re: Army Worms - DrewTheEngineer
Can someone post of picture of the damage caused by these things? Something consumed huge chunks of my St. Aug. back in July. First the tips started turning brown, same as if the grass was drying out (but we getting plenty of rain at the time). Then, the whole blades got brown and died, leaving h...

re: Weeds & sodworms in lawn - DrewTheEngineer
When it comes to Virginia Buttonweed, you almost have to go out and check for them every day. In previously years, I've sprayed it, but this year I decided to go out and pull them up as soon as I see them (especially the little white flowers). It's an enormous pain in the ass. I have neighbors wi...

re: Possible Mold In Lawn - DrewTheEngineer
Do you have St. Aug. grass? Something similar to what you are describing consumed large chunks of my St. Aug. about 6 weeks ago. It first started with the tips looking burnt, and eventually it ate up all the blades, leaving large brown areas. Most of the blades have grown back by now, and it's ju...

re: In ground pools that were flooded....how should they be treated? - DrewTheEngineer
Is the water level below the top of the pool? Do you treat with regular chlorine? If so, since you cant run the pump (I think you mentioned the power is still out), I would dump several gallons of bleach in there. I was without power for 10 days after Gustav, and I dumped about 10 gallons of bl...

re: The Great Flood of 2016: Fill Out Disaster Forms NOW. Link Inside! - DrewTheEngineer
From all of the analysis of the water dispersing, it seems like the height of Alligator Bayou Road turned out to be just right. If it were lower, then the swamp could have been overrun, and the areas below it could have been flooded. If it were higher, there there would have been no run-off into t...
