Gave it what I hope is an immune boost to prevent fungus, help fight off pests, potentially help with nematodes, etc.

Rotary mowed at 1.5" to pick up debris & mulch etc after leveling over a month ago, then mowed the backyard for the first time using my Swardman at a bit over 1" HOC. What a machine, super easy to use and maneuver around! I will mow lower tomorrow or Monday and try to maintain at a little under an inch.

Yard still needs at least couple of weeks to fill in.

Mowed my centipede at 1”. Picked up a Chapin 20v on Friday and sprayed Humic, RGS, and Microgreene. Need a dose of 15-0-15 soon. I am just in awe of how my reel mower has transformed the appearance of my lawn. The domination line is coming in nicely as well. Let’s be real, we all do this to make our neighbors look bad :lol:

Mowed for the first time in 6 days. Fertilized last Sunday and its rained 4.5" since, plus temps in the mid 80s. had to run over with the rotary, mow with the reel, use the rotary to pick up clippings, reel again 2x....it was quite the task and its officially PGR time.

Love the domination line. Mine isnt a neighbor but a piece of property the HOA owns and maintains. I wish they would just let me take care of it and discount my yearly fee lol.

Not yet. I'm tempted but I'm sure it's covered in a contract with the guys that keep up the rest of the common area (they do a great job with the fescue). I also really dont want to mow around all those trees.

ImageSeeded 4500sqft of Zenith Zoysia in my backyard. Tilled, dragged to level with a pallet, seeded, rolled, then applications of starter fert, Carbon Earth XSoil, and Pennington Slopemaster mulch. Next month will be repeated posts of me watering.

@cutigers08 I’ve started throwing extra fert/liquid into our cul de sac. If the HOA isn’t gonna take care of it I’ll start using it for experiments and chipping practice :D

Got in a good mow yesterday. Still hitting a lot of sand with the reel, but it’s still cutting well. Planning on a good backlap whenever I can mow without hitting a little sand again.

Just a quick cut in between storms.

I’ll tell you what.. The Toro Recycler is by far the best push mower I’ve ever used. Mowed wet & tall.. took it on the chin like a champ.

Also.. if anyone ever asks what’s the biggest bang for the buck.. it’s Celsius/Certainty for me. I actually have grass to mow now.. not just weeds.

Sprayed my first PGR app with some FEature 6-0-0. 4.5" of rain over 6 days along with temps in the 80s made mowing quite a task yesterday. Lots more rain in the forecast so hopefully the Tnex keeps it manageable until I can mow again. Looks like at minimum 4-5 days if the forecast holds true.
