Re: Winterize mower do you run them dry or fill them and add sta-bil

The rider I leave whatever is in it at the end of the season. I try to make sure there is nothing in any of the cans except for what I need fo...

Re: SEEK AND DESTROY - Nutsedge, or not, and what to do

Related: If I do some sort of Roundup method, do you pull the patches after they are killed off, or do you just let them die a slow death and then fade into the soil, hopefully being overcome by future overseeding/natural grass spreading? You don’t have to pull. It will be a slow, full, effective k...

Re: SEEK AND DESTROY - Nutsedge, or not, and what to do

I think you can even hit every other blade using RU. I’ve double nitrile gloved and then just quickly went through touching a few leaf tips here and there. Did it pull up easily?

Re: SEEK AND DESTROY - Nutsedge, or not, and what to do

That doesn’t look like nutsedge to me. Almost looks like some type of k31. I would use a touch of roundup on each blade.

Growth has slowed to a crawl. Burning bushes are looking nice though. Wonder why they don’t all go at the same time?

Looks good pennstater2005. Color is great. Do you get lots of leaves in fall?
Thanks. I get a fair amount. Mostly on the lower side of the yard where I haven't renovated. I was too lazy this year to bring leaves to the upper side so I just mulched em in where they lay.

Quick picture from last nights mow. Some clippings but not much. I was thinking of one more urea app but it’s obviously trying to go sleepy so I’ll leave it be.

Re: Is there any good reason to mow at the lowest level for the final mow?

I generally lower a bit but only because I cut around 3.5” most of the year. I believe I’m at 2.5” now and that’s where it’ll stay. As others have said to help prevent snow mold and matting of grass.

Re: No idea what’s causing this

It’s hard to tell from the pics. They almost look like something earthworms would create.
