Iron: Your Liquid Secret Weapon

What’s up ya’ll? Hope you’re having a successful week! I gotta admit, I got a little out of hand last weekend. I made a pretty decent Spring Lawn Tips video, even included some lawn mower blade sharpening with wicked sparks flying. It was lit.Until I realized that I made multiple compounded rookie mistakes and had to make another video to illustrate my lack of “Attention to Detail” (My US Air Force brethren know that term well).Anyway, it’s Monday now as I type this and I think it’s time to unleash some next level content. I’ve been harping on pre-emergents and soil temps for like 2 months now. It’s time for a change. Seriously, let’s go on the offensive.Below is our next FREE e-book release that we are going to use to bait people into my sales and marketing funnel (blame Josh for that) where I can indoctrinate them into the LCN lifestyle. (I’m not kidding) But since you’re already on...

A Tale of the Temps and What to do with all that Powdered Water (aka snow)

Tale of the Temps: First off, I hate this buzz-kill-cabin-fever-roller-coaster that you guys through the Midwest are feeling right now. No sooner do I clickbait you into watching a video on the new Milo while simultaneously getting you fired up to Throw’er Down… and this happens: Look at these LCNs above. Eric David Greenup (how’d you get that last name Bruh?) is all excited just a few days ago when it’s 70 degrees in the Chicagoland area and he’s getting the jump on his 2018 domination. Then that old rascal Tim Dempski swoops in a few days later and just completely dashes all of his hopes and dreams with a single comment. I’m telling you, peeps on my FaceBook page are pretty raw and blunt sometimes!All kidding aside, I feel for you guys; I really do. But like I said last week - if you did get out and throw down either Milo, starter fert, or most importantly, your first...

Is snow going to ruin the pre-emergent I put down?

What’s up ya’ll. Before we jump into it, if you haven’t already watched my review of the Honda HRX217 self-propelled mower you can find that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVnsjwpMh4Y With that, let’s get started this week with you Cool Season friends.This truly is a funky time of year for you guys up north. You are expecting that April means “Spring” and in many cases, it does. Just last week we saw forsythia blooming at a dude’s yard in New Jersey… I was pretty stoked actually, and ready for you guys to start throwing down! In fact, a good majority of you did!I’ve been getting sad Tweets and Facebook messages that are literally making me cry for you though.A dude named “Harm” from Iowa sent this: Sorry about your luck, Bro. Nice house though.Illinois checking in where Kevin is getting teased, hard. The lawn is just barely visible under that white stuff. It’s completely sickening if I’m honest. My man Brian in Indiana...

What does your lawn look like in the beginning of April?

What’s up ya’ll - welcome to April! Hope you had a wonderful Easter.As I sit down to type this, I’m thinking this one will be short and sweet but I also know that’s nearly impossible for me to do, so as I always say “pack a lunch” and read on…My video this week centered around how lawns look all across America here at the beginning of April. I am always looking for ways to drive home certain points to you, and showing you pics of actual lawns across America is a way to do that - mainly so you can see how you stack up on your own strategy and realize where you sit in the grand scheme of lawn domination.I know that this time of year, ESPECIALLY in early APRIL… most of you are getting jerked around by the weather and your lawns are just not responding as quickly as you had hoped. I know the feeling, I’ve been...

It's Critical GO TIME For Your Lawn

Wait for it ... wait for it ... Yes, it’s once again time for me to appeal to your inner Izzy Mandelbaum and implore you to get out and get nutty, and do it now!But before I do that, did you see this week’s video? I’m talking to all of you right now, Warm Season, Transition and Cool Season.In that video, I show you how to bucket test a battery-powered sprayer (or any sprayer really) and in doing so, figure out how to lay down a consistent liquid application across the lawn. It’s an important lesson to learn so you can be sure that your applications are effective while also being responsible and following label directions.In other words, if you’re going to squirt, you want it to work!Speaking of that, check out this early morning manual lawn squirting I got done today. That’s really my first tip and it’s to you warm season folks: get out and manually water spots...
