So your next youtube video is your debt-free scream, am I right?

@cglarsen What do you have that mounted on? Looks like a stander?
Yes. It took some work but fits like a glove.

Re: Anyone else in NC see green through the mud?

I was complaining to a buddy of mine about the rain. He moved here from Seattle 15 yrs ago. He said when he moved from Denver to Seattle, it rained every day for the first 90 days they lived there. That would be hard to take. True, but we get more rainfall than Seattle does per year so I don’t feel...

Re: Matching GPM pump output to spray nozzles

HomerGuy I just finished this rig with a 25 gal tank and 2.2 gpm Northstar pump and 3 TeeJet nozzles is about the limit for that size pump. When I add 5psi check valve strainers I lose too much flow rate but without them it will happily spray 1.4 gpm at 50 psi all day long. 4 nozzles would have bee...

CVS pharmacies will give you a syringe no charge behind the pharmacist counter (normally used for dosing medicine to children - I would not mention you need it for your lawn...)

Re: Nuke and Start Over- Help (Bermuda)

Ok cool, I will try some 3-way. Can I spot spray the clover or should I blanket it?

Will a little help MSO increase penetration?

Re: Worms everywhere

Maybe because our soil has been soaked in the southeast there's more worm activity coming up for air? When they are on the concrete you know all of the soil pore space is full of water.

Re: Nuke and Start Over- Help (Bermuda)

So after two blanket apps of glyphosate at 0.5oz/M there are still pockets of clover that are laughing at me. The stuff doesn't even yellow....what should I do? Go at it with a heavy rate? It's only about 5% of the square footage that hasn't browned out.

Re: Nozzle selection for boomles ATV sprayer?

I am thinking of building about a 3ft boom with 3 nozzles. Can anyone help? Forget about the nozzles for now, but what else would I need? Brackets, nozzle holders, etc. The sprayer I have is rated at 2.1 gpm, 60psi. what would be the best size tubing to use coming off the pump to each nozzle? I Fou...

Re: Ego Power+ Equipment Discussion

Looking at pulling the trigger on the Ego Trimmer Edger Combo with 5Ah battery. Also considering the backpack blower but worried it may not beat my current Stihl BR 380 backpack. The Ego specs are about 25% more CFM but less velocity. Will the EGO move acorns with authority? That's my goal in the fa...

Re: DIY Auto Detailing

I hated claying a car due to the time it took. Changing the process to using the foam cannon as a lubricant, you can speed around the car, one hand feeling for imperfections, one hand claying. I believe the product I use is Meguiars D156. I apply it weekly after your normal car wash and blow 95% dr...

Re: Leveling with sand for the 2nd time. Advice needed.

@Aawickham78

Good idea drying it out. I’d probably need to do it during winter or inside the house with the rain and humidity here. I’m going to throw a good amount down this year to spot level and go from there.

Re: Leveling with sand for the 2nd time. Advice needed.

I always wait until the grass is growing and do a weekly verticutt and then a light topdress with sand using a broadcast spreader. The key is having the grass growing to prevent sand washing. The sand will level itself. If your yard isn't ready for that yet, I would do spot leveling until it is. Ho...
