k for the mower. $200 for full service, sharpening and new bed knife. $100 for delivery.

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

Did my clean up mow post Isaias and cut it back down to 1.25". Dropped some CX to bring the lawn back to life as well. Took one of those low light shots that I see everyone taking.

Re: Dollar spot????

The pattern looks like dollar spot but I can’t see the blades too well. I have dollar spot going on right now as well. Disease Ex doesn’t touch DS.

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

@JerseyGreens tonight I’m going to switch the front yard over to the reel also. That’s my last holdout. I figured this is my opportunity with the better weather incoming.

I know my yard is going to look rough for a few weeks though. Hoping I have an @jrubb42 type of recovery!

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

@JerseyGreens I think I underestimated how much sun that side yard actually gets, but it also got hit with quite a bit of brown patch, especially in that far corner in front of the Green Giants. I think I've got the BP stopped for now -- just need to feed the lawn out of it.

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

Slowly starting to reel mow the front yard at 1.25” section by section. So far not too bad. This weekend when the temps drop out of the 90s, I’ll switch everything to the reel at 1.25”. Backyard is doing great. Side yard is struggling a bit. Everything needs N — I’m going with a heavy CX app this we...

Re: TTTF & KBG Mow Height Cons

Most lower their heights in the spring and fall 1) because they like the look and 2) because it helps to dry out the turf during cooler, rainy weather (helps avoid disease). Taller grass that is wet and flops over during spring and fall can lead to disease. In any case, the most important thing you ...

Re: Above Average Temps Late Summer & Fall

+1 to what g-man said above. We had above average temps last year, and they were great for renovations. Above average in the fall is not the 90-100 degrees above average in July brings. Washout is a part of any reno. I dealt with it a ton last year (with a trip to Greece sprinkled in there post seed...

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

You're going to love mowing low man. I thought I was addicted to lawn care before mowing low. Not the case. It's so addicting and the compliments are non-stop. Glad you joined the dark-side! :lol: Yeah man! I already love how clean it looks at 1.25". I can only imagine what it will look like when I...

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

Back and side yards seem to be doing okay at 1.25”. Just dealing with a lot of disease at the moment in the side yard. Of course, it doesn’t help when a storm that’s 1-mile in diameter just happens to hit my area at 10pm at night. Can’t win. Azoxy is down. The funny thing is that the front yard seem...

Re: Petra Battery Powered 13 Gallon Pushcart Sprayer

I wish there were more reviews available on their products. I saw John Perry reviewed their 5 gallon sprayer. @Ware maybe you can use some of your clout to review a sample unit or two from them? 😁

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

Thanks @JerseyGreens and @Vtx531! @ericgautier Cutting Green LLC in NJ! Definitely not a steal price wise based on what I see on TLF, but it was delivered, sharpened, serviced and ready to mow. To me that was worth the extra few hundred bucks for sure. Ah, I've seen and contacted them before also. ...
