  1. Blagged this on a freebie today. A seriously heavy double rake with full pressure adjustments on both brushes. Needs a lot of work to get it back to it's best and some new brushes but too good to turn down. Plus a few more tons of sand the fella gave us in the early part of the year.
  2. Just took this picture from our new roof camera...YAY!!!
  3. Laughed out loud on that one Billy...lol.
  4. Yes Ieuan, spraying clover as well but slowly winning! Yup a few dry days will help but the pitch is showing a lot of the stuff now, my fears have come true with the rain after fertilising it was too heavy and has caused flushing in some areas and washed it away in others! That's where the red thread is....bugger. Yes Mrgreen it's certainly growing... I'm cutting 3 times a week at this time!
  5. Yes Bruegel, we are in the process of removing the stones but got delayed when the lockdown came, just waiting for a date off the contractor to complete the works.
  6. Sod it...red thread back already! Only fertilised 4 weeks ago and its washed through the profile with all the rain we've had. The fertiliser should have lasted around 8 weeks not 4 now I'll have to do it again IF there's enough rain around. Red thread thrives in poor conditions with wet and warmth to support it, although it won't kill the grass it will knock the leaves off and make the ground look quite poor! I think I'm paying the price for keeping my Nitrogen levels low in favour of growing roots, I'll have to rethink my strategy methinks. You boys who use the slow release stuff...are you getting any Red thread???
  7. Gave the pitch a good brushing today after a small couple of 6 a side practice matches last night, and wanted to stand the grass up for hopefully a nice cut tomorrow after ladies practice tonight. Grass is a bit on the thick side so may give it a light scarifying next week. Grass looking a bit on thick spongy side for my liking. But the brushing did a good job of standing the stolon's up for nipping off.
  8. And I think football at our level is in the same boat! Localised spikes all over England and around the world doesn't bode well.
  9. And some of them would be very nice to look at too.
  10. I wouldn't want to be the person who tells me !!!!
  11. URGHHH! Lol, nothing wrong with changing the angle of cuts occasionally...BUT! your definitely bored Ieuan.
  12. Also on the lookout for a verticutter to remove a few long ends that the cylinders cannot nip off. Remember that if your mower has floating heads then it cannot cut grass longer than the distance between the front roller and the bottom blade. Fixed head units can as no front roller so can cut grass a lot longer than the floating head.
