    Anyone know what this tool is called? I would like to get another one. It is what the golf course use and I actually 'borrowed' it from a golf course. It is the best damn tool when spreading sand.

    I still like my long bristle pushbrooms for sanding work.

    Started the process tonight. Scalped the lawn down as low as the tru-cut would go. I had been mowing at 5/8" (3rd notch) for the last couple weeks so it wasn't a huge amount to take off. The front yard barely looks scalped. The backyard shows it more since it's much thicker due to being in full sun all day. I'll throw down the fert (46-0-0 urea) in the morning before we get started. I was gonna throw down the fert tonight but I wasn't sure it was gonna rain...and what do ya know... It's pouring right now as I type this...Doh! It'll get watered in tomorrow after I setup the sprinklers.
    Also, I core aerated the lawn two weeks ago.

    The sand is suppose to be delivered between 8-8:30 tomorrow morning. More pics to come tomorrow.
