Yardian Controller Review

Hey All So I was sent a Yardian controller.. 2? years ago. At first it was pretty awesome. But over time I started noticing software bugs that prevented me from using it. If I started an on demand run it would get stuck in the process. Not sure what the cause was, but it would run fine the first zon...

Re: Rachio 3 Flex Daily

If you haven't already, I would do a real catch cup or tuna can test. Either with a dozen of them or placing the ones you have where you know the least water or the most heat stressed grass is. Without accurately knowing your precip rate the Rachio will be a huge struggle to setup for flex daily. D...

Rachio 3 Flex Daily

Hey Anyone use the flex daily? I just got it and it's making me worried. It seems to want to water only half an inch at a time. We are getting some serious heat this week and it seems like it's not planning on watering enough.. I have it set, it knows my zone puts down 1in per hour. And it says 4% s...

Re: Can I mow early after overseeding?

I mow overseeds as if it was a regular lawn. I didn't even take my striping kit off =P There is more issue to the baby sprouts not getting sunlight than there is being walked on. You just want to water after mowing, not before so it's the least moist as possible to prevent it from getting messy.

Re: Does low mowing really help Kentucky Bluegrass spread (tillering)?

Somewhere I read a study about 2in being the best for KBG to spread. While cutting at 0.5in was really nice, and it gave the appearance of being thick, I don't think it was spreading faster. It is the cutting of the tips of the blades that triggers the grass to spread. So keep spoon feeding urea and...

How do you all do it?!?

Hey All So my first year working a "normal job" and it's killing me. Not the job part but the keeping up with the lawn part. How have you all been doing this!? I knew but didn't really know just how much an advantage owning my own business and working from home was for lawn care but now I REALLY kno...

Re: Anybody going to GIE Expo in Louisville?

I'm going. And my favorite part was having a teen ask if I had any stickers while I was trying to convince an Ego rep to send me some of their products to review =P They never sent me anything but that's OK lol
