This area here I killed off in November.

One application is all it took of glysophate and Esplanade ez. Today I fertilizer just on the outside of it to promote fast growth.

Just a quick charity mow. Trying to decide if .4 is too low. I thought it would be greener.

Started at 7:10 this morning. Cleaned up the rest of the plugs from aerating, then started dumping my sand/soil mix. Finally finished around 2p.m. Also put down some 17-17-17 fertilizer. Then watered. Not even close to perfect but I am excited to see how this first round will turn out.

Pulled out a couple of shrubs and pruned some trees. Then used a pull behind dethatcher. It worked ok. Got to get the minions to rake it all up in the morning.
The farm Jack works wonders on shrubs.

Still not all the way awake here yet but scalped at 5/8” a week ago. Raised up to 1” where I hope to stay for the season and gave her a trim today. Exciting to see some green flying off the reel!

First mow with the new to me GM1000. HOC set at 3/4” but want to go lower. Cut down about 15 trees this fall to reduce shade. Watching these areas fill in from last years leveling job.

@Cajun71163, it's greening up nicely. What are you planting it the box gardens?
It was all vegetables but this year it’s just flowers. Trying my hand at Dahlias.

Just finishing power raking my back but as I looked at my surrounding yards I’m thankful for all of the pre-m tips I’ve soaked up the past year since joining. My yard is surrounded by Poa farms but I’ve managed to stay weed free.

Mowed at .625 and edged. Put down some fungicide and sprayed the shrubs and trees with mosquito spray. Looking pretty decent for late March. Hopefully tackle leveling in the next 3-4 weeks bc it needs it BAD!

I started to notice some green yukon peeking up through the dormant grass, so I went ahead with another low cut to pick up any more debris and trim down the poa that sprang up. I did notice 2 dandilions that managed to get going even after doing a pre-em earlier in the month.

I did toss down some starter fertilizer to give the lawn a balanced feeding as it's coming out of dormancy. A week ago I was starting to get concerned since I wasn't seeing any growth at all, but today I am encouraged again. My lawn still looks bad comparrd to everyone else's fescue/bg mix lawns, but I should be catching up quickly over the next month.

Greening and thickening up what seems like almost everyday. Will be flagging all irrigation tomorrow and aerating on Tuesday. Then time for some sand 🙃

Mowed it for the first time. Took about an hour and a half. Maybe I can cut that down some once I get it smoothed out.
