Re: What weed is this? Invading my newly laid St Augustine

Looks like poa trivialis. Could've been a bad area in the sod farm...Maybe see if you have a weed warranty with the new sod? But, pull up as much as you can - I see seed heads already. But I figure a healthy dose of pre-emergent is in your future come next season once your St. Auggie is established.

Re: McLane Reel Mower Questions

When I drop my drive bar, nothing happens as far as changes in the wheels going up or down. Same when I bring the lever up. I tried raising them by loosening the bolt and shimmed underneath the wheels. Tightened it back and still nothing. Am I missing something / anyone had the same issue? Sounds l...

Re: Empire Zoysia - To scalp or not to scalp

In my experience, scalping is a big, dusty task which is best done when you have wet weather coming (2-3 days of rain) and no further threat of frost. Being you're in the the Miami area, as long as your soil temperatures stay greater than 60°, I think it's possible to do it anytime. Apply and surely...

Re: Centipede Mowing Height

Funny - found this thread looking for information regarding reel mowing Centipede. We're looking to move to Coastal North Carolina in a few years and that's the dominant turf of choice in that area. Not a fan of its coarse look, at all. Looks pretty good at the time, Brodgers88 ! Any updates a few y...

Re: HAM Radio

Yes, sir!

I can get into just about all repeaters in the Atlanta metro area. Just shoot me an email and we can coordinate from there.

Re: HAM Radio

AK4AM in the group!

Just joined TLF today and thought I'd see how many other cross-pollinated lawn nut hams were on here.

Would be neat to jump on one of the Atlanta repeaters @RayTL and have a chat!

73 and good DX,

RentalLawn's 2021 Bermuda Lawn

First post! Backstory: All lawn photos before October 2021 were mowed with a mid-2000's 19" Snapper Rotary mower. Kept the blade very sharp all season and varied mowing direction every mow. Keep in mind, this is NOT my own lawn. We rent a townhouse with about 3,000 sq. ft. of Bermuda - of which has...
