Since obviously their are several guys on here into having nice yards I thought I’d start a thread on lawn maintenance and upgrades for simple help tips do’s and don’t s. I’m not a rocket scientist by any means but I’ll gladly share any knowledge I have if anyone has any questions. We’re about to move into a different house for the summer and I’ll be revamping that lawn starting fairly soon from ripping up the grass and leveling it out to adding irrigation and building a water feature in the front flowerbed “Never Attempted This Part confused2” so if theirs any interest we can all share our projects and know how with this thread. If not it will die a sudden death roflmao

I’m still undecided on the type of grass I’ll be laying down but we will figure that out fairly soon, the sod cutter will be fired up in the near future and we will make it look like a disaster zone in short order flag

I’ve got 2 water features, one in front and one in back.

Here you can see the base. A simple galvanized metal 36 or 40 inch ring, filled abs packed the dirt and placed a large stepping block. The fountain on top is probably 400 pounds.

Here’s the finished pic.

This was 2 years ago.I’ll post the current pic and how much the plants have grown.

This is the backyard water feature. Much larger than the front. It’s not completed in this picture, but hopefully will be soon. Water is pumped from the tank into the the tank on the truck and back into the “pond”

My first choice would be Tiffgrand. 2nd and 3rd choice in no particular order would be Tifftuff and Tahoma 31.

One of the best things you can do for your grass is regular mowing.

I'm a big fan of Bermuda. I will never water a yard past the little piece my kids play stuff is in.

Then your mower drives crooked. I could mow like a champ with a beer on my riding mower/lawn tractor whatever you want to call it, but that is a no go with the zero turn.

Let's get this thread rocking! Do y'all get a soil test? What kind of fertilizers are you using. What kind of grass do you have.
