Re: uts journal 2020

Nice job and documentation! Thank you. Just trying to log everything I do this year so I know it's hard work put to good use at the end :) Exactly, it's easy to forget about all the hard work 6 months to a year from now. I put info in my journal so I don't forget and so others can see what worked o...

Re: beardizzle - 2020 Lawn Journal

Do it! You won't regret it! The density will impress you. When it warms up, you can gradually raise the HOC as necessary, to help maintain the 1/3 rule and have it a little longer when the summer heat hits. Do you think it should go to 2 1/2" or 3" in the summer? Or I suppose, what are your HOCs th...

Re: MOOCH91's 2020 POA TRIV adventure

Try covering the areas to be seeded with cardboard, so the PreM skips off it. They are big, fairly easy to miss with the spreader. I was more concerned about wash-down in to the areas. I suspect I had an issue with a small spring seeding last year because it was downhill within 10' of an area where...

The color is looking good! The cherry blossoms make me feel warm. We still have at least a couple of weeks for the ones in our area to bloom.

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

Fired up the Snapper and bagged the front to pick up leaves, twigs, etc. and cleaned up a few leaves in the back @ 2". Then, I broke out the Folbate and reel mowed the front @ 1.5". I had decent clipping yield on the main front, and some on the front side yard. The front is completely out of dormanc...

Re: SP's thread

Thanks for the detailed follow up on my comments. I can definitely see the parallel between our plights. Zoysia has been the bane of my existence for quite awhile and I've been trying to eradicate it for the most part, but am not in a position to nuke the hellstrip and start over like I did with the...

Re: SP's thread

Then hopefully things stay more blue than muda. Speaking of that, do you have a plan to encourage the kbg to compete or outcompete the Bermuda? My hellstrip in front of my main front lawn (directly in front of my house-left of my driveway) is kbg infested with zoysia. Some of my cultural practices ...

Re: Alex's 2020 Lawn Journal

+1 on the compliments on the beds! I'm still in the process of weeding and need to get it done, too. Thanks for being a motivator. I like the brown mulch the best, too. I changed over from the red about 3 years ago and think it looks more natural than the black.

I feel for you. Maybe you could install some of those thin orange fiberglass snow markers next year to help them improve their aim.

Mowed with push reel mower main front and front side in N-S direction. Balmy 67* and sunny today, which is rare for the end of March. I still need to do my spring clean up.

Re: 2020 | What did you do with your lawn today?

Painted a fair amount of quack grass with roundup gel deodorant. Seems to work well but it’s a b---- trying to make sure I hit everyone one of them. Then just continued waiting for this TTTF to start growing. Last year, I was thinking of trying that with using an acid brush to paint weeds (kinda li...
