This. Thereís likely groups that will come take it and move to a more remote location. That said, they multiply like, well, rabbits so itís also not the end of the world if itís euthanized humanely either. We have two in our yard but so far no havoc with the plants.

Bruh... I've killed more of those fuggers than I can count. 3 in the last 2 weeks. They are a foking pest. Nothing more. When they're not trying to eat patches in my manicured lawn, they would definitely eat all of my flowers in my garden. They have the highest multiplying rate of all mammals except mice. I invested in a very nice pellet rifle with a scope just to snipe their asses!
Don't even think twice about killing it. Because if you don't, it may just cause the addiction of 12 more 2 weeks from now. With a nest right in your yard...

Get a hula hoe or weed digger. If you don’t want to shell out for one, a flathead screwdriver makes it a lot easier to get at the root.

Not an option here in the people’s republic of California. Can’t shoot pests or discharge a projectile weapon within city limits here. Ridiculous because my backyard was made to shoot a pellet gun. Terraced so we multiple backstops and I have a pellet trap target so you’d literally have to be enormously careless or trying to hit a neighbor’s property to do so.

But it’s ok, because the rule I gave the kids is that anything living they shoot, they’ve gotta eat. Hunting is for meat and so best believe if you’re going to plink at lizards for fun, you’re gonna eat one if you hit it.

Getting that terraced bed area clear of tan bark, cultivating soil and adding in soil amendment to get ready to plant vegetables and herbs that are growing in seed trays inside right now. Need that damn parsley to flower so I can get seeds before ripping it out. Trellis and hoops are for cucumber and tomatoes.

I hear ya. I had 2 babies that got caught up under my Husqvarna because the rabbits decided to have babies right in the lawn. So far the rabbit has been in the hose box for 3 days.

I hear ya. Iíd remove the box with him in it and take it to a county park or similar and let him go there. I deal with the same stuff with groundhogs. Also been fighting off a robin this spring that wants to fight its reflection in my windows. It pecks away at the glass like a woodpecker and shits all over the place. Right now Iím rocking 4 helium balloons tied down by the windows to keep it at bay. Works for now.

For the rabbits, Iíve also just recently tried some Irish spring soap in the flower beds. Supposedly they donít like that. Weíll see! Good luck.

Either somebody loaded the wrong bags at the store, or at the plant. Those aren't the same color.

No, I don't work for Scott's, and don't knowingly have their stock.

My only issue so far with Scott's is that I left a few bags for several weeks/months on teh side of the house because I didn't need them. Then I went to spread and they were all clumped up with white moss. I kicked that around so the sun could hit it and a week later the moss was gone.

I loaded them myself straight off the pallet at Home Depot into my truck. Iíve called (and hung up after being on hold for over 20 minutes waiting to connect), texted their number, and E-mailed... no responses since. Frustrating is an understatement.

Does peppermint oil work at keeping rabbits away? Might be a more humane thing to try.

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"
