Vertical Cutting, Idecompo, Topsoiling, and Watering Lawn
Lawn on March 26th, 2016, at 6 o’clock in the early morning before staring the work.
Vertical cutting, at first. Attache a root cutting blade on Ryobi LM-2800, and set the cutting height in the lowest of 5 mm.
In the middle of the vertical cutting, in the right side is after the cutting. Can you see the fine lines?
It looks like this in a closeup view.
Because it was early in th morning before the sun lit
on the lawn, it was very cold, so that collected thatches were freezed by frost.
Because it was cold and I worked while taking rest, the completion of the vertical cutting was at 7:50, finally the sun lit and it got warm.
The collected thatches were for one fourth of a garbage bag. The thatches are in somewhat smaller amount, possibly because of shortness of the lawn.
Then I spreaded Idecompo. The spreading amount was written as 30 g/m2. Because our lawn is 234 m2, it is culculated as about 7 kg. I spreaded 1 bag, 5 kg for the time being. I use “seed/fertilizer spreader, Scotts, Handy Spreader” for spreading fertilizer and Idecompo.
Then, spreading topsoil follows. What I use is Manual seed spreader, Drop Seeder, made by Minato Works, and the topsoil is Top Soil/Bed Soil for Lawn, about 25 L, made by Tachikawa-Heiwa.
The topsoil arrived yesterday in the daytime by Express Delivery.
In the middle of the topsoiling. Although the right side is after the topsoiling, the appearance is not so different.
Because it was the beginning of the season, I topsoiled entirely though very thinly. I spreaded 7 bags in total, 4 bags for entirely and 3 bags for dents.
The actual spreading amount is like this, it is the matter of feeling irrespective of the effect.
I lightly rubbed the entire with the rake.
After the rubbing.
Though withered grasses and thatches still catch eyes, Bacillus subtilis in Ide-compo will decompose them.
I set up the watering system, too.
The first watering in this year.
It was around 11 o’clock that I finished the work. I enjoyed the 5 hours of garden works though taking intervening rests.
