I’m lucky that I have driveway separating my yard from the weed field next door. I still need to spray mine soon for some weeds. Have clover, creeping Charlie and what I think is nimblewill. I got some Speedzone a couple weeks ago which is basically weedbgon at much higher percentages and goes down at 1oz per thousand square feet.

Mowed the lawn yesterday and edged it. Haven't been watering as much lately, my lawns saying see ya next year.

I'll probably add some Milo along with aerating, dethatching and reseeding in addition to what I did this year for next season. That's as much as I want to spend on my lawn.

With everything going on, I am trying to get the outside landscape in as well. My buddy and I trimmed the trees so I can at least walk under to mow, along with kids not getting slapped in the face when riding their bikes since a few branches were that low, mow the forest down to an acceptable level, and we edged most of the walkways. Couldnt do the curb edge since HP started doing sidewalk work a couple days before we closed. This now pushes me to make sure the sidewalks are power washed to at least kinda match the newly poured sections.

Need to address the canadian thistle that I have in a few areas and just do some weed spraying still. I started reading the link posted about proper lawn care and can already say I made a couple mistakes.

I went from a 4 to a 3 when mowing. I think all I did was kill the batteries in my lawn mower faster and gave the grass an even harder time trying to do anything.

Here is the nice pile that I got a landscape company to take for $60 instead of having to bundle, cut, then buy stickers for so groot would take it.
