    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    As Gene said, before I moved to VT I noticed a lot of Bamboo in SE PA. Looked to be getting out of control in spots. Definitely pretty invasive down there.

    I'm more of a mulch guy, but that does look pretty good.

    Yea, didn't realize some states banned it. I mean it makes sense, there is no need to apply it unless you soil is deficient or your starting a new lawn from scratch. And if you have a soil test that proves your low in P, then you can use it, even in the banned states.

    You may be right and as Julian said in NY he was having trouble. Seems some states have the ban. Most Starter Fertilizers have a pretty high phosphorus count as its important in establishing a new lawn. They are normally like 18-24-12 or something in that range. The middle number(phosphorous) is normally 24 or 25 or so. I havent used phosphorous since 2009 when I redid my while lawn from scratch so I haven't really had the need for phosphorus in fert, so guess things have gotten strict since then. I do mostly organic now if I can, but will do some synthetic Nitrogen drops in the fall.

    Lesco makes ferts with phosphorous. They also make them without too.

    2.02" last night caused some issues down here in the valley. Snowpack i noticed was pretty meager actually on my drive up to Stratton on Saturday, so could have been worse I guess. I wasnt expecting 2-3 inches of rain either that fell here up through RUT area.

    NWS CAR tweeted out a graphic---looks like they are in 9th place for 1" or greater, but only need 8 days to get to the #1 spot. So it seems like a lock.

    Yes, I meant to mention that I could see people enjoying the Spring skiing, empty crowds, etc--that is a perk. I'm not a die hard and someone who only got out about 8-10 times this year and mostly because my kids started their junior program in school. Non spring skiing related, the day to day weather is pretty crappy for the most part. Speaking of kids skiing--was thinking of asking you, or @mreaves, @borderwx (I think VT natives?) or anyone else really, is it normal for most schools in VT to give half days during the winter months 1 day a week to go skiing? Its cool that they do that around here for grades K-12, nice for kids to be able to get out there and enjoy what the local geography has to offer. I was curious how many school districts offered that around VT-guessing mainly ones within a somewhat close proximity to a local hill--no idea.

    Growing up in the Mid-Atl, April is probably the only month I would swap vs here in VT. Maybe early May I guess too sometimes. The rest I would take VT over there, and its not really that close honestly comparing month to month for me. Definitely heard some complaining about the wind/cold/snow this morning dropping the kids off. Non Weenies are for sure over it--and we don't even have any snow left on the ground here and had only like half an inch this morning! ha
