    May Discobs Thread

    Ended May with 11.96 inches of rain for the month. I am willing to bet there was a bit more than this but my rain gauge could not keep up a few times this last month! That is a crazy amount of rain!

    That was some intense rain. Well over 2 inches the last hour - most in 30 minutes! Insanity! 11.86 for the month! (so far)

    If I remember correctly, 2009/2010 had a winter storm way late in the year due to the Negative NAO.. So not impossible,

    2018 Mid Atlantic Lawn/Garden/Pool Thread

    Sod will need way too much sun. You are likely to need to go with finer fescue like creeping red or others. May want to listen to this. https://ext.vt.edu/lawn-garden/turfandgardentips/tips/turfgrass-varieties-mid-atlantic-lawns-2008.html# Also, some peat and dried and treated manure can do great for fertilizer alternatives. Corn gluten meal can deter weeds once you have a good lawn(not before) and I recommend compost as well. Aerate in the fall, and overseed again then. Fall is the best time to plant! One potential challenge will be fungus and I do not know how to keep that away other than chemicals which I would steer clear of with dogs. Even natural treatments for fungus can be a problem. Weeding is something I would do by hand or just work with after the lawn is doing well. Because it is shaded you may want to test the ph level as well. if you do go with thicker fescue, mow as high as you are comfortable with, but at least 3 inches . For bugs I like permethrin, but use carefully
