re: removing 4x4 post from concrete slab - atom1505
That looks like the way to go, because then I could upgrade to 6x6”s. Do you think those post bases would be strong enough to sustain a small load like string lights or a shade sail?...

removing 4x4 post from concrete slab - atom1505
The previous owner of my house installed a small concrete patio on the side of the house. They sunk 3 4x4 posts into the ground at the corners of the concrete. To be clear, the posts are within the perimeter of the slab - not on the outside of the perimeter. One of the posts is warped and I'd like t...

Fertilizing Flower Beds - atom1505
I'm in SELA and have some boxwoods that have started growing a lot over the past couple of weeks. Seems early, but I think I'm going to go ahead and put down fertilizer this weekend. My landscape trees haven't started putting on leaves yet, though. Neither have my hydrangeas. When are you guys going...

Randy Lemmon schedule for centipede - atom1505
This is a spinoff of the other lawn maintenance thread, but I didn't want to hijack. I checked out Randy Lemmon's lawncare schedule, but noticed that he doesn't really say much about its applicability to centipede grass. I've read that centipede grass doesn't take to fertilization as much and has...

re: Bike Recommendations - atom1505
Thanks for the input everyone. I think I’m going to go with the Sirrus SL. If they have rim brakes, I’ll just go with that. ...

re: Bike Recommendations - atom1505
Madisonville. I checked out the Spokesman in Mandeville and they have the Sirrus available, which is why I mentioned it. I'd also like the opportunity to turn this into another fitness activity, so I don't mind spending more on the front end on something fast/quality. I've also deduced from readi...

Bike Recommendations - atom1505
Hi all. My work recently relocated ~3 miles from my house. My dress code is such that I can ride a bike to and from work. So, I’m looking for bike recommendations. I haven’t been as active over the past couple of months as I normally like to be, and my hope is that biking to work 3-4 days a week...

New MSY Friday - atom1505
I have a 5:45 flight to Atlanta on Friday morning and it's my first flight out of the new MSY. I'm checking two bags and I have precheck. For those that been to the new MSY, what time do you think I should get to the airport? I'm staying at a hotel close by, and they have a shuttle that starts to...

re: too late to fertilize grass? - atom1505
Well, I put down 1.5x the recommended Milorganite, so I'll let you know if my yard blows up :lol:. It looks so bad right now that I couldn't wait. My reading here suggests my order was a little backwards, but now I'm going to focus on killing the broad leaf leaves....

too late to fertilize grass? - atom1505
Hi all. I have centipede grass and am in southeast Louisiana. My grass has not been growing vigorously at all, even though I fertilized back in the spring. I got a soil test done a couple of weeks ago and my soil is nitrogen deficient. Is it too late in the year to fertilize again? I would be using ...

re: Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
I called my Stihl shop this morning and the guy told me I'm the second one this month calling with an issue about a Makita 4 stroke ha. Any regrets with the 56 instead of the 86? I will run the Stihl mix in it probably. The guy said if I do that, it doubles the warranty. ...

re: Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
[quote]I thought... 4 stroke. Cool. No mixing. Of course, it's underpowered, weak and generally an all around not good blower. [/quote] Literally my thought process exactly. I could even deal with the underpowered part just because it's general residential stuff, and I don't have to mix gas. I'll...
