Good call on the test plot. I thought about it but don't have a large enough yard for it. Interested to see what you think of carbon x. I put mine down this evening and it wanted to clog the spreader

@Sbcgenii per your request bud! Lol

Checked my gauges this morning and received about 2” of free irrigation and more on the way. The wind and rain also dropped a crawfish somehow on my lawn. So maybe 2 weeks?

Thanks for your service. Who will tend to the lawn? Lots of hard work can disappear in a month 😳

I’m back gents! @Sbcgenii In full affect. So I have been in Kentucky for the last ~40 days or so completing my Army training requirement(s) for my commissioning in May. My amazing wife took responsibility of the lawn back in June and she has done an amazing job maintaining it! I love her to death. Nonetheless, the carbon-x didn’t produce much results however, I will be submitting a soil test in a week or two, so we will see.

I hit the ground running early this morning gave her a fresh cut at .44” and applied some chelated iron and T-Nex at rate for both. I have a lot of seed heads and some heat induced stress on the lawn so I am avoiding any N till it cools down some (pre fall). Finally, just giving her .50” of water that she is lacking for the week.

Thank you brother. The wife took care of the lawn while I was gone. (Best Wife ever!) I was going to pay a neighbor to do it but she refused. So she got a crash course on the GM1000 a 1 week and a half before I left.

So are you getting a lawn service after your commission since you will no longer work for a living?

Gave the old GM 1000 a much needed face lift with some rhino liner:



Results will be posted tomorrow when it’s done curing...

Also, changed spark plugs and cleaned the car carb out on my, and my father-in-law’s, weedeater(s).
