There any lawn guys out there?
For my lawn, I plant 75% clover and 25% grass. I think there are antler growth grasses also but expensive. My lawn looks beautiful and really brings in the bucks. Gotta be careful not to get the crazy grass that gives the deer CWD though wild animals don't like all that bio-crap. I can't wait untill I have enough money to get a badboy lawnmower. Dull blades aint good either. If mushrooms grow, just pick them and eat them with the deer you harvest.
JJ-more than one fall had be shoveling/snow blowing the first time of the season before the last mowing of the season.
...and I've almost always got some last minute gardening I do between the first few snowfalls and the ground freezing.
btw,the earliest I remember icefishing SE WI is November 4,Rome pond. It was a Saturday and there were dozens of guys out there.
For christ sakes after looking at the 1 week forecast I'm guessing it will be December for the last cut. 60's all week, might hit 70 southern part of the state. I'm only cutting it one more time. I don't care how tall it gets and what the neighbor thinks.
You guys in Wisconsin,
when do you think we can cut the grass for the last time this year? Last year I cut it too early and stored the mower and it grew some more yet. So then I got a mouse nest under the snow right next to the house and then I had a bunch of mice in the house. Do you think this weekend is too early? Will it grow yet.
I like the picture that shows my front yard and part of my neighbor's yard. He takes good care of his grass, too. But this last bit of rain we got (after the 4'th) and the watering I've done turned my grass into a nuclear green color.
And it is very, very thick. Best yard I've ever had.
While I won't be renting the aerator next year, I would certainly do it again in the future. I'd just do it in the spring when the ground is a little more damp than when I did it.
