I have it setup 1/8" higher in front currently. Haven't noticed a much difference from level. Maybe I will try the reverse next time for comparison.

Re: Water Hose Recommendations

Someone recommended a Zero-G hose that lies flat until water pressure hits it, thus, no kinks. And it's lighter than a regular hose of the same length. I wish I'd seen that because I had to rush out and buy an emergency replacement that cost me just $10 less at Home Depot for $50. I see Lowes carri...

Re: TN Hawkeye’s Bermuda Adventure

Nice, pretty uniform coverage in just one season. I'm chomping at the bit to get rid of my green/brown crap mix - about to spray out everything green next week - so I'll be documenting in a lawn journal as well.

I think blood meal is around 12-0-0 in npk. The 11 bag at 3lb each will equal a total of 4lb of nitrogen. You could spread it all to your lawn for a 0.4lb of N/sqft. You could also save some for your garden.
Doh, i was thinking bone meal...ignore me.

Re: Hit Blood-Meal jackpot- How to use?

All I know is that it's a great source of organic phosphorus so if your soil is deficient I'd apply it now so it has time to mineralize in the soil and be available to your Fescue during the growing season. If aerated first you can work it down further in the soil profile where it's needed at the ro...

I dont think I've posted this yet, but here's a few:

Top 2 are Spikes Tactical.

Bottom one is a Palmetto State Armory 300BLK pistol.

Sadly, I lost all of these and no longer have them, Mr. ATF man.

Re: Scalping Before Green Up...

Good luck with the procedure. You could always scalp in Feb - see how it came in - and scalp again in April/May if necessary as a reset.

Speedo for ZT and T-bar style mowers?

Anyone have a speedometer (aftermarket) or another way to measure ground speed on variable speed transmission mowers? Would be very helpful in sprayer calibration and achieving uniform application rates. I’m not finding much. Is cell phone GPS sensitive enough to measure 2mph?

Great lessons learned - really appreciate you sharing them. This forum is ridiculous with the high end lawns and it’s easy to always want more, I know. Looking forward to more photos. Did you aerate or do anything else to help with the transition? Good thing it’s been a wet year. I’d hate to try thi...

TN Hawkeye Dude, thanks for documenting your journey and pointing me towards it! I'm in the same boat - although mine's in worse shape currently.

Thank you all for your unique perspectives. I'm going to chew on it all and fortunately I still have some time to figure out what works best for me with my equipment and budget. It's going to be an adventure for me in 2019.
