Take it a few miles from your house and release it. There is an organic product called Rabbit Scram that works for up to 60 days between applications.

You can also look into Ultrasonic Electronic Repellents that rabbits and rodents don't like, but won't affect dogs or cats that plug into outlets outside and cover up to 5K Sq. Ft.

Just my opinion, but I try to take a humane approach with these kinds of things....even snakes. I've relocated them before. Except for poisonous ones which I will kill.

How important is aerating? Has anyone rented an aerator from Home Depot? (St Augustine)

Been planting loads of shrubs, sod and flowers during covid.

Fertilized with nitrogen yesterday.

Should've aerated before fertilizing! Home Depot's setup is a heck of a lot better than doing it yourself manually. Make sure you got a buddy to help you get it out of the truck when you get home if you don't have a trailer. That sumbitch is heavy.

I don't see how doing it manually is harder thank the HD? I just attach my tow behind aerator to my tractor than let my tractor do all the work?

I have never aerated nor de-thatched my St. Augustine lawn. We have sandy soil that generally does not get compacted.

The University of Florida has some pretty good information about St. Augustine grass and other landscaping components in FL. (IFAS) What we do in South Florida may not be the same as what needs to be done in Central or North Florida.

He may be talking about the ones you walk behind. I ran one of those about 20 years ago helping out a lawn guy on the side for extra money. Looked like a huge tiller, and you basically had to fight it every pass. But man.....it worked beautifully.

I was sore for days!

I'm not into those low lawns I think that belongs on a golf course. For the general most of us cut at 3.5-4"

What are you guys doing for irrigation? I wish I had a built-in, but I'm not going to drop the coin on a place we only intend on being in for another couple years or so. We've got a tiny bit over half an acre that's long and relatively narrow. Closest spigot I have to the grass closest to the street requires me to have ~150ft of hose and I'm just not coming up with a decent solution. I have a total of three spigots (one on each side of the house except the front) and I really can't run more than one of them at a time without significantly reducing the water output of both.

What's a good way to measure water pressure? What should it be? I don't want to have exterior pressure to take care of the yard in a good spot and find that I'm blowing a faucet off inside.

Once pressure is figured out, what's some good hardware? I've seen some YouTube guys taking in-ground sprinkler heads and modifying them to be put on spikes. I really would like to be able to do multiple in series if possible. I'm currently putting one at the end of my hose length and it can take me over two hours to water the whole yards.

We're in a bit of a drought right now with no rain on the horizon. I'm killing myself trying to keep the yard from dying of thirst.

My yard is fully irrigated, but use these for beds. Maybe something similiar?

I out the well in because I was spending a lot on city water for irrigation. I think it was $1,200 back in 2002. Money well spent as I think it has paid for it self a few times over.

Mums are popular out here in OH. Maybe I'll grab a few and put them in my containers?
