Sending soil samples off to 2 labs today (Waypoint and A&L Great Lakes). Crazy to see the differences in soil consistency between different parts of my yard.
Mowed back with the Edwin at 1.75". Stripes like a dream. And yes, that is pure Triv between those 2 trees
Definitely make sure you give it enough room to grow and recover. I would start cutting at an inch or higher from the scalp. Let me know how that area goes, I'm curious how well this is working for others.jskierko wrote: ↑Fri Apr 16, 2021 9:57 amAlso gonna try to incorporate a little bit of @jrubb42's low cut turf strategy. This is just a test area. Had my bewitched mowed to about 1.5" after the reno last fall and have bounced around between 0.75" to 1" this spring (now that I have a reel). Color hasn't seemed to really be there so I ran the scarifier over the area and scalped it down to just over 0.5". Gonna see how well it bounces back and see if there is an improvement in color.
Pic was taken Tuesday afternoon. Definitely accumulated more into the evening, can't see grass anymore. (I just lacked the motivation to take an updated pic this morning).
Biggest scam in the landscape/irrigation business.jskierko wrote: ↑Sat Apr 24, 2021 1:51 pmOpened up the irrigation system today. Company I use was scheduled to come out on 4/20, but appointment was delayed until 5/25. Decided to do it myself so I don't have to rely on mother nature to water in any apps that need it. Took all of 10 minutes. Haven't tested every zone and adjusted any heads that need it, but man I can't believe I was paying someone to do that.
Also applied SOP at 1.25lbs/K.
