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...

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

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...

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...
