The Dumbass Lounge>***Official gardening, landscape and yardwork thread***
lewdog 11:06 AM 03-11-2017
We had a 2014 gardening thread and another planting trees thread. Figured it would be better just to have a general thread to share knowledge about all things yards.

I've learned stuff about growing things here in the desert from people all around the country. Post pictures and share your knowledge!

Last fall I decided it was time to give covering the lateral lines another shot. I brought in another dump truck load of dirt and of course they had to dump it about a hundred yards from where I needed it. It took several days of shoveling and hauling but I finally got it all spread out and reseeded in mid October.
Hey man, it looks like someone broke down in your front yard. You should go help them out.

My neighbors talked me into displaying "Patina" as yard art. I bought the old 50 in 1984 and got it running and driving then parked it.

You went to all the trouble to get it running just so you could park it? Sigh.

The story is a little more complicated than that. I bought it in 1984 because it was my birth year. It drove like crap, king pin bushings were worn out. Had plenty of other iron to drive.
I plan on finding the right Dakota (sb, single cab, v8) and putting the body on that when I get around to it.

Tires filled with concrete, or is it on jacks?

I think it's awesome, and I hope you take a scho63-style sabbatical and make it perfect.

They are full of air actually. It was funny, when I decided to move it all the tires actually held air long enough to get it rolled up on my car trailer. A couple of the wheels had actually rusted through but they had tubes in them. Then, last fall on craigslist I found a guy selling tires/wheels off an old 51 DeSoto down in Arkansas, so that is what it is sitting on.

All Dakotas will work if they are single cab short bed Jason. I have found a couple in my price range on Craigslist but have been too late.


Sorry for getting your gardening thread hijacked Lewdog, not intentional.

Best way to kill weeds other than roundup, pulling them manually. ?

What kind of weeds? There are plenty of selective herbicides out there.

2,4-D took care of all of my broadleafs (dandelions, thistle, spurge, and henbit) this spring. I still have some Poa Annua and some Annual Rye since the 2,4-D doesn't kill grasses, but I'll just have to wait for the heat to kill them. I missed the window in which I can use roundup because the Bermuda is already greening.

To long term solve the weed problem, you need to spray and keep the weeds from coming to seed and keep a pre-emergent down year around for a few years.

What kind of weeds you rocking and what kind of residual do you want? Are you planning on reseeding or anything?
