Grass cut.
« on: May 30, 2020, 03:53:31 PM »
Got my grass cut this morning  and the wife pulling weeds from her flower beds before it got to hot out.
trying to keep up on getting rid of weeds is a pain in the rear. :th_thicon_funny:

Right now the grass is growing fast enough that mowing is required every three to four days. I can get by with weedeating about every tend to twelve days.

same here but my Wife's zero-turn is in the shop for service and new blades so we're running behind (and there's just too much to do with the walk-behind)  :help:

the weedeating needs to be done almost as often - mostly to get rid of that "fuzzy" look around all the places the mowers can't get to (under fencelines, around all the newly plants and trees that my Wife had planted - lots of places)

Spraying bug killer around the foundation of the house this morning. Also made a DIY flea killer for the yard. Fleas are really bad this year here. I think it might be because we really didn't have enough cold weather last winter.

Fixing to make some DIY weed killer to try out this afternoon.

Got to mow again tomorrow! Grass is growing fast around here.

Did same a couple weeks back.
I use some stuff from Tractor supply (the name escapes me now) but its a tannish color liquid you mix only find it at TS and it kills everything.

I have 2 dogs that have free in/out via dog door. Both are on monthly flea/heart worm pills I have 0 fleas in my yard.

1x ea spring I spray the entire yard and  over / under fence line as neighbors have dogs as well.

I have not seen a flea on my dogs in over 10 yrs at one point we had 4 dogs (when married) was the same.

Another problem I have is gophers. The gophers themselves are not the biggest problem, but the dogs digging trying to get the gophers! My father has some really good gopher poison, but I'm hesitant in using it because of the dogs. If they happened to eat it, it would kill them just as fast as it would a gopher.

Any ideas for the gophers?

If you don't want to use the cyanide
peanuts,  get you a few #610 Victor
gopher traps and set out.  You'll want
to put a short length of cable or chain
on them and stake each one out to
keep bigger varmints from carrying off
gopher, trap and all.  Atwood's used to
carry them. The Corsicana store would
probably be the closest.  If not, most
mail order trapping supply places have
them.
Of course, the best thing of all to use
is your neighborhood redtail hawks.

Me too. I broke down a month ago and bought some gopher poison, and forgot I even had it until this morning looking for some pipe tape for that faucet!

Havent needed to mow my in town yard for weeks. Mowed after last rain and with no rain it dont grow. I do not waste water on the lawn.

We will see how the property looks this evening upon arrival. The land has gotten some rain recently so may need to shred that place.

Nope, no lawn watering for me either. If we don't get enough rain and the grass slows down growing, I just back off mowing as often. But we have gotten enough rain that the ground has lots of moisture still in it. So the grass is growing pretty decently right now.
