Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

I came home from work today, to a large number of leaves shed by my Norway maple and some from my red maples. It was no surprise, as a lot of trees and shrubs all over the tri-state area had major wind burn from the TS. I need to decide if I want to mulch them in, or bag the next mow, since I have a...

I'm glad the Yardworks spreader worked for you. It looks like you got nice, even coverage.

Re: Nick's L.I. NY tall fescue overseed into PRG

If you can, chain up the generator. After Sandy, I heard of low lifes stealing them in the middle of the night. They would take old beat up lawnmowers and run the engines, so the homeowners wouldn't hear it turn off, to give enough time to do the switcheroo to make their getaway.

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

The moderating temperatures will be short lived. I received a work e-mail at 10:34 AM with a NOAA Heat Advisory Briefing. Temps/humidity will begin increasing over today and tomorrow. Moday-Thursday will be very high. So far, heat indices for M&T are mid-high 90's. I'm glad that I had time to get th...

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

Yesterday, I continued using the sawzall with pruning blade to remove some storm damaged branches laying on the fence. While the battery was charging, I sprayed the front yard with K4L EB and FeATURE at 1.5 tsp and 2 oz. per gallon/1000. The battery finished charging, so I completed round 2 on clean...

@Chris LI Looks like it cleaned up pretty good.
Absolutely! Even without the using Hi Vac bagging blade, it picks up all sorts of twigs, acorns, etc., with the Gator blade.

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

@Chris LI Glad to hear the storm didn’t affect you too much. Your place looks great. I’ve had no power since Tuesday afternoon but luckily no major damage. Oh, man. I hope they get the power back on for you soon! I've been checking the PSEG outage map, and it's getting a little better. It shows the...

@Chris LI I hope everyone is ok. These kind of events tend to put things in perspective. The BEAST is honored! Thank you. We are all OK and are very fortunate to not have lost power. The folks behind us in the development still have generators running. I spent several hours today picking up the rem...

Re: Marks journal 2020

Beautiful! I love them all, especially the lilies (Star Gazers, even more so). I have Black-eyed Susans, too (Rudbeckia, for plant nerds, lol). What are the red and purple flowers? The red ones remind me of Dahlias, but look different. You did sneak a background shot of the lawn in the first one. :m...

Re: Panner's creeping red fescue and PRG Journal

Beautiful property! I would say that it depends on how much patience you have to continue overseeding with PRG. If you're seeing progress with the overseeds, maybe stick it out. If you want uniformity and quicker gratification, smoke it. As you know from experience, the PRG will establish quickly an...

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

No mowing, fert, etc. for the lawn today with the TS blowing us around. Between yesterday and today, we had 0.24" of rain (0.08" & 0.16"). I would say that we had a glancing blow. I hope everyone in our lawn community is OK. We did have a couple of tragedies in our area that I'm aware of, so far, an...

Re: uts journal 2020

Your plan works, too. There's no absolute right/wrong way to do it as long as you don't violate the cardinal rules. As you know, timing with certain things is crucial. On that subject, I would check the label on Tenacity for the seeding interval after spraying. I think you need to get it down ASAP, ...

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

Received 0.87" of rain today and the temperature barely reached 80*. It's 70* now, so tonight's low will most likely be below 70* for the first time in awhile. At least one day of relief.
