    I really need to learn how to say no.
    Astro turf tennis court probably 20 years out of service...
    Hit the moss with some rock salt, waited for a good rain to wash it in and kill it. Then tried my first idea...turned out great!

    At the end of the day it all pays for sandwiches, cookie or muffins, how mulch depends on how you bill it oot.

    Salt brine would probably work better and faster, i didn't have any and was pretty patient waiting for a good rain.
    Sweeper on low rpm and no stopping with it running,consistent speed like fertilizing.

    I've heard that brooms will de-thatch live grass.

    Have you tried it? If so, how did it work?

    If they are set up right, i use them in the spring to remove gravel from lawns but too many passes and you shred the grass.
    I use a static broom (broomer) for dethatching its far less aggressive.
    A scarifying dethatcher is best, it knifes the thatch out and divides the root, grass being perrenial it divides the plant much like dividing your hostas and makes a thicker lawn. Also timing is important. Active growth in the spring or fall is best. Hot and dry stresses it .

    Very few lawns truly need dethatching. And most are a result of cultural practices.

    Aeration is a better way to control thatch than dethatching. It's kinda like the whole landscape fabric thing...for the most part it's a scam.

    I use my broom on the front of my deere 1023 and we have swept lawns. It works really nice.

    And it looks like all the remainder of the hockey season will be played in Canada. I'm not sure why the Penguins and Montreal have to go to Edmonton, rather than playing in Toronto.

    Toronto is the centre of the universe. No one can go there or they'll ruin the chances of the Leafs winning the cup....

    I don't get it. I like most sports but whats the big deal if we don't finish a season, or start another on time. Never mind that baseball still can't get their sh1t together.
    It'll be piped in cheering like a sitcom has, I'm sure it'll sound cheesy.

    I actually got sunburnt yesterday, and I dont ever get sunburnt. We need to get some airplanes back up in the air and some factories going to dirty up this atmosphere again.
