Weekend Jan 4-6

I've sprayed winter weeds with Roundup for Southern lawns, MSM turf, and MSO. We have a empty lot 0.25 acres next to me, I don't own this but I sprayed Celsius with MSO to back down all the weeds before they find a way to my lawn.

These are the weeds I'm dealing with. Hopefully the mixture I used will kill them.

That's the fanciest Toro recycler I've ever seen. I didn't even know they sold a stand on model... How the hell did you go from a recycler to that? That's like dating a cheerleader as your first girlfriend and dumping her for Kate Upton.
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

:lol: I've been looking at standers all year, I really truly wanted a wright, but I could not justify the price to my wife. I love the Bradley Stander so far and I can't wait to see what kind of cut I will get. Next season I will get a Toro recycler :lol:

Having the whole week at 75 degrees I knew the temperature would be up. I use green cast online and their alert email me that the temperature was 55 on Friday. So I just went with that. It's supposed to rain tomorrow so hopefully I can finish before that happens.

Yes, this is the first year I'm using the N EXT products. I will use them for three years then hopefully I see a significant difference in my soil. I know alot of people put down this product and expect results next month that's not how this is going to work from my understanding.

My application will look like

February-RGS and AIR 8
March RGS and AIR 8
April- September Humic 12 from kelp 4 less
October- RGS and AIR 8
November- RGS and AIR 8

I hope this helps you out.

For this weekend I'm only working on the yard this morning. I've sprayed fertilome over the top 2 in all my flower beds and I've put down my spring application of fertilizer 33-0-0. Here's to the start of the 2019 season.


Image

Fertilizer purchased from a feed store for 13.50 a bag.


Image

I cannot WAIT to get rid of this thing. I'm going to buy a tow spreader with air filled tire sometime this season.

Today I decided to get in the yard. It's been raining off and on for the last few days so I could not accomplish much. This morning I worked on the empty lot on the side of my home. Nobody will ever build a home on it because it's not marketed for sale weird I know. Here's what I done.

Fertilized using some bags I found on sale during the winter


Image

Image

I also spray prodiamine on the whole lot, so maybe I can get rid of some the weeds. Here's the lot it's 0.20 acres

Image

Image

My dilemma is I'm thinking about building another home bigger than what I have now, but I've already invested SO much time and money in this build. So do I buy the extra lot which would then give me 0.75 acres or do I start over build another home? The next home I would look for 3-4 acres and the home size would be from 2500- 3000 sq ft heated. Any advice 🤔

Okay I decided after looking at those pictures I posted it would be a good opportunity for me to back those winter weeds in that area down. I used a few box store concentrate and one commercial. I will update the progress of this area.

Review so far so good on Bradley Stander. I will do a full review of the unit sometime in the summer.

Thanks man. It sure looks like it 😁. Having all my landscaping I now need to find a way to cut different directions with this machine. Here's to a great season.
