Re: Investing for Retirement

Keep expenses low. That was a game changer for me. Paying 1% ER vs .1% can be an astronomical difference over 30 years.

Re: Can anyone help me rest easy?

That is KBG you seeded, correct. It will spread and fill in nicely with fertilizer and water. I wouldn’t worry too much.

Re: Knee Wall Insulation

I have recently went through this exact situation and here is what I did but I know this will bring mixed opinions and reviews. My issue was a bonus room above the garage. The room was always to cold or hot due to the lack of ventilation in the knee walls to the roof, lack of properly installed ins...

Re: Knee Wall Insulation

corneliani Thanks for the reply. There is no soffit. I actually installed the vent baffles just in case I ever add eaves to leave an air gap. For two bucks each I figured that was cheap enough. Cape Cods are notoriously hard to heat and cool. None of my exterior walls have insulation except the kit...

Re: Best equipment for acorn cleanup?

Thank you! Do you know if the bag a nut would pickup the large Bur acorns? They can be quite big. Edit: I see they have multiple types of applications. I bet the black walnut version would work. But he would also need a smaller version for the other types. I’ve never seen it in action but it looks ...

Re: Perennial rye, looking sorry for itself

Have you fertilized to help it fill in? I'm not sure about mowing lower to encourage thickness. Fertilize and water. The thickness in the pictures looks good to my eye.

Re: Perennial rye, looking sorry for itself

What is your season right now in New Zealand @Thelawnmasterproject?

I would dare to say that the stalkiness of ryegrass is fairly normal. I seem to get it every year although on the more mature stand of grass it was less so.

Re: Pennstater’s 2019 Lawn Journal (Starts Page 32)

Lawn is basically asleep. Cut about a week ago and no growth since. I cut today but more so to mulch in the last of the leaves. Maintenance is all done on all the equipment. I've had some deer in the yard nibbling on the burning bushes so I bought bird netting and covered them and the new knock out ...

Re: Knee Wall Insulation

I'm not sure what the black board is. Surprisingly the knee wall area is very dry despite no visible venting anywhere. I'll use the baffles as they pretty cheap. The house has gable vents on each side and a ridge vent. No soffit vents. That's why I've been debating on the need for baffles.

Re: Knee Wall Insulation

Thanks @Grass Clippins. So the Roxul goes up against the L channel and the air gap is just behind the Roxul. I'm definitely confused with all of this. And then you used fir strips to secure it in?

1st picture is where the venting would usually be. In most videos you can see some daylight here.

Knee Wall Insulation

Does anyone know if I need to use baffles on the sloped ceiling before I put insulation there in the knee wall? I can't see daylight when pulling back the insulation where the floor meets the roofline. So I'm not sure if it is venting there. The house does have gable vents. https://i.postimg.cc/8kt6...

Check out the Toro Snowmaster 824 QXE. It's what I bought. Excellent so far.
