Re: Is this really what it sold for?

Yep, there's some really good deals out there if you're patient, and can catch the auctions at the right time, and don't get outbid!

Re: 1st reel mower suggestion

I'll throw this out there that you can get a high HOC cut kit for the Flex 21 from R&R for about $80 IIR. It will allow you to go up to 1" HOC. A great thing about the Flex is that there are ZERO grease zerks. Maintenance is really easy. You'll want to see how many blades are on all of the reels, be...

Does liquid aeration really work?

First, some pictures. I took these yesterday, and I ran out of daylight before I got some after-cut pics. Most of the brown spots are from an uneven cut that I get from the zero-turn, but I gotta work with what I've got right now. The Flex wasn't going to be able to cut down the tall grass, so I had...

Re: Would you return compost that looked like this

Yeah, that's pretty crappy looking compost. I've gotten some mushroom compost and sod farm compost that looked way better. How the hell is a peanut shell supposed to be considered compostable material?

Wow, I didn't realize I hadn't updated my journal since July. I just took a hiatus from getting on many forums, spending time with my family, going on vacation, dealing with Hurricane Dorian, having to put down a longtime family pet, and waiting for a break in the heat.

Re: Long TimeLurker/First Time Poster - Bermuda

I'll chime in with my experience of being a bermuda lawn owner and can answer a few of the questions right off of the bat. If you haven't levelled your lawn, and you're mowing with a rider, you may notice some of the brown spots appearing after your deck has gotten off of the normal plane and is tak...

Re: getting > 1000 lbs of lime help

See if you have a Site One nearby, where you can get your dolomitic lime for ~$9.00 for 50#. YMMV with pricing, but that's what I pay for it. dude? siteone @ $9 / 50lb bag = $0.18/lb tractor supply @ $4.49 / 40 lb bag = $0.12/lb one-third cheaper :crazy: my objective is to get about 1000 lbs of lim...

Re: getting > 1000 lbs of lime help

i guess my question is... what is an acceptable price per 40 lb bag of lawn lime? So far I like the $4.49 per bag price versus the $19 per bag price :? How do I go about finding who else sells lawn lime besides depot, lowes, and tractor supply? See if you have a Site One nearby, where you can get y...

Re: What is the deal with all these damn seed heads

In one word, "nope". Best bet is to get on the chemical exchange subforum, and see if someone has some they want to split, or wait until next Spring when I do the next large split. Why can’t you use glyphosate? Look at the label for chemical mowing :thumbup: I got educated on that subject, and coun...

Re: Lawn Growing Unevenly

Go with sand. You will 100% get weed seeds in top soil; additionally, sand will distribute more evenly into the canopy of the grass. I'm sure you can't go as heavy on the sand leveling on St. Aug as you can with bermuda. It's going to take a couple of sessions for you to get a level lawn that you're...

Re: For noobs considering PGR

If someone wants to adjust their HOC down a smidge and needs to do a little bit of a scalp... but they’ve already got PGR Down.. should you wait and time it right before the PGR is suppose to wear off and scalp? Maybe use the rebound as a way to green back up quicker? My yard was in 4% rebound when...

I also burned some that was growing in cracks of my driveway. There's ...

Soil test results

I received my soil test results yesterday, and I tested the left and right sides of the front yard. I'm not doing any fertility improvements to the back yard this year, due to time and budget constraints. I also collected the samples in March, prior to doing any amendments/fertilization to the prope...
