    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    My plan is to do my over-seeding on the 7th/8th of September.

    Had my dollar spot treated with a fungicide. It’s already starting to grow out pretty well. This is the second year in a row this has happened in mid to late July. Next year I may just do a preventative treatment in early July.

    Had my fertilizer guy out today and he confirmed my suspicion of dollar spot in my yard. Fungicide going down next week.

    I thought I had it bad too but then yesterday I noticed the little dew webs in the morning. They look like spider webs but vanish in the sun. Dollar Spot. I’m only watering once a week at this point, but I guess even that’s too much with this overnight humidity. Irrigation is off for now.

    Looks like my Sawyer Beetle up thread. Check out my photo and see if it’s the same. I actually sent my photo into the state for confirmation and they said it was a Sawyer Beetle.

    I’ve had situations like this. The leaves are still on the shrub but essentially detached/dead. The plant has focused downward after transplant and abandoned those leaves. A good rain comes along and knocks them all off at once.

    Quickly. A month of growth for a nest could easily be hundreds of YJs or more. You could also pay someone to take care of it. My daughter stepped on a sprinkler box cover and got chased by a swarm last year. I couldn’t get near the thing without them coming out. I hired someone. He wasn’t messing around when he came out. What he pulled out filled the entire valve box. Probably the size of two footballs. He said we caught it early, maybe two weeks old.

    Yeah how much water? You might have overdone it. The good news is that it’s likely ok, you’ll know next spring. Some plants just focus on the their roots when they are transplanted and deleaf. This is especially true when it’s hot like this.

    Probably transplant stress. How much were you watering it?

    July pattern(s) and discussion

    Cool, thanks. That’s what I figured, one time trip. I hiked up once but had a really bad fall on the way down (long story, lots of broken stuff). I had to hike back up a ways and then took the bus down

    How is the cog? I’m thinking of taking my kids on that when we come up next year.

    Red Thread is all over the lawn now. Surprising since we haven’t had too much rain and I have the irrigation off. Must be the humidity.

    How does the install work on those? Did you just take off your old controller and swap in the Rachio? Did you also add the flow meter?

    2019 Golf Thread

    Tip for anyone in MA - Shaker Hills is back to its old glory and they are often running deals to try to get people back in. If you played there within the last few years and were put off by the course conditions, make sure to schedule a visit out there this year. The place is in near pristine condition, like it used to be a decade ago. One warning. It’s very difficult. I’m about a 5 index and I can’t break 80 from the middle tees. Recent course modifications have really made it a demanding track.
