Verticutting, 5/8" hoc, thinking of adding sand and talking southern. Soon you will install bermuda and move to the warm season forum. :-D
Did it help with the washboarding or too soon to tell?
Ha ha. This is really good. Thanks for the good laugh. Leveling with sand is a past project
for me and is likely coming again in another week or so.
As for the wash boarding.. I think its too early to tell but.. I did reel mow after the initial 2 passes of the vertical cutter and cleanup and I did not notice any more of the wash boarding. Late Saturday I decided to go over the area again on a 45 degree angle 2 times. So I think its been cut up pretty bad/good. I still want to go over it some more with the manual thatch rake. I think it is going to fix the problem.
Plan going forward in next week or 2. Please chime if if this is too much or not going to work. Or if you think I am nuts.
Wednesday: Reel mow short as possible. Put down PGR
Thursday: Scarify lawn more with vertical cutter. Clean up tailings with rotary
Friday:Reel mow again short as possible and start spreading sand.
Saturday: Spread 2 dump trucks of sand and level with my drag leveler. Broadcast fert and PRG seed and drag in.
I also want to work on in a core aeration job in the mix as well but might not have time for that.
This is a VERY TALL order for myself. I am a one man deal. It could possibly be a little much.
Nice work ward! How deep did you set the blades?
I would say about 1/2". I wish it would go deeper and the motor could handle that. If I push it too hard the engine bogs down and cuts out.
