    Severe Threat June 23rd

    Supercell Composite of 12 in NE NJ, S Rockland Co. I would relax and let this play out.

    Hurricane Sandy OBS (Part ii)

    I live in Ridgewood, NJ. Power is sporadic but slowly coming back, about half the town is still out. If you don't have a place to stay, just about every hotel within a 60 mile radius that has power is book solid for a week. Gas stations are slowly opening up (using generators). My wife came back from Boston on Tuesday night and was unable to fill the car up within 75 miles of home. None of the stations were open. But that was Tuesday. I filled up my car tonight and it took me about a 20 minutes to get gas. No rationing. Little by little, more and more stations are opening up. Yesterday, I saw 2 stations open and the lines were at least 1 hr long (60 cars deep), today there were at least 20 open and the lines were much shorter (20 cars deep).

    Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Broadleaf wise, I have crabgrass, goosegrass and most likely quackgrass, along with clover and some other weeds that I cannot identify (I think it's knotweed). This past spring, broadleaf plantain and dandelions were prevalent only on the part of the lawn that was closest to the road. I did not put down any pre-emergent this year. I never had this problem in the past. It only became quite noticeable this year. I will try to get some pictures here in a few days when I mow.

    When is the best time to put down weed control? For some reason, I have a lot more crab grass growing this year than in years past. I was told by the lady at the nursery to wait for temps to cool down a bit before applying (80 degrees or so, or else the grass will burn). Should I just wait until September?

    That explains a lot. Thanks. What is CEC? Ph test was taken late last year. Soil is slightly acidic (5-5-6.0). They didn't think it was a problem. My blueberry bushes and raspberry bushes are doing very well and I think it's due to the slight acidity. Sun exposure is lower than my front yard (which is doing great BTW) due to shade from the trees. What I'm baffled by is how great the lawn was doing the first 2 years and then all of the sudden it thinned out the way it did. It doesn't look disease ridden or anything, just very thin (very much like a run down town baseball field). I know the drought and water restrictions hampered things last year, but I had a few rain barrels that lasted me 2-3 weeks and held me over. The lawn never browned out last year. I will be working in the yard this weekend and I'll try to take some pictures. Thanks again for the advise.

    Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Great to see this thread picking up again... I need a little advise... About 3 years ago, we renovated the house and had an addition put in. The back yard used to be wooded, but we carved out about a 1000 sq ft space for a yard. We took down trees and shrubs and landscaped the area. The land was very clay based, so the landscapers added sand and top soil. Sod was then put down for the lawn. So now my problem. This past year, the grass looked and felt very thin. It's not lush like it first was 3 years ago. I have always thatched, aerated, fertilized and overseeded (spring and fall) yearly. Is there anything else I can do to get the lawn nice and lush again? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
