    2018 Mid Atlantic Lawn/Garden/Pool Thread

    I have a small Japanese maple as well as a red bud in the backyard. Neither have started to drop leaves yet. The front doesn’t have problems with any leaves. I faked the front yard last weekend pretty well and was surprised to see the soil was covered by a nice layer of moss. I plan on taking the front yard again this weekend to get the remaining moss up and then throw down the grass seed. I did put fertilizer down in the front at the same time as I did the backyard

    2018 Mid Atlantic Lawn/Garden/Pool Thread

    With the turn to fall weather coming this weekend, is it too late to throw grass seed down in a yard with a thin lawn? It is a relatively small front yard as it is a townhouse, and the yard gets full afternoon sun. In the backyard, I put down a large amount of grass seed, new lawn fertilizer with weed preventative, and covered it with straw last weekend. The seed has germinated nicely, and is now almost 2ish inches in height.

    2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    I have family in Rocky Point, NC which is about 40 or some miles NNE or Wilmington. I sent a message earlier today asking what they are planning on doing. I have not heard back. I am thinking being NNE of Wilmington is not a good location to be right now.

    I’ll be renting. I think I am going to split it with my parents for four hours. They have a 1/4 acre lot. Like you said my little yard won’t take that long. Going out of town this weekend for the week. I guess I’ll shoot for the 25th of this month. If not it would have to be the 8th or September

    Thanks for the tips. I’ll hold off on the fertilizer the. When would you suggest araeting and reseeding. I know fall is best. September, october?

    Thanks for the info. My back gets full morning sun while the front gets full afternoon sun. I plan on spreading some fertilizer with crabgrass and weed control sometime this weekend and raising the mower blade higher. I was cutting it really short and read that short isn’t good to prevent weeds. Any tips for the dogs? I might section of a section of the yard for the dogs until I can get the grass established.

    Anyone have helpful tips for reseeding a yard? I’m in a townhouse with an average townhouse back and front yard. The back is terrible with crabgrass. Also in the mix is having two dogs. I’ve been raking the yard with a garden rake to get up any dead grass. I do bag grass when I cut the yard. I plan on aerating ( never been done) and putting down Scott’s Thick R Lawn. It’s a fertilizer, seed, and soil enhancer in one. I do have some ugly bare patches too. Any suggestions or tips would be great.

    July Discobs Thread

    I've only received 9.5 inches since Saturday (Frederick had its fun in May). What is crazy is that I've had 54.31 inches of precipitation so far this year. Frederick's yearly average is 40.59 inches. We still have 5 and a half months to go!

    Yesterday's paltry .51 puts me at 19.6 for the month.
  12. South and east of 70 did not get nearly the amount we did right around Ft. Detrick
  13. It did feel good to finally be able to cut the grass.
  14. Since last Sunday, I’ve gotten 17.31 inches of rain
