I did some digging, it might be a zoysia. It's hard to tell from the pictures honestly.

Just wanted to share that the propagation of hydrangeas worked just using the dig a hole, stick the branch in, bury it and put a brick to keep it down method. Very easy way to multiply your shrubs, plants without paying for more. The one I'm really surprised are the paniculatas as the only YouTube videos out there for propagation are the mop heads or big leafs.

For example here you see the Vanilla Strawberry hydrangea that's white in the middle


Here I removed the brick and you can clearly see the roots developing



More examples from the Limelights hydrangeas

Limelights are starting g to bloom and get huge!


Nikko blue but I guess I didn't put enough soil acidic to make it blue


I believe these are called summer hydrangeas


Anyone know what these are?

I never smell them lol. I'll have to check and report back on the aroma. I'm not sure what varieties these are since they were already here when I moved in

Ugh! Looks like I'll need to dethatch and remove the old dead grass from the fungus earlier. I could mow super low and try to let the lawn recover but I'll risk the lawn browning up because of the summer heat stress

Been wanting to do this since we moved in two years ago. Took out all the overgrown bushes along the back fence and ground the stumps. Had a nice PVC fence installed along the right side and back replacing the chain link, then got 9 yards of top soil to level out the ground where the bushes were.

Come September when it's a bit cooler I'll plant some arborvitaes along the back and the other plan is to add a raised paver patio with a fire pit in the corner behind the swing set. Shit seems like it's taking forever but it's finally coming along.

That turned out really nice. What a big difference and I know how much work that took and I appreciate that! Keep up the great work!

Thanks man. Yeah itís been a tremendous amount of work since I moved in but it will all be worth it once itís finished. Hauling the dirt in this 95 degree weather was pretty brutal I gotta say lol

Off work today so I decided that it was time to dethatch the yard. First time using this tow behind 42" Brinly Dethatcher I picked up last year. Assembly was pretty easy. Only took me 30 minutes



After a few passes






And here's my AgriFab 52" Lawn Sweeper. Love this thing! Very useful in the Fall time to pick up all the leaves. This is also great to use to pick up all the thatch vs raking it up by hand especially with a 1/2 acre. It literally took me and my boys last year from morning till the evening to do what we did this afternoon in about 1.5 hours. After everything was done I had about 10 bags of thatch. That just shows how important it is to dethatch your lawn. Helps let the lawn breath and allow water, fertilizer and nutrients to feed the grass as well as amend the soil

Great post. How do you know when it's time to thatch? I have done just a little area (5x5') in my back yard in the past and got a good amount of 'thatch' and I did it with just a rake.

I'm thinking I need to do my yard because the grass is a little thin in spots. When I do a "pull test", some grass comes up as well. The 'thin' sports aren't real noticeable from more than 3-4' away, but if you get down on your knee and part the grass with your hands, you can tell it's quite thin in certain areas. It almost seems like water and nutrients may not be soaking down to the root as well as it should be and just kind of stagnating on top of the soil thus the reason some grass pulls out when I do a pull test.

Almost indicating the roots could be shallow or something. Need all those nutrients to get down deep!!!

This is my first season more involved with the yard so I have a lot to learn, but have already learned quite a bit from this thread and the lawn care nut and other videos on YouTube.
