Lawn care thread

Does anyone else like doing lawn care?

With it being 75 degrees yesterday i got the itch but it's still way to early here In ohio.

Last year I did a lawn renovation and figured this would be a great place to post yard care related tips and questions ect.

Here are some pics from last fall

I only like to cut it because I have a 48" walk behind mower and it's fast and powerful, like a snowblower, fun to operate.

I love lawn care. Sadly though out here in the west, I fear we'll see more and more people giving up their lawns for zero scape due to water restrictions.

I’m a sucker for lawn care too. Got into some gardening as well.

I love my lawn. Unfortunately, the grubs like it even more than I do...

Give me some green grass, my rider, ear phones with my tunes and I'm having an afternoon out in the warm sun. It's a bit of an obstacle course now that I've started to plant fruit trees out front but hopefully they'll start giving more fruit and that will make their maintenance not seem as much a chore.

Grubs are easy to get rid of. Either chemical or using a fungus called Milky Spore disease. The Milky Spore multiplies in your lawn and lasts for years.

I actually have a few accounts I take care of. If you think snowblowers can be expensive try checking out what commercial zero turns go for today. I have a Gravely Pro-Turn 100 series.

I have applied nematodes with only limited success. I need to check out this Milky Spore disease...
