It’s filling in nicely this season. Definitely low maintenance.

Re: Masport Olympic 660 Reel

I think @ronjon84790 and @TheWoodsman have Masport reel mowers. I had one a few years back, but no longer do. It was a nice reel mower. It was getting old and really needed to be rebuilt. I ended up selling it and buying a Swardman. It's more of a residential/homeowner reel mower. Or maybe in the l...

Re: Ronjon84790 Journal

Lawn looks great! I live in a similar climate and I'm amazed at how awesome your bluegrass looks. That era C-10 is also one of my favorite trucks. Please feel free to post up pics! Thanks! Wiley I’ll take some pics and post them. It has a patina paint job with a clear coat over it. I might paint it...

Re: Ronjon84790 Journal

Thanks! Stuofsci02 I bought a 1983 Chevy C-10 from back East with an LS1/4L60E swap. It was more of a project than I thought, and has been taking up most of my Saturdays. I finally finished it up this weekend, so I should be getting back to mowing more often, and giving the grass the love it deserve...

Re: Ronjon84790 Journal

Mowed at 1.5” HOC. Put down .75n/1k of Milo Greens Grade. I like the stuff, but using 12.5lbs/1k is getting old. I have two more bags, then I’ll move onto another fertilizer. Lawn is looking good for the lack of attention its getting this year. https://i.postimg.cc/1XLr8srZ/BF91-E4-CD-21-BF-4-D55-AD...

Re: Ronjon84790 Journal

Thanks! weirj55 You definitely have to be lawn crazy to mow multiple times a week. I really like my Swardman. It’s not a commercial greens mower, which are built like a tank, but it’s a great residential mower, and it steps up your lawn game. The new upgrades are suppose to make it even better. I’ll...

Re: Ronjon84790 Journal

I'm glad to see it's holding up to the heat. Besides water, have you applied amendments like Hydretain or Soil Moist to help retain moisture in the soil? That 1.5" looks great! I'm struggling to keep that HOC, but it's like an addiction, and I can't let it go up to 2", yet. Only thing I’ve tied so ...

St. George is a great place to live. Getting overcrowded the past couple years. Tons of people moving in.

We have hit 108, but it has cooled down this week. Luckily, water is cheap here for now.

Somebody dropped this off this morning (not as prestigious as TLF LOTM but Mrs. Star is pretty thrilled).
Sweet! Congrats!

Lawn is looking good. I’ve been slacking and only mowing once a week. Clematis and white rose vines are blooming. Spring is sweet! https://i.postimg.cc/W1DnBdmV/7-FA8-F4-C5-57-B8-4-BEB-86-E7-C0-DCFB495-D4-F.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/9FQ1B8rr/8-B0-AF49-E-D098-4-BEB-A0-F6-3-B11301-BDB5-F.jpg https://i....

Re: Swardman 2.1

First time Swardman owner of the 2.1. Is it common when your mower is just sitting, idling near max throttle that the Swardman makes a lot of rattling/vibration noises? The only thing that seems to help is if I turn the throttle down to 3/4. The engine itself is very quiet but this vibration noise ...
