    If it killed the high spots, you are taking off too much blade.

    I would put down about 40 of lime before testing again as that would be less than 2/3 of the recommended amount.

    no problem with you breaking it up in 2 or 3 doses.

    what was the organic levels or did you test that?

    I just trimmed them on Tuesday. That pic was taken last August actually. But nothing has really changed other than that I transplanted the two azaleas to the backyard and replaced them with some dwarf gardenias. I also didn't plant any of that sweet potato this year. Geez that stuff grows like crazy. I was pruning it back twice a week.

    Want to trade for a Bluebird 430? It has a new engine.

    What do you mean by to much blade. Too low?

    Only remove 1/3 of the leaf per mowing

    Oh god no! You would have to pay me to take that thing! I have the Classen version of that aerator...the only difference is the color. I'll tell you what, send me a video of you throwing that aerator over a cliff onto concrete and I'll sell the reel to you for $600! ;)

    I am looking for an aerator but I know those two are not it, but for 650 I might take it.
