I always worry about animals that eat insects and also about the good insects. I'm trying to be bee-conscious.

Grubs can destroy a lawn so I would rather rid the lawn of Grubs than have them ruin my lawn.

Looking for an iron granular for lawns at Lowes...anyone have a link?

Thought Lowes had a good price on this, but they no longer carry it?

With all the recent rain, my grass is really looking good. Glad I got crabgrass preventer down several weeks ago.

Western prairie grass and wildflowers- cut twice a year, cut high and pull weeds by hand. That's on 1.5 acres of non-forested land I have.

Looks great, no cost, no chemicals.

Oh wish it was that easy, but I would be spraying the wild flowers and reseeding.

Another rainy day today, looking forward to sun next week and warmer temps. Definitely hold off on cutting until the grass dries and mow high.
