Preparing your lawn mower for winter – Pre-winterizer

The freezing temperatures overnight cause problems for fuel in lawn mowers. A great way to start preparing for winter is to use a fuel stabilizer like Sta-Bil so the ethanol in the fuel doesn’t cause any problems. It’s such a simple task, and it prevents loads of problems.

Small engines like lawn mowers are notorious for having carburetor problems with all the ethanol in fuel today. I always use Sta-Bil, and I make sure to get fresh gas once we are nearing our first frost.*

*Except when I did the renovation, in which I got busy with the reno and forgot and had troubles starting the mower the next spring.

Lawn Striping Kentucky Bluegrass – Double Single Single Stripes at 2.5in

A subscriber suggested I try Double Single Single stripes, so I did it! It’s a little confusing at first, but once in the rhythm it’s easy to do.

Lawn stripes don’t require a striping kit, but they sure make them stand out better. In this video I’m mowing at 2.5 inches, mowing at a taller height will also increase the look.

Winterizing your fertilizer and pesticides

Time to get prepared for winter! I won’t be applying much of anything now so it’s time to get it all packed away for winter.

Back to Striping with the Checkmate Striping Kit

I decided to put the checkmate striping kit back on and start striping again. This time I did double single stripes. Lawn striping is easy and I really enjoy the look.

Trying Ironite for the First Time

I added Ironite for the lawn into my fall mix. Using Milorganite gives you plenty of iron, but now that I’m doing synthetic for fall fertilizing I wanted to see how much an effect Ironite will have on the lawn.

Today we are doing more halloween lawn art! It’s simple to do, just cut your grass lower in some areas than others to create a visual picture on your lawn. It doesn’t kill the grass and it really stands out 😉
