Played golf in the morning and then gave it a quick double cut before clinic this afternoon. Now if my wife would only let me buy a reel mower.......

Your yard could pass as being REEL Low. I'm impressed

Thanks ! Since I can’t buy a reel, I swapped out the front wheels of my rotary for a roller which has helped to prevent some of the half shaped moons I got before.
Wow! I'd be VERY interested in knowing exactly how you installed the roller. Any way you could post pics or even a vid? I have a rotary and a very bumpy lawn (which will get leveled next year), and this might really help me.
I commonly enjoy the impossible: watching plants grow.

Channeled my inner Bob Ross and painted some unhappy little trees. The pallet consisted of Trimec, Glypho and some Dawn. I don’t know what this weed is but it’s definitely sensitive to that combo. These pics were 4 hours apart.

See how it fades right into nothing. That’s just what you’re looking for.

Gave the lawn a full service double cut. Decided to bump up the HOC from 5/8” to 1” because the heat was burning it up.

Mowed the side where I leveled with sand. Fertilized the same side using 36-0-0 at .50 lbs per 1k. Hoping for a grow in before the end of season. :thumbup:

Cursed the stupid mole in my yard.
Mowed with the manual reel at 1.5", bagging clippings due to fungus. (thank you 90% humidity)
Cursed the mole some more.

I’m out mowing the back and took a quick break to check the weather. WX app says 95 but feels like 103...well I agree! 🥵

It’s been a while so I took the day off and broke out the GM1000. Doubles at 1”HOC. I was going to do diamonds but the heat/humidity said NOPE.

How’s this heat treating your lawn? I’m getting some dormant spots and I have irrigation.

I think it looks shaggy but I’m really trying to hold off on any scalps.

Actually not to bad. I have a couple of stress spots on the front so I raised the reel just a tad (I was at 5/8). The back is cut with a rotary at 2” and looks really good (not awesome) IMHO! I cut the back yesterday and posted in my journal. Will be cutting the front in about 30 min and will post when done...

I have been irrigating twice a week running 3 cycles that auto adjust if we get any rain!

Wow, I’m jealous if that is all you are running your sprinklers. It takes me almost 6 hours to get 1” per station.
