The old kayak is going bananas at the Moment so we need to slow this bad boy Down so I can keep on top of it I did Not think I'd be saying that when we Haven't even hit 20 degrees yet this Season but it's going absolutely crazy So put down some plant growth regulator Put some fertilizer down with us as well Just keep some color in it while we're Putting that down Just The Lawns looking good and we're Going to squeeze it down to 12 mil very Soon but I'm going to slow it down first Before I go too crazy with that before We start I've got to trim around this Tree because I didn't do it before my Last cut with all the rain Goes to show how long it's all grown That's since I've done my Renault which Was only two and a half weeks ago What you doing [Music] Anyway let's go Nice to have that turn up So good so now be able to do some stuff Down at the green when it's even Slightly buggy and a level bar too Piece for all that stuff appreciate Those guys Yeah looking after me Also I'll have to show you guys these Mowers soon these Cub Cadet ones lithium Batteries in these bad boys guys in Accentuous mowers have given me these to

Have a lend up and try out so We'll do that [Music] [Music] [Music] Yo mate what up welcome to another lawn Tip bed this is currently been cut at 15 15 mil 12 mil 15 mil And the reason I'm putting down some Plant growth regulator which is primo Which is going to slow down the growth Of this is because I had to cut two and A half days after I did that cut in my Last video And I got off four catches off one pass So this thing is growing like crazy we Had snow in town yesterday And attempts freezing this thing's still Going gangbusters I'd say it's because Of all the rain and it's pushing a bit Of growth and that fertilizer I kicked In a little bit earlier as well we did Our renovation plus it's got cool holes In it good sand which heat it up a bit More as well with our soil temp so a Couple of different things but we need To slow it down so I can start bringing My higher cut down Because every time I ski up you can see There's some long gangly bits here We need to slow those down The plant growth regulator so we can get Less off with each cut and it doesn't Turn too yellow

So this is the product that we're going To be using today this is some Primo Max So this is a plant growth regulator so The active in it is trinixopac ethyl so What this basically does is slows down The growth of our lawn now a lot of People have asked me to pass this is Going to help it thicken up and spread Sideways not really what it does is it Helps the lawn tiller so when you've got A plant and you've got the stem off it And you find it shoots blades off the Side it's just going to shoot more and More blades so the lawn looks a lot more Dense and a lot thicker so it shortens Down the nodes between the runners as Well so you're probably going to get a More dense lawn so if we're looking at a Node sort of hard to say on camera I'll Get up an image on the screen for you at The nodes just here I'm not sure if you can see it like a Little Almost like a little pimple like a Little little circle circular oh my Goodness I'm struggling circular lump Just there so it does shorter the Distance shorten the distance between The nodes which just allows the plant to Be a lot more dense so you'd find you'd See a lot more offshoots with this if we Had some plant growth regulator on there So the more regular you use the product The plant growth regulator
