Hello, from a new member and straight into a question!
I recently reseeded my lawn (about 3 years ago) and did my best t
look after it. Hollow tine,fertiliser etc. I now find it thick wit
some very rough grass. Thing is there is quite a lot of moss in it thi
year and I wondered if I left it in this year and did nt kill it woul
it deplete the nutrients to the thicker grass and leave the lawn easie
mowed and more managable. I must admit in the past that I did give th
lawn a dressing of pelleted blood for greens. (The author of 'practica
greenkeeping' worked near here years ago and told me to leave ou
phosphates on the lawn when feeding as it only encouraged poa Annua.
All I really want is to keep the grass less thick so at least when
mow it is not a chore and the cuttings are more easily managed.
You don't say what you are using to mow it and why exactly it's
difficult. In any case, I would not be looking to thin out the
existing turf as a solution. The grass should be thick, that's the
sign of a good and healthy lawn and it keeps weeds out. You can lay
off fertilizer, making only one application in the Fall, which would
avoid growth stimulation during other periods. But, if you have
thick rough grass, the main indication is that must be what you seeded
it with. You should have used a finer texture grass. There are
also grass alternatives that grow slower than others. Which one is
best depends on climate, sun vs shade, etc.
We have POA Annua and have just had it scarified (was done last autum
as well) and is looking better - We live next to a golf course and th
said the best way to get rid of POA and anything else unwanted is t
hope for a good dry hot spell and don't water it - the grass wil
recover but the grot wont
I will keep you posted. This is my 3rd year with no use of phosphate
and the lawn seems to be better. There generally seems to be far les
poa. By the way Jim Arthur was the author of practical greenkeeping an
its a great read if you are a lawn addict as well
If you're going to abbreviate, please abbreviate the *genus* and not the
"Poa A." could be:
They're all species of Bluegrass/Meadow-grass, but they're each a totally
different plant, and abbreviating the species leaves 100% doubt as to which
you're referring to. The genus, once established in the text, need not be
abbreviated, unless the discussion turns to another genus starting with the
same letter. In that case, the genus would need to be spelled out, also.
After they make styrofoam, what do they ship it in?
Yup. And, you apparently don't comprehend how Latin naming conventions
work. Was just trying to help you understand it, so you don't look like an
ass in the future. Apparently, you don't mind projecting yourself as such.
Hey, if you're going to try and use Latin names, at least learn how they

as selfappointed official usenet referee in my own mind, i'm gonna
give this one to Eggs. his post wasn't particularly nasty, he even had
a smiley. =)
Mr. Hurst overreacted, setting off the usual usenet war.
You're right. Mr Hurst's question never happened. Do you not even
comprehend what you, yourself, typed? Go back and read the (/your/) post
that I replied to, that started you on your trek towards The Deep End.
Where the fuck is the (/your/) question, moron?
Right, anyone who points you in the right direction, so you don't look the
fool that you are in the future, is an asshole. Gotya.
There's probably still a lot you can't spell, with your sixth grade
