Anyone using a Fitbit or other step/heart tracker?

Hey All So I need to get healthy.. Anyone have a current model fitbit? I want to track activity and heart rate but I don't need it to call or anything lol. Although there is a fitbit that you can use as an ewallet too which might be cool. My main concern is will it just work. Part of my issue is I g...

Re: Home security system

I've got a Lorex 4 camera setup and a Nest Outdoor IQ setup. I started with the Lorex - the camera quality was great and having all the angles of the house covered perfect. Installation wasn't hard, the wires are all longer than my house lol. The problem was the actual software. Trying to use it rem...

Comprehensive list of soil test labs

Hey all I want to test and compare soil testing labs. I know there is a sticky with recommended labs but there are tons more out there. If you know of a lab would you mind posting the info here? Preferably with a link to them? 😀 I will be collecting a large sample of soil and do my best to mix it up...

Re: Thatching in spring

Most lawns don't *need* dethatching but IMO dethatching each spring makes it look nicer. The dead blades of grass will naturally decompose so you don't have to, but I've started to really like the look after..

Re: New here, need some help

I would put down a pre-emergent, lime, and fertilize with something synthetic. Which if you are doing pre-emergent and fert, it might as well be a "Step 1" product. I've found the lime + fert combo helps with lime issues. You could also get one of those moss out products as well, the Iron can help k...

Re: Pre M with Spring Seed

I had a company do the same and the lawn was fine. I just watered every day for a week after to help the lawn recover from the stress. Not even sure it really needed that. But I told my wife it did and had them go off every morning during my morning coffee time =P

Re: Snow Mold???

**lightly** rake it up, not raking like raking leaves but more like when you try to fluff your hair. I mean everyone fluffs their hair right? you aren't trying to pull your hair out but just trying to get it to not be matted down.

Re: Tire tracks on front lawn - What would you do?

I've actually debated doing that. Our driveway is falling apart and it would be pretty cool. But it's got a good slope so I'm not sure how slippery it would be. As for the original problem. Honestly, I gave up. I lost about a foot of the lawn so far since the fall due to my wife's parking. I honestl...

Re: Will irrigation keep New grass alive thru Summer

Technically yes, you could seed in the spring. But it's still a harder battle than if you seed in the fall. That being said, it's winter (at least here =P) so if you have the choice over a dead lawn all season or giving it a go, I'd give it a go! Personally I found the seed I planted in the spring d...

Re: Done with the Chapin 20V backpack sprayer

I'll start by saying that my Chapin I've never had any issues, and I use it for everything. Even doing more than one type of the N-Ext products at a time. That being said, the Sprayers Plus backpack sprayer appears to be much better built, and it's designed in a way where internal parts like pumps e...

Re: Sand for topdressing ponding areas?

Play sand is typically sterilized to keep things from growing in it in a sandbox. You want things to grow in your sand so just get masons sand. Well - the sand is cleaned for play sand, but it's not treated with a pre-emergent or something that would affect grass. That being said, it would be cheap...

Re: Should i mulch the leaves before using a lawn sweeper?

Mulch them with the sweeper attached, the sweeper will get the big stuff and some of the mulched bits will stay - healthy balance ;-)

Re: If you were to buy your first sprayer...

So I've got both. The 105ex is better long term, but the chapin being $100 cheaper is a big deal for most. So for home use I'd recommend the chapin if you take care of it. If you beat up stuff or are doing it for pro work then the sprayer's plus 105ex is designed so you can replace parts easily (pum...
