Spreading Biosolids On Our Parkway - March 2023

Yesterday, I posted an update showing that I had spread 120 pounds of pelletized lawn lime on the back yard and gardens and mentioned that I was going to next turn to the application of pre-emergent.  But, I failed to even reference MY OWN PLAN.  In that plan - which I also published last week - I talked about how I wanted to add some biosolids to the parkway.  Just like with the Lime, I wanted to try to beat a storm that was coming.  So, I went out and picked up two five gallon buckets full of the stuff from the Village.  See below - the buckets are NOT QUITE FULL, as I didn't want to risk them tipping over/spilling and getting the smelly stuff all over my car.  

I intend to try to spread a layer of these biosolids all across the parkway.  Why?  A couple of reasons.  First....I've never had a lot of luck with the grass down here.  I'm not sure if it is road salt-related.  Or, the soil conditions?  Or both?  So, I figure I'll begin to amend the soil and see if I can turn things around.  

I took the 10 gallons of material and spread it around.  Looks like I'll need two more trips (20 more gallons) of biosolids to finish the parkway. 

Here (below) is the biosolids scattered from the buckets:

And here (below) is a look at the parkway after the biosolids have been raked in.  

I have another idea for using some of these biosolids to improve conditions, but more on that in a later post.
