    Live in SE Michigan. Our newly planted KBG lawn has this growing throughout. XLR8 didn't seem to harm it. Any idea what it is, and how to get rid of it?
  2. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    We added proper drainage and graded the yard. But when I rains very hard I still get some pooling. And the pooling is where the kentucky blue grass didn't grow (week 3). I re-seeded the bare spots, and used thin layer of manure compost to cover. after the yard dries, and the KBG gets a bit...

    Live in southeast Michigan. This is popping up in my lawn again. I thought it was nutsedge. I used sedgehammer, per instructions, about a week ago, and it didn't seem to affect it. Any ideas?

  5. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Title says it all - I live in the pine barrens in south NJ and the soil in my yard is very very sandy. When I first moved in to my house about 5 years I never had an actual lawn but the weeds were thick enough that when I cut the grass it looked nice, at least it was green. Over the past few...
  6. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    After significant dethatcing, I got down to the soil. I made about 10 passes and lifted up about 11 bags of dead, thick, straw-like thatch. The picture shows what is remaining. What is it? Perennial Grass? Poa Annua? Or something else? Any ideas would help.
  7. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    I have an area of lawn that was dominated by an assortment of crazy weeds, sedge's and annual grasses. Previous owner neglected it for years. I finally bought the evergreen electric dethatcher and after about 10 passes I finally got up all of the thatch that I could. Here is a photo of what is...

    Wondering why I had a soft spot in my lawn today, and when I gave the grass a tug, it's came up like a rug. There were no roots. There was also a hole in the ground underneath, and some animal is digging there. Any ideas? What can I do about it?
  9. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Hi, living in Southeast Michigan. I have this growing in bunches throughout the lawn. Lawn Care company sprayed pre-emergent a while ago, just as the Forsythias were getting yellow. Any idea what it is? Is this a grass, or crabgrass. If it isn't grass, can I treat it with something to get rid...
  10. Plumbing
    There is an area in my lawn that is now muddy. I suspect there is a small leak in the underground pipes. I think if it was a big leak, it would produce a visible hole. But I just have a very wet area. To avoid randomly digging the entire area (which is about 20ft x 10ft), is there a reliable...

    So, I got my hands on this 48" lawn roller where it was left full of water over the winter which expanded, splitting the seam open as per the attached pics. I plan to try to bend this back into shape after heating it with a torch and then weld the seam shut. Has anyone had to do a similar...
  12. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Our lawn has many holes in it, which I am assuming are various animal tunnels. I've attached some photos of a few examples. What is the best way for me to fill these in? They are a hazard and could cause someone to sprain an ankle. Someone told me I should fill them halfway with gravel and...

  14. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Hello, I recently purchased my first home this past fall. Now that we made it to through winter to the spring, we have come to notice that our backyard does not drain well at all. Our yard is not level and we get ponds that last a week in the low spots. We have been looking into different...
  15. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    There are lots of leaves in my yard. See the attached pictures. I want to rake them off the lawn and dump into the cracks of the rocks. My house sits on a small hill of about 1 acre and there are lots of big rocks. Question is: Will the leaves decompose themselves if I dump them amongst the...

    Any ideas on what would be best way to seed grass? I have never actually seeded a lawn before.
  17. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Bought a new house with a yard that was neglected for years. This is in Kansas, so I think USDA zone 5b. There are two areas. One that's shaded which has no grass at all. Then another area that gets moderate amount of sunlight and has some grass. I heard that around labor day is the best...
  18. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Could anyone help me identify what is happening in my lawn. It is in the shade most of the time (you'll notice a lot of moss in there). Just thought I'd mention. In the summer at night, slugs are a common sight. Lawn is all lumpy. Looks like little piles of poop, but I'm pretty sure it's made...
