In the 50s already officially :D

Hanging on the deck was awesome.  Drank Yuengling tonight. Hard to beat this beer . I drink all and try all but sometimes I old school it . Same goes for PBR and Miller High life . Right now watching DVR'd MTV classic " I want my 80s"  love these old videos.  80s is definitely feel good music man.

Definitely a nice day to be doing anything outside.  With you on the 80's and music, 70's were't bad too.  Yuengling is a decent brew.  However PBR and MHL....   well...  They are right down at the bottom with Hudepohl, who used to sponsor the Cincinnati Reds (I grew up in Ohio). Having lived in Germany for 6+ years, I'm sort of partial to Dinkelaker.  Even a "normal" Romer pils is worth the trip to the largest brewery in the world outside the US.

This IS a sign of a good winter. Like 2009-2010 level excellent, a lot colder and with a Jan 22-24 2016 thrown in for good measure!

Bank on it!

59 was the low here.

Perfect weekend to begin the scorched yard rebuild. A lot of tilling and raking yesterday. Put a batch of seed down this morning.

Mid to late September is ideal for re-seading

This time of year is fine to get started. Mid Sept is a bt late for here. I am in the woods. Need the grass to get established before the leaves come down. Too damn many to do all the removal with a blower, so I mow/mulch periodically until December. Grass needs to take it.

I did a lot of raking of dead spots yesterday. Probably going to aerate and seed in the next 2 weeks.

I decided to rent a tiller. My soil is mostly sand and silt, and has gotten very compacted over the years. It drains excessively well and the combo of full sun on one side of the yard and competition from all the trees makes it very difficult for grass to survive the brutal mid-late summer period. Hopefully I can get this new grass to establish well over the next couple months and develop deeper roots for next Spring.

Last Sept I recall you did the same, I was faked out by the warm weather in Sept and put it off and come later October it turned colder on a dime. 

I am not making the same mistake this year, will over seed in mid Sept regardless of the weather.  Purhcased timers and good sprinklers. Will rent a aerator then.   

How did last years's over-seed and bare spot repair work for you.  I recall we did have rain in the Fall .

When I put seed down I prefer it to not rain too much. I can control the amount of water and not worry about a tropical deluge redistributing the seed before it germinates. Nice thing about using a tiller- plenty of loose soil to rake in the seed. I still topped it off with some straw. I am about 2/3 done with my repair for now. I do it in stages. Depending on how this works out, I may overseed the shady areas in early spring. I can draw a line down the middle of my back yard lol. Full sun on one side, grass always burns to hell, then transitioning to low sun/shade on the other where moss predominates.

Worked really well. This spring my lawn was great. Too hot and dry combined with a too short mow by neighbor kids while on vacation made it in rough shape now.
