Lawn update [Apr. 18th, 2012|12:58 pm]
Okay, last year, someone - wolfette? - suggested that a bit of lawn food might eliminate moss better than "moss killer". I was skeptical... but what the heck? Well, whoever-it-was was *right*.

Winter time, I spread some fall/winter lawn food around. I think I used a light dose, but how would I know? But I figured, the lawn hadn't been fed in at least two years, so, why not?

Yesterday, I hired someone to mow my lawn. A push mower just wouldn't get through it; it was just too tall, and too dense! They filled my (large!) compost bin, and two more just like it, with grass clippings.

Near as I can tell, drainage has *vastly* improved (it's almost like something is just sucking the water out of the ground...), leaving less puddly bits for moss to grow in.

On the downside, I'm going to have some heavy work ahead of me, digging grass out of my side beds.
