Brief description of my location/climate:

3.1 acres of scrub woods and steep southwest slopes down to a swampy front yard. avg 45-60"/yr. precipitation. First frost: September 25. Last frost: April 10. Avg. low in winter is 22 degrees Fahrenheit, occasionally down to 0 or -2 to 3. Avg. high in summer is 82 degrees Fahrenheit, occasionally up to 103 to 104.


I joined this site July 6 '11. I have been gardening all my life, and have experience in the southeastern Pennsylvanian climate. I have knowledge in lawn care, tree and shrub care, general landscaping, edibles, nursery, and indoor gardening, as well as other variable aspects of horticulture.

I also have a fairly good knowledge of basic biological concepts, and have fun learning about it on Biology beta. I enjoy outdoor activities, when I can get around to them.

Feel free to drop me a note:

comment Identify this grass please
From the habit, it appears to be a tall fescue. Remember, because it was developed for turf, there are now many heights, blade widths, and shades of green out there. Two tall fescues can look quite different. Your 'mystery grass' actually looks more like tall fescue than your 'tall fescue'. lol

comment How to turn off the lights without getting out of bed?
@Adam, in the future, we can comment below such posts beforehand, and edit only if the user doesn't take the action himself. The policy of one solution per answer is actually an old one, from Robert (which I agree with fwiw). We're just now finally 'enforcing' it. :p
