@kc8qpu092200 The level mix from Super Sod is awesome stuff. But they sure are proud of it price wise.

I've put down 8 super sacks per year for 2 years since buying the house in 05.

Cleaned up all the pieces of wood I had from cutting boards and stuff. Next up building a gate which will be a undertaking for me.

@JRS 572 I bought it at our home and garden show up here. Although I see they really didn’t give me much of a deal on it.

bought a new zero turn mower. It helps me follow the 1/3rd rule . I plan on doing a test tank mix of OTC lawn herbicide- i think it is trimec, with quicksilver, and feature. If it works out. I plan to cut again, then apply. I have minimal weed pressure in the front this year. Just some dollarweeds, sedges, and i think spurge. I have celsuis, but something tells me to save that for later. Don't want to misuse my yearly allocations when I can use an alternative.

Mowed this afternoon.

Filling in nice after sand.

Put down Talstar and Pennant Magnum and some 0-0-2 Micro green Sunday.

I have been putting down .5#N weekly of 46-0-0 as well. Going to try for 2#N this season as my last 2 soil test still show I am deficient.

Built a cover for my gas meter, planted flowers, put down 4 yards of mulch, installed sod in the mud pit left by my drainage project and put out some fert and lime. This weekend kicked my butt!

In 7 days.

The grass that's sticking through is getting a little long:

Any thoughts on how long to wait until first mow? Rotary or Reel? HOC?

First time to level, still nervous that this sand settles in!

Awesome work. That is quite the difference in only seven days. No need to be nervous about the sand. It will be gone before you know it and at that point you will be asking yourself or others just how soon you can do it again. Topdressing with sand is highly addictive. The first round makes such a big difference and it just gets better and better with each round.

@wardconnor funny you replied to the post, you're the cause of ALL of this sand! :lol:

Any thoughts on the timing and height of next cut? I noticed in one of your videos you went 1 week after the topdress but mentioned the rotary picked up lots of sand and stopped. Just curious.

I am about to undertake the same project. I am dreading the work but cannot wait for the results! Great work.

no need to stress at all about it. I would wait a week or 2 or maybe even 3. You will be itching to mow it and you will know when the time is right. I would start with the rotary as I did just to test the waters. I would hate to see the sand kill a reel if you have one.

Sand is so awesome for leveling. I think I may do it this spring if I can get my lawn to thicken up a bit more.

I know it’s one of the older cultivars but I really love my Tifway 419. It just responds quickly to input. I mowed today at .3”. It’s coming through the sand nicely with this warm sunny Florida weather.

I spent my Quarantine in my yard all day yesterday and today. First ever Reel cut with the Jacobsen. Have a slight poa annua problem in the back yard. Treated with Monument and lightly treated the broadleaf with TRIMEC Southern. With all the rain I decided to put another treatment of 19-0-7 pre-emerg. This Celebration is 10 months old. Planning on leveling front in late April.

Sharpened up the edges of my mulch beds today.

I really hate this rubber mulch. It's hard to keep clean. With traditional mulch after you trim bushes and get clippings in your beds you can just cover it with more mulch. Haven't found a good way to clean this yet.
