Got tired of dragging sprinklers around, so I calculated out zones with my GPM and made an above ground sprinkler system using in-ground Hunter components on spikes and risers. Able to reuse existing sprinkler heads in multiple zones to cut down on number of items and have them color coded for quick grabs. Still need to spend some time making zone transitions as efficient as possible as well as water measurements so as to not over saturate, but Iím pretty stoked how it all came together! Significantly reduces my watering times.

Tassles on the corn last night!
Jalapenos are getting big
Zucchini were hidden from view, but then I saw these monsters peak out. Too big now for human consumption, but the chickens love them!
No fruit yet on the watermelon ;(
Cactus are sprouting like crazy. We didn't finish the bags we froze last year, and need to start freezing more.
Average 7 eggs a day.

Zombies don't like vegies, right?

Just finished this up a couple weeks ago, my backyard is now completed. Already had a couple good fires, so happy with the way everything turned out.

Do any of you greenthumbs have a preferred chemical for killing Bahia grass/weed that is trying to take over my St. Augustine grass? Found some stuff on Google but was wondering if anyone had first hand success stories.

No first hand success with Bahia. I recommend looking into Image for St. Augustine, or maybe RoundUp for Lawns, to see if either kill Bahia (I donít know). But wait until fall to spray it.

Ive got a Buckhorn Plaintain issue in my backyard I am attempting to remedy through chemical use. Ill follow back up with any and all results.

I was attempting to take out all my poison ivy and vines through manual labor, but its just so tedious and I am sick of the rash, so I have resorted to chemicals on that front too.
The war rages on here.

What Would Yard Freaks Do?

Scenario: next door neighbors are having an open house today. Despite this being one of the top desirable neighborhoods and their house listed almost $20/ft cheaper than the norm for our neighborhood (dammit!), they’ve been having some difficulties selling. Most homes are under contract within the first week with my other neighbor just closing a couple weeks ago. I list the back story as it’s a driver in my reaction.

Listing agent is setting things up for it right now, and my wife and I just got home to see the agent’s car parked in front of our house, but with nearly all four wheels in my grass. Now I’ll say that I bust tail to keep my yard up and is one of the best looking in the neighborhood. That said. The first 10 feet is technically an easement even though I maintain it.

So I ask, WWYFD?

Iíd nicely ask her to move the car off the grass.

You have every right to not only ask her to move. But also ask what made her think it would be okay to do so?

I spend lot's of time, effort and money to keep my yard looking immaculate. And I would be Pissed and definitely speak up.
