The Handyguys address the soon-to-come fall lawn care season.
Before The Handyguys talk about fall lawn care they address a listener question.
TerBeek sent us the following message –
How can I remove a broken drill bit from the window moulding without damaging the moulding? We were drilling a pilot hole for hardware to hang a custom sized window blind when the bit broke. The moulding area isn’t large, limiting the area in which we can install the window treatment hardware. (i.e., we need that bit out, because the hardware can’t be moved up, down, forward or back from the initial pilot hole position.) The bit was very thin, and about half of it remains in the window frame/moulding. It broke off flush with the surface, so we can’t grab it with a pliers. Help! We’re getting sick of the temporary blinds but don’t know what to do to reclaim our pilot hole.
The Handyguys Brian & Paul have some ideas. Listen to the show for their possible solutions.
Now on to Fall lawn care.
We know that this is not a popular thing to say this time of year, but the fall season is just around the corner! And with Fall, comes the most important time in lawn care. It is the time when you need to feed, de-weed, and pamper your lawn to make it strong and healthy for the winter season. For cool season lawns, this is the time for the handguy to get to work your yard.
What do the Handyguys recommend? Good fertilizer, a good core aerator, a rake and some new grass seed will be your main tools. In addition to fertilizing and aerating your lawn, you will want to remove all the leaves and possibly over seed some of the weaker areas of your lawn. But before you start, get those kids off the grass and listen to our podcast!
