I'm on board with all of that. Put some starter down this evening, overseeded and watered. I'm aerating on the 22nd. I was going to wait until I aerated before putting starter and seed down but the weather is good and I want to push this seed now and get some roots in before Thanksgiving. Even if the aerating messes with some of the seedlings, it's thin enough in some areas that it's worth the potential damage. The starter was just whatever Scott's product had the most phosphorus. It was 25-24-9 I think? I've got a couple bags of organic 9-2-2 that I'll do after Thanksgiving and maybe once more just after that final mow of the season. The upside is that it's practically impossible to torch the lawn with this stuff, even if you go overboard.
I had to apply for a permit with the city to water daily for two weeks because of the water ban. So the seed and soil will definitely get enough water. I spot sprayed the clover and broad leaf stuff. Had to find some good herbicide outside of the province because Dougie only wants to talk about sex ed and not bullshit pesticide/herbicide bans.
Interesting shit about the cornmeal. I'll definitely look into that. And yeah, those Fiskar weeders are great for big weeds with deep roots but they do more damage than help when it comes to average weeds. The Killex wrecked the clover and has done some damage to the broad leaf stuff but it's only been 5 days and it should keep doing it's thing for another week before the final results are in.
The guy with the best lawn walked by as I was fertilizing tonight and said his lawn is all natural. I murdered him.
