I usually use the vigero weed and feed from menards.


This year I used the stuff from the gf's company. They sell product to villages and golf courses. Claims it's the parent company of scotts. My grass looks better than I think it has in the last 12 years. The rain helped, but my god. It's like a shag carpet so thick and green.

If the sod doesnt take, then you wasted a fair bit of money so make sure the roots grow out of the rolled up sod. You can also throw down some seed on the already existing grass to help fill in some patches.
Do I mulch all the time? Or just every so often?

For the sod and straw blanket, should I be using the same seed? Or are there specific bags that work better for one or the other? [Grabs pen/paper].

I would personally do every other time. If you start to see it dwindling then up it to every time.

Use the same seed. Just make sure its the same species otherwise it will either not grow right or it will look weird. Like some really dark grass vs some really light looking grass. Usually the ones you find at your local home improvement store carry only the species that exist in your region. But you never know. Midwest usually has kentucky blue and fescue.

Glad to see my thread is still alive. I think this is better than thread title tbh.

I practically live in Chicago now IIRC.

My lawn is in decent shape, and for the record I don't give two fucks about lawncare, but I live in a neighborhood, so by default, I have to. I also have big old trees with exposed roots and they mess up the overall look of the uniformity of the grass. I'm definitely going to branch out to some cheaper priced weed and feed. Dat shag carpet visual doe.

I mulch every cutting unless it's super long because I didn't get to cut it. The grass grows and takes nutrients from the ground which basically takes the dirty away. If you don't put material back down, you will just erode the area. I have plants in the house that the dirt level magically gets lower as the plants grow.

Blankets are overrated and not needed. I just seeded along my driveway a couple weeks ago and it's popping like crazy (except where my crazy neighbor dug it out the other day). Put seed down and put some dirt over the seed. You have to water it daily, at least 2 times if possible until it germinates and starts growing. Then at lease once a day until it's established.


For those that have roots popping up, either trim the roots or fill low areas with dirt and seed. That's what I did and it made my lawn look normal again. They are starting to creep up again so I need to do again.

Maybe just delete the whole thread. This will be the first time in history that a non chicago-an has started the chi chat thread. From someone who doesn't own a vw. Wow.


Wow.




Wow.



I'm ok with it because Frank
