Re: Landscape design consult

I had mine done for my full lot. It was $300 through a local nursery, and then they'll credit you the $300 on labor if you schedule them for work (I have yet to find a way to take advantage of this without spending thousands including materials, trip costs, and other fees). Make sure it's a place t...

Who's the crazy guy that's been at the end of @wardconnor's videos? I feel like I'm out of the loop, like I missed the video where this started.

Re: kds' lawn and introduction!

Had a good mow tonight. Of course I've been super busy so I still haven't been able to keep up on things as much as I should have so things were a little overgrown, not to mention the maple tree seed pods started germinating so I had a bunch of volunteer trees all over. But things are filling in qui...

Re: Upright greenish/brownish leafy weed ID

@ISU I like your username 👍🏻

Yeah, the maple seed pods were out of control this year. I've only been in this house for 3 years but it's still the worse I've seen it yet.

Re: Upright greenish/brownish leafy weed ID

@SNOWBOB11 @Miggity Yes! I have a crap ton of maple trees and I have a crap ton of maple trees so I bet that's what it is since I had 3x more seed pods than usual. I also have a ton of cottonwood seeds that are sprouting, it's even sprouting in the welcome mat.

Upright greenish/brownish leafy weed ID

This one is throwing me off using the weed ID websites... I can't seem to get the right leaf/color combination to find out which weed this is. Any ideas? I've never seen this one before but it is all over my front yard and it is plentiful. https://i.imgur.com/wKiCtmM.jpg https://i.imgur.com/He2mR41....

Not the greatest mow tonight... I couldn't even mow in a straight line to save my life. The cut on the lot line was like a crooked haircut that can't be fixed... https://i.imgur.com/rnL3bXM.jpg After raining day after day, it's been clear for a day and a half or so now. I've not only been straight-u...

What's creating these holes? Rabbits?

This is the third hole I've found in as many weeks in an area I'm trying to rehab. Are these rabbits causing this?

Poke. I know, I've been doing a poor job of posting this year :( A lot of my weekends have been occupied by other things so my week nights have been my only opportunities to do things, and there are a lot of things competing for attention in that ~5-hour window. I'm working on reigning in my to-do ...

Re: What did you do with your landscaping today?

Made a new trenched edge to extend the beds about two feet. Removed the old brick edging.

Re: kds' lawn and introduction!

I planted a flagpole today! It's a 20' Uncommon USA Presidential Series flagpole . I found a local store that carried it for a lower price than direct from the factory and free delivery. We've been in a bit of a rainy weather pattern lately, so imagine my surprise when I saw on the Ring doorbell tha...

Re: What did you do with your landscaping today?

bencrabtree27 I could have sworn he gave me a quote of $12.50 per linear foot but I just got the detailed quote and it looks like he quoted me at $19/linear ft for 75 linear ft, total of $1510.50 with tax. That comes stamped, colored, sealed, and a 10-year warranty. I think I'm still gravitating to...

Re: What did you do with your landscaping today?

bencrabtree27 I didn't even think about the size of a new flowerbed vs. a mature flowerbed, you make a very good point. I'm hopefully going to start planting my flowerbeds this year and I'm stuck between a bare dug edge, a metal edge, or a stamped/colored curb edge. I have a curbing guy coming by i...

Re: What did you do with your landscaping today?

That looks great, @bencrabtree27! Are you going to keep the bed edges natural/bare or do you have other plans for that?
