    It's been a terrible spring. Winter snow on AB side was fine, but then we got heat and zero precip and it's fucked us so hard. Very unhelpful combination of short term weather conditions.

    I’m always a fan of hot dry conditions, but that huge amount of late snow really pissed me off. Lost about a month of golf, which equates to about $1000 in membership dues down the drain.

    Tbh. I’ll trade how awesome May and June golf has been for that all day long.

    I wish I had a timer to water my lawn in the dead of night, away from prying eyes...

    This is normal seeds mixed with loom after 7 days of watering 30min four times daily. You probably need more water.

    Has Calgary ever had a watering ban?

    Thatís literally how it looks from just being dirt and new seed? Or is that existing grass youíre supplementing haha

    Edit: Iím dumb I see your last post. I donít get it, my watering timers are maxed out at the intervals and I have nothing even close to that. I did loam seed mixed it all up. Tried a couple seeds too incase one sucked.

    I've never had sprouts that early either. Last time I planted, it was at least 2 weeks before I saw anything but dirt.

    Literally just dirt. I cut out the sod in that corner because it was doing so poorly I wanted to start from scratch. You can see the diagonal line were I cut it. It's a layer of loom (to make up for the height of the cut out sod), then the seeds, then a light layer of loom on top. As I said, I was watering 4 times a day, at 15 minutes per watering, but this spot actually gets hit by both zones so was getting 30min.

    The other areas that were only getting 15 minutes aren't nearly as well off as this spot. So the lesson is more water. Never enough water with the weather we've been having.

    Edit: Oh, and no fertilizer, because I had fertilized the entire lawn a month ago, so didn't want to over-do it.

    Give it some time. It’s been what, a week for you? I know mine went from dirt dirt dirt to suddenly sprouts one weekend. Different seeds germinate at different speeds. An hour of watering a day is insane but you know it was kept moist even in 30 degree weather

    Yeah, until they germinate you HAVE to keep it watered. I switched the schedule to twice a day this weekend, and next weekend I'll cut down again, and the week after that back to normal watering.

    Still a bit patchy (see dogs), but this was just seed raked over dirt, watered 4 minutes every three hours for ~2 weeks

    Nice results. Thinking of fixing some patches, is Mid june too hot to do this? should I just wait till the fall?

    If you have the patience to wait, I’d wait. I’m trying to sort the patches and it’s been a struggle with how hot it’s been. Or wait till we have a cooler forecast for 1-2 weeks and then giver. Wife is getting annoyed with the non stop watering but I’m trying to get ahead of a water ban

    Lowes/Rona has CIL Lawn Food and Triple Play Lawn Fertilizer on clearance for $4.40/bag and $5.50/bag. Found some $4 off coupons around the garden center. $0.40 cents a bag!! Grabbed 12 bags, gave 3 to my co-worker, gave 2 to my neighbor. They are 30-0-3. Never fertilized before. But at this price, I can sprinkle it like a boss. The $5.50 bag was 33-0-3 with added Iron. Whats better?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.
