    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    Yeah we had our fertilizer company use fungicide last year because it was red thread and dollar spot. No surprise, a billion inches of rain and 90 dews. This year I’m hoping we can just let nature take its course.

    Red thread here. Big time. Probably 10 percent of my lawn. Irrigation is being turned off for a couple cycles until it bakes out.

    What’s the guess for the hottest and driest day next week in central NH? I’m planning out our vacation. Thinking Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday look cooler.

    Wow that’s incredible in only two years.

    Yeah I’d also like to know. That’s good stuff. What’s the plan for weeds, just let them grow too? Clear cut it in the fall?

    Wow. 100x more functional. Doggo seems pleased.

    Over an inch of rain here - the viburnum that were in bloom are all bent over to the ground. Good soaking.

    This is just ideal weather. I’ll take this all the way to September.

    The worst. I try really hard to plant things they don’t like but if they are hungry enough, they will eat anything.

    That’s my thinking exactly. But a lot of people don’t see it that way. They say “I’ll just apply spring and fall and be fine.” Once you have a service and you see how much actually goes into a comprehensive treatment, you quickly realize how much work it is. And yeah, it frees you up to do other stuff. I like working on the perennials and the trees and all my planting beds. That stuff is fun. Spreading nitrogen is not. Btw - I used the hell out of the “call us with issues” service last year with the company I use. All that rain and humidity created all sorts of new problems. They were all over it. I may have also called them once because I saw about 5 little clovers in my lawn

    Impressive. Basically 0 here. It’s been drier than usual in my area. Under 3”

    Looks awesome. Hiring a company to handle all my fertilizing (including trees and shrubs) was the best call I ever made. It’s expensive (vs doing it yourself) but entirely worth it if you are into keeping your lawn healthy.

    Not much. They grow mostly upright and have branches near the ground

    The last two pages of this thread have been awesome. People debating the need for AC interspersed with Wiz having a soliloquy regarding his bufkit rage.

    River birch might be the right choice, depending on the spot you want to put it in.
