Re: 2020: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Mowed yesterday, went out to the back and weed whacked around the fence line and willow tree we planted 2 years ago. Dropped Milo on reno (read in reno section). I then re-tied the willow and stood it up more, replaced the rickety fence I had around it. Came back to the garage and mixed up 4 gallons...

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno

Day 42, I dropped a light dose of Milo and watered it in. We’ve gotten pop up showers almost daily so I haven’t ran the sprinklers all week until today. Highs will be 90 for the foreseeable future so I’ll be have said sprinklers running unless we get rain

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno

Today is Day 30. Weather wise it’s been seasonable, but the hot temps return at weeks end (90+). Overall I’m satisfied despite the weed pressure.

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno - First Mow

This afternoon I gave the site its first hair cut. Today is Day 26. I took the blades off my Honda and sharpened them, cleaned out the deck to give it as clean as a cut I possibly could. Temps have cooled and will only be 70 tomorrow, I’ve backed off watering. I have a lot of weeds, and I would like...

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno Day 22

Day 22. Yesterday was a good break from the heat, high only got to 80. I’ll be mowing at some point this week. I have certainly got weeds I’ll need to address.

Re: Renovations: Class of 2019 Graduation Day!!!

This was more of starting a brand new lawn from what was a corn field/construction site. Nonetheless, here is the project I did last fall (~5500 sq ft in the back, and 1000 sq ft on the side) https://i.postimg.cc/bGKThKYV/DSC-2868.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/m1SN7kYK/DSC-2869.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/P...

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno-Day 18

Day 18 from original seed down date. Things are filling in nice, I do have some bare spots and a lot of weeds. That was to be expected. I'm happy with how it is filling in. We're due for some storms tonight I'm hoping everything holds firm at this point. High temps close to 90 I'm still water 3x day...

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno-Day 12 Pics

Today would be day 12 from original seed down date. I had a small sliver of the reno I had to throw down more top soil to level out a washout run. We were supposed to get storms today so I had been waiting for those to pass. They never came, and another lesson learned from this is to have the timer ...

Re: 2020: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Last night my daughter and I went out and measured/walked off what will be the *potential* fall renovation area. It was close to 11,000 sq ft. Now I'm looking at our drawing and deciding how to break that down.

I know about when it gets hot in Columbus -- I lived there (N Fourth and E 13 St)
Oh wow close to campus/fairgrounds...it's amazing how much that area has changed in just the last 10-15 years.

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno

This would be Day 9 from my original seed down date and then a couple days after we had the wash out. I’m happy with the germination thus far. The Tenacity app is working as well. There’s some low spots I missed but I don’t want to go walk on the area now. I’m currently watering 3x per day, at 12 mi...

I am so sorry for your loss.
Thanks. We ended up with 5.5” of rain since Monday. The sun finally came out today, and I’ve reseeded and dropped more peat moss.

Here’s to Round 2!

Re: DevilDawg81’s Spring Reno

Mother Nature won last night. We received 3.5” of rain yesterday. I didn’t have a total washout but I certainly have reseeding to do.
