    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    You don't necessarily need to remove it...if you kill it and then scalp it down pretty much low as possible it can make a good seed bed to hold the seed in. If its soooo thick that you need to remove it, then maybe you should. Those crabgrass roots get thick and dense...try to pull one plant out and see how much soil comes up with the roots, it will be a good amount.

    How quick do those plugs spread in a season? He is going to need A LOT of plugs to get any type of coverage. I know nothing about Zoysia, but at this point for Lava, I wouldn't eliminate anything. Seems like something low input is needed there.

    Aug 1988 is interesting-its mentioned a lot on the forum for the Dews. The first 2 weeks looked pretty warm for sure. Looks like it was an abrupt change for the second half of the month, even dropped into the 30's on 8/23 at MVL.

    Heavy lawns here in SVT for early AUG. Just enough rains to keep most lawns around here green all summer so far. Guess the nonstop, relentless dews have helped retain moisture Sorry Lava....your pics in the other thread look bad..not sure what the heck is going on over there on that moonscape.

    50F on the nose last night. ALY has upper 70's pretty much for the next week--nothing above 80 with most nights in the 50's--maybe it does get a little bit dewey mid next week, but i will take this if it pans out.

    July pattern(s) and discussion

    There is no liquid from snowfall in that data--which is why its so low I assume.

    I moved back to the East Coast in April '09, i moved into a townhouse in the the farmlands of SEPA with a pool in the complex--full sun. I just remember the pool was freezing even into August. Pool temps of yore.

    In July, a lawn that is green is a win. Never going to have the same color as green up in April/May

    85F, 88F, 85F for the 3 day heatwave here. 77 dew was impressive, but just last year was more impressive. July 2018 DDH had 5 straight 90+ days, this year they didnt hit 90F once during this 3 day stretch looks like, although close--- 89F/89F/86F.

    85F yesterday and 88F today...definitely soupy out today, but no 90s this year so far. Did a day trip to the in laws cabin in the eastern part of the Daks on a small lake. Water was about 80F..pretty much right in the sweet zone of what I prefer.

    Green Mtns FTW today keeping it mostly cloudy for most of the day so far. Keeping my house a nice 72-73F with just one AC on the first level. Tomorrow and Sunday probably a different story.

    How old is that portion of the lawn? I dont think its thatch, but you would need to cut a chunk out a get a side view to see for a thatch build up. Whats the grass type and how much sun does the area get? That would be important to know. Looks like a blend of grass types. Just looking not knowing any of those details its looks like a good amount of fine fescue in that mix--its very thin bladed and normally included in alot of northern mix seed blends. Fine fescue does not like heat and sunny spots---- it's a shade grass. Even with a good amount of rain, it can still go brown in summer in full sun areas.

    Yep, I agree. I actually would appreciate some clouds in the afternoon to keep the house cooler and moderate the solar heating as I don't have much afternoon shade at my house. But with mostly low dews, even the sunny skies hasn't been oppressive. Last 3 days were 75F, 77F, 80F---perfect.

    I know CoastalWx jokes how it "clouds up by 10am" near the Greens, but this has been a nice long stretch of pretty clear skies(outside of storms/rain events) at least down here. No orographic clouds to speak of it seems for a the past few weeks.
