    Heh! Oops ... Came out this morning to a light but even coating of frost on the front yard. Thanks to others for the guidance but the answer on grass seed this late is now plain: Nope!

    Your opinions, please ... I see no freezing overnight temps prog'd for the next 8-10 days or so. How say you on putting down grass seed this late? Any hope of survival? Thanks in advance!

    Yes, I've noticed the same about the leaves. My property is well-treed, as are my neighbors' yards; some are browning and some are not. I came back from my 4 day weekend trip to find the front yard covered with leaves and the back yard peppered as well. Looks like "leaf madness" has begun earlier than normal this year.

    Re: thistles ... Pull or dig carefully; they can have very long roots and will re-sprout if you leave too much in the ground.

    That may be the ultimate solution but my neighbor and I think there's an easier way. I just need someone to confirm our thinking and do the work.

    Hey there lawnkeepers, farmers and other growers, I need some help with a problem. I have a groundwater problem in my lower yard** that needs remediation via some channeling and excavation. Who does this kind of work? I've talked to a couple "landscape" companies only to find that landscaper now only means "we mow lawns." My project is way too small for an engineering company and a bit too big for my neighbor and I to undertake on our own. Any guidance, direction or company leads appreciated with thanks. Reply here or via PM as it suits. ** Note that this problem does NOT involve any structures so basement waterproofers, etc are out of the discussion as well.

    6/1-6/4 Heavy rain, flash flooding threat

    Anybody else watching that storm center over the Appalachians and West Va.? It's just been sitting there percolating without moving north or east for about six hours. They be getting pasted on the ground.

    For barn swallows, the forked tail and orange throat area should be ID giveaways. Also, the upper body and head may (usually) have a bluish shade. At dusk, the uninformed may confuse swooping swallows with small bats.

    Indeed. I've been having some outdoor work done on the house, and the crew worked through the rainy days. This afternoon one of them observed that today, the day with the worst forecast, turned out to be the best work day since Monday. They kicked some serious butt today.
