Costco had the Holly Tone out last weekend. Bought 3 large bags as they go fast (and only $15 per bag). Then remembered how badly that stuff stinks and realized no way I was going to have them sitting in my garage for a couple more weeks while waiting for it to warm up. So, everything that likes Holly Tone in my yard, got some last weekend....right before the 50mph winds showed up and blew it all into my neighbor's yard instead! Ha!

My yard is still ice and snow. No milorganite at the local box stores yet. In fact they haven't quite started stocking for spring yet. Still have another month to go before we can start thinking about that.

Thanks for the heads up. I will have to stop by mine and pick some up.

Dropped Lesco with Dimensions today, right on queue with the blooming forsythias. My lawn struggled over the wet winter and looked ragged compared to prior years due to cutting too low /sigh

I have used a lawn service the last few years. I find that I also need to address a fungus each June before it gets bad. I try to keep it non-pesticide as possible. Spot treatments are safer, although often more work.

I don’t have a farm. I have a suburban yard with ornamental gardens, trees, and hedges. We have numerous birds, squirrels, and bees and they all seem very healthy. I’m trying to keep a park-like yard and use less chemicals each year. I often pick weeds out with a hand tool to avoid more chemicals. Lots of work but the yard is awesome.
