Is  'stones' just another name for the heavy lawn roller? :reading_the_manual:

George looks like a hard worker;)

 

I'd would guess the new grass is pushing up small stones... pushing them down would be alot easy than trying to pick them

Newpaws, think you might have that right.  We just don't know that "foreign" language, ha!  Guy never answered back, maybe we P'd him off?  Write back please and clear this topic up!

Hi all

In Scotland when we sow grass seed we roll the ground afterwards to push the stones in,  this saves damage to the mowers but as the weather was wet at the time of sowing I left the rolling  until the first cut, hope this explains things Thanks for your comments Thanks

PS  no offense taken

:beer: :beerchug: :bigrofl: :thank_you: :smiley-flag013:

All of our equipment is named....the grandkids like it and it catches on after awhile.....we have Emma (Farmall), Erma (Ingersoll), Troy (Bolens), Roscoe (Rascal scooter), Jenny (generator), Wally (Lincoln buzzbox), Kate (skateboard), Scott (scooter)....it goes on and on. All of our grandkids from talking age up know their names and what they do. Seems pretty harmless to me.

Names are prol'y easier than numbers.

 

Me- The third Wheel Horse.

She- The one you bought last week???

Me- No, that's the sixth one. I'm talking about the one I got for free.

Hi all

The reason I named my Gutbrods was that I got fed up saying to anyone  the first one I bought the second I bought and the third one I bought

It was easier to say George, Allison, And Kermit. at least it has created a talking point Thanks

:beer: :beerchug: :bigrofl: :thank_you: :oh_shucks:

PS where would we be without a sense of humour
