Cool that's what I'm thinking.. I just mowed and the clippings weren't very long... I haven't cut more than 1/3 of the lead at once... So if it goes in easy it's wet, and hard to push through it's too dry right?Redtenchu said:I'd do the screwdriver test in those spots.
Txmx, your turf color in the thicker area looks great. What kind of mower are you using? Update your profile with the mower typeTxmx583 said:Haha cool. The areas that are a little brown are usually really green... I think it's just drought stress... I'll aerate and water tonight... Still looks decent but not as dark green all over as normal..
What do you guys generally use for your manual aerators and how often are they used?Iriasj2009 said:Looks great txmx, I'm sure it just needs a good manual aeration and soaking.
I have a pair of the aeration shoes from Amazon... They don't stay in well with the original straps, so I modified mine with zip ties.. it isn't the best system but works decent and the results are pretty good.DetroitRocker said:What do you guys generally use for your manual aerators and how often are they used?Iriasj2009 said:Looks great txmx, I'm sure it just needs a good manual aeration and soaking.
My lawn is actually looking the same right now, even though I am staying on top of it with a 4 - 3 - 3 -4 mowing schedule. I've had my sprinklers off for the better part of August with all the rain we have gotten in DFW over the summer.
I don't know where I can find 46-0-0.... But I'll do some looking!! I'll let you know how it goes, Thanksslomo said:Drop some 46-0-0 and 2 inches of water measured out in tuna cans spread across your lawn. Apply at 2lbs of nitrogen per 1k square feet. Report back in two weeks.
