Re: RobbyBobby Lawn Journal

Sooooo I detatched my St. Aug front yard today. I didn't go very deep to avoid any true damage. Accumulated 4 - 30 gallon trash bags. Honestly, cant say it looks a whole lot different on the majority of it but some it areas got thinned out pretty good. Worst case .... maybe best case - I killed it a...

Re: RobbyBobby Lawn Journal

As predicted - Dallas got destroyed over the course of the morning. I even lost power for a good hour +.

So the Pre-M and MSM is watered in....let’s just hope I did a good broadcast app :)

Re: Austinite's 2019 Lawn Maintenance and Yard Projects Journal

Ignorant question - why do we want to splice the runners? I dethatched a couple weeks back and doing so chopped up most but still have some sizable runners.

Re: How deep do you let rocks lay

Id say unless theyre 6-8 inches below soil, you may have some issues with growth. Especially rocks those size. Purely opinion!

PRG Kill Off

1st “I’m a dumba**” experience in the books! On Jan 18, I sprayed a decent dose of Image on my backyard. I had had positive experiences with it in the past (on Bermuda) so I figured I’d let it knock out all the nutsedge, dollarweed and parsley peirt in the backyard. https://i.postimg.cc/FzZD6G4P/AEB...

Re: Lowering lawn level to sidewalk level?

That roof will be throwing a lot more shade right now then it will be during the growing season. You're absolutely correct! Thank you for dropping this subtle knowledge on me. I took it and google more to learn... was super ignorant on the topic. It looks like that may have been the dagger for the ...

Re: Lowering lawn level to sidewalk level?

My advice is to find out what you have first. Do a 1 inch cut and bag it all. Then rent a flail blade de-thatcher. Go over your entire yard in bother directions and make check to verify you are going 1/2 inch into the soil. Then I would mow at 1 inch again and bag all the thatch. I would tend to be...

Re: Lowering lawn level to sidewalk level?

Have never tried dethatching the St. Aug but everything I’ve read mirrors Spammage . Having observed the sunlight today I’m iffy on Bermuda. 3/4 of the yard gets 7+ hours of sunlight but the other 1/4 might not get more than 2. I sit N/S and my roof provides some unwanted shade. I didn’t get a Pre-M...

Lowering lawn level to sidewalk level?

This doesn't seem like an easy task...but hopefully someone tells me different! My front yard is around 2K worth of St. Aug. The majority of which sits around 3-5 inches above the sidewalk and path to my front door. I am wanting to bring that gap down to flush - .5 in. Am I looking at massive leveli...

Re: RobbyBobby Lawn Journal

For educational purposes... Anyone familiar with what kind of tree these are? I absolutely love them - skinny, tall, green all year. My research points to a Eastern Red Cedar but that my best guess. https://i.postimg.cc/t4FPJYG3/IMG-1445.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/8zkJpwwS/IMG-1447.jpg https://i.post...
