Careful - that ended up costing @Colonel K0rn :lol:
I've already been asked what I'm going to add to the yard this year. I'd love to go with a large illuminated tree.

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: RV’s and Travel Trailers

Cory I follow several RV'ers on YouTube. This couple has been going all over the US in their travel trailer, and they have a great channel. This video will give you some great ideas for things you might need, like those x-chocks and Anderson leveling blocks. Good things to start with. https://youtu...

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...

Re: Worried About Bermuda?

LOL, I laughed about the title, then I saw the pictures, then I laughed again. FWIW, I had bermuda runners at least 18" long running off of the parkway out over the curb, and they had tacked down between the curb and the asphalt. 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...

Yeah, that machine looks like it would fit my bill. For under $100, that looks like a good deal. Now maybe I can get these gangly stolons under control!

Could be some minor leaf burn with the fert that's on the surface that hasn't dissolved completely? Did you put down starter fert?

Every Pearl Jam song ever made.
"Yellow Ledbetter" is the epitome of unintelligible lyrics, except for "I don't know whether it's a box or a bag" and a few other lines.

This is one of my favorite videos I found about 7 years ago. The memes are still relevant today.
