Re: Green-Up Watch

Funny you post this... I'm with @mobiledynamics. I was just noticing that my lawn is looking nice and green, especially compared to my neighbors. I figured it was just the perfect timing of my last nitrogen application :).

Re: 'New' House old lawn Restoration 2020

Hi Kent I think my thing with pre-emergents is that I have avoided chemicals as much as possible my whole adult life. I had planned on getting a degree in turf management at one point but left the field because of all the chemicals. I had another yard that was a weed patch, it came around nicely in...

Re: Happy New Year and 2020 Changes in your Plans

A few changes for me... Need to get soil tested in the spring. Also, doing a large (professional) renovation of my back yard with substantial regrading, new fencing and adding new 12x20' barn for the tractor and related lawn stuff. While the back is getting professional attention, I am planning on u...

Re: 'New' House old lawn Restoration 2020

Masbustelo, Looks like a great project! I'm sure you will get it looking great in no time. One thing I didn't see you mention is pre-M...I'd want to put down a pre-M, like Prodiamine, in the spring. Maybe even hold that seed for the fall and get the weeds under control first with a simple triangle a...

Here is an alternative that I love for older machines. It converts your old rig to a Chromebook and it is very fast.

Re: Growth Stoppage

So I cut last weekend and had some growth. The stopped this week and I wasn't showing any growth, so Urea went down. Interesting, last year it went down on Nov 20th, so about the same time.

Re: 2019: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Grass stopped growing. Put 50 lbs of Urea (46-0-0) down on approx 18.5k. 2.7lbs/k (or 1.2lb N/k if my math is right)...a little heavy, but I hope that is ok. Watered it in with sprinkler.

Mowed and mulched today. Lots and lots of leaves. Nighttime temps in the 20s with 30s in the daytime, but warming trend this week. Still have growth, so holding back on Urea.

Re: 2019: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Lots of rain the last few weeks. Still mowing and mulching a lot of leaves. Urea is ready. First hard frost came on Oct 19, so I'm waiting for the grass to stop to drop it.

Re: Excellent mulching mower recommendations.

I just purchased the CC XT3 GSX after quite a bit of investigation. Upgrading from an older Cub and taking care of 2 hilly acres of lawn and wooded areas.
