We moved into our new house about 6 months ago and now that the weather has finally warmed up we're putting some of our efforts to the exterior. The lawn is in decent shape, that is nothing a little fertilizer and weed killer can't fix. However, I've noticed that the grass is now sprouting seed pods -- it looks like a short wheat field right now. We're located in southern Michigan. I've set the mower (recycler) to cut between 2 1/2 and 3 inches, which is enough to trim the seeds, but within a day or two they're back. the blade is good and sharp, and i'm not mowing when it's too wet/hot/cold etc.
