Re: Powered Reel Mower

A good starter reel mower is a Mclane. It has an traction drive wheel that would have no problem on your slope.

Re: Edging Ideas

Thanks! I took off the axels. I had a couple of cracks when it settled but nothing crazy. I added my stain/paint after it was done. here is the color before. It was mixed wrong and had too much red in it.. https://i.postimg.cc/hj0n8Yd4/IMG-5283.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/d1TWVMjH/IMG-0179.jpg

Re: Edging Ideas

I personally made the switch to concrete curbed edging. Did the entire front and back yard.Best decision I ever made. I pressure wash it once a year, then paint it with a concrete/fence stain ( solid) Cheap / Low maintenance and prevents any grass from getting in. https://i.postimg.cc/W4YK4wL3/IMG-0...

Re: Leveling Sand

The HOC and density of the canopy should help you with the type of sand applicator. Seeing how tall your HOC is , I would use a broadcast spreader only for topdressing. Any type of broom, rake or drag will not work ( in my experience ). Top dressing is a light application vs Leveling is a heavy appl...

Re: Scalping Before Green Up...

Just curious,

What is your idea of scalping? Everyone has a different HOC and scalp based off of turf.

To give you a reference, My dormant HOC right now is 9mm (.35 inch) When I scalp its a 3 mm. ( .12 inch)
I have no issues greening up every year.

My opinion, Let er rip tater chip !!!

Re: Weeds in Flowerbed

Call your contractor and have it fixed correctly. Bermuda will grow right through it and you will be hating life... Did he scalp the grass or use a sod cutter?

Re: Jacobsen reel mower

Hey, So your model is a PGM in Command 63280. It is a 2010 year. It should be an 11 blade reel. This is a good deal for $400.00 as long as your drive clutch and engine are good. I have your entire parts and adjustment manual. Parts are available. PM me your email address and I will forward. Nice fin...
