Thanks for your article!

Do you reccomend a power raking, aerating? I live in Colorado -- drought and have lots of dry grass.

When applying Ringer fert do I have to worry about "burning" the lawn?

Also, any comments about the electric mowers? Do any have a battery instead of a cord?

aerating: really good if you use chemical fertilizers, and if you intend to water improperly.

If you do everything right, the worms will be your aerators.

I usually apply less fertilizer just for that reason. So that might be why I have never seen any burn. As with anything, too much can burn. But since it is a slow release, it would have to be an awful lot!

Electric mowers: sometimes I'm tempted to try a cordless, but just haven't felt that temptation enough to actually part with money. Yet.
 
So it takes a day for light to pass through this glass? So this was yesterday's tiny ad?
