@ENC_Lawn
Thanks! its bench set at 1/2" right now. This lawn looks "flat" but it needs to be smoothed out really bad. This will be its 1st full year and i have not sand leveled yet, luckily we just had a ton of rain that settled all the low spots. Thinking im going to do a legit level next month in the back and the front once it really heats up (front gets all sorts of shade and is about a month behind in terms of green up).

Im thinking ill go 3/8" after its smoothed out... :twisted:

@PokeGrande

I forget the exact dims, but its like 35' x 135', if any of my friends or family actually wanted to play football (instead of just watching it) i swear i would paint lines. For now i think im going to order a set of bocce balls, lol.

Yes, thats my race barn i built in the back, its still work in progress but maybe ill post in the garage thread.

My son was able to help with the spring scalp last week on a nice day in Oklahoma City. Would've liked to get a bit lower, but this was the lowest setting on the mower.

We're getting nice and green these days. Put down some GreenTRX about a week ago and she's growing quickly now.

(Also don't know why these look like they're got funky filters going on)

First *real* post. Dethatched, scalped, and mowed at 3/4". Approx 2 year old tifway or tiftuf (builder is unsure lol).

Love the oaks you have growing. How does the bermuda do when the trees have all their leaves out?

Took a quick pic after a run last night. Darkness helps hide the spring dead spot.

It helps that I took the pic in the evening when the sun was low. It is definitely thick though. I did my first PGR app yesterday. I was cutting every other day and was still cutting too much off.

Thanks for the complement.

Gives me something to work very, very hard towards. If you don’t mind me asking, have you leveled, do you reel mow and how many seasons do you have in this lawn? I’m only on season two and sometimes its discouraging to see such awesome lawns and then walk outside. 😂

Thanks, @Philly_Gunner. My lawn got practically destroyed in Hurricane Michael at the end of my second season with the full backyard in Bermuda. I had to sod it in sections over several seasons. I spent all last year working on smoothing out where several stumps were ripped out of the ground and damage from falling trees/fences/neighbor's carport. The hurricane recovery is what brought me to this forum so that is at least one good thing to come out of it. It is still very bumpy and after this last sanding, I realized that I have a lot of organic debris that is breaking down below the surface and settling, so leveling will not stop for several years. Last year I was able to smooth it out enough to get my HOC down to .5" towards the end of the summer. After this latest leveling, I am down to .3" but probably won't keep it there for long. I'm mainly keeping it super low to piss off my neighbor's zoysia that is trying to spread and a few areas of common bermuda that are not enjoying the lower HOC. I use a very old and beat up GM1000 greens mower. I will probably eventually ease it back up to .5" HOC. I got a really good head start this year because it never really went dormant over the winter.
