An Indianapolis suburbs lawn reel mowed at 22mm (~15/16in). Front yard is sod from the builder of the house, the backyard is bewitched KBG.

2019 Lawn Journal + Renovation
Goals for 2020:
- Reduce my inputs (aka move more into maintenance)
- Plan to use XGRN thru the year. I liked the color response from it.
- Redo the front the of house landscape
- Finish one irrigation zone (HVAC side)
- Maybe renovate the front right section.
It was a mild winter. The front northern mix did really good. The backyard renovation area looks ok, but it need nitrogen.
I could not resist anymore and mowed the lawn. We had a few days above 50F and it was nice to play outside with the kids. I had to rush to buy some gasoline before a rain storm. I dont know my HOC. It was the same as last year.
The front yard had clippings in the 0.5in. Not a lot of them, but it is growing. The renovation area of the backyard had zero clippings. The non renovated sections did and color looks good. From experience and just looking at the clippings I know the renovation needs nitrogen. Temps are supposed to drop again this weekend, but after that I will do the soil sampling, drop MAP and some AMS.
The phone "corrected" the lighting in the backyard and it makes the image look ugly.
