watering question

8 posts in this topic

We haven't had rain since for a very long time....early June I think? Now it's been over 100 for several days with no relief in sight. Aside from the obvious solution (move back north!) how often does one water and when?

1" per week. Water early in the day (daybreak is good) and water deep (long and slow instead of short and shallow). Keep your grass fairly long (3").

If your lawn has gone dormant, I would just save your money and wait it out. If its still alive then you can make a difference.

I dind't know they had lawns in Texas. Why is a guy from Texas asking lawn questions on a Minnesota based fishing forum?

Tom7227,

There's nothing wrong with asking questions...I would take a guess and say that Doop used to live up here in the midwest. I dont see any harm in asking for other people's opinion!

Yes there's lawns in Texas!

I'm wondering what kinda turf is it? Bermuda, St Augustine, rye? Seems to me I'd ask around how to treat your species in your environs.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
