I sodded 28 pallets of emerald zoysia (can't get from seed) from Foley, AL, and planted another 10K sqft area with zenith seed (side yard opposite of driveway) about 8 years ago. The seed came up and established very well and is still doing well today. But I started with fresh fill topsoil, and I ha...

I did my own, very extensive system. If you go to Rainbird's website, you can download a sheet and draw in your lawn, give your flow and pressure specs, and they will design it for you for free. Of course it will specify Rainbird components. I'm sure the other sprinkler component companies have the ...

I've had Emerald Zoysia (there are many varieties) for about 7 years. I did a lot of research before I got it. The blades are very wiry, so a regular rotary mower frays the grass tips. The grass is so dense, that the frayed tips give a scalped look, even if you only cut 1/8" off the top. A reel mowe...

TD - I agree. Seems messed up that a murder doesn't have to be disclosed.
There is a big dent in the fridge that was in the house, and there is a small walk-through bathroom right off of the kitchen that the doors were pretty busted up. Just makes you wonder.
I just texted back and forth wit...

Casual observations, could be refined for precision
Non-ethanol= .40 more per gallon
.40 X 23 gal (average fill up) = $9 extra
Non-ethanol= 2mpg better fuel economy (my truck)
2mpg X 23 gallons = 46 extra miles per fill
46 miles @18mpg = 2.55 gallons saved
2.55 gallons x 3.50 = $9 vs the $9 ...

if you took enough of the skeg off, instead of the motor bumping and riding over the next obstruction, your prop will take the hit, and destroy it and your internals.

I'm just guessing but it sounds like your battery has built up "memory". I don't know exactly how that happens, but nicad batteries tend to adapt to how you use them. Google can probably explain the science. But if you don't fully discharge them before recharging, they tend to only last as long as t...

along the lines of what someone said about the belt too tight, check under the deck to make sure there isn't someting caught and binding the blade(s). usually that will cause the belt to slip and smoke, but maybe not this time. if it runs great otherwise and only stops when the blades are engaged, g...
