Wanted to post a couple pics of a zoysia lawn I take care of and THE HOMEOWNERS new reel mower. Yup, this guy likes a nice lawn and I was able to talk him into buying the mower. Of course after greendoctor talked me into it......thanks Rey. The mower has not been used yet and the empire zoysia in the photo has been maintained with a 21" push and a sharp blade cut at 1 1/2" as well as monthly spoon feeding of nutrients. Also is a photo of the walking boom I made with the help of greendoctor. Ive heard it before and I agree mostly equipment is personal preference and not always right or wrong. With that said I find this areas cookie cutter 5k lawns are a perfect candidate for the walking boom. I can cover the lawn in 5 minutes flat and apply a perfectly calibrated app. especially useful and great results for herbicides. Spray higher volume out of skid for insecticides, fungicides, fertilizers then follow up with lower volume boom for weeds. Again, just my opinion. Anyway, Ive always been a toy collector. p.s. the grass looks slightly different in the photos, its the same lawn same day (today) just different angles and a camera phone.
