If you are actually prescribed that should go away after a few days. Which it seems like you are, I just meant if you just snagged a couple you'll never get to that point.

If you have insurance (because it's expensive without) you might look into vivanse which is a prodrug and thus tapers more smoothly.

Another 'secret' is to pay extra for the good seed from a grass seed retailer. The stuff you get at the hardware store, even the premium label, is crap.

For example: https://www.preferredseed.com/category/?cid=55

There is a national turf seed rating program where they grow all kinds of grass in different climates in the US, NTEP, if you want to dive in deep. Some of the newer grasses just turn darker green when they go dormant, they don't turn brown.


meatpimp is absolutely right about length, something like 3-5" is a good spot and with good grass it will feel so soft and lush. Additionally, you stress the grass more when you cut off larger amounts of the blade, so longer grass (and more frequent cuttings) will help keep stress as low as possible.

Yeah its best to use natural plants / xeroscape, and a huge lawn is a chore and for most people a giant nitrogen sink / chemical fert dropping ground. Clovers are rad**. I really prefer to use mostly organic nitrogen sources that break down over time from soil bacteria, such as milorganite (Milwalkee Organic Nitrogen*) - you basically can't over apply it, it's slow-release, and you aren't dumping chemical salts in your yard. You want to encourage a good soil microbiome that naturally keeps nutrients in the soil instead of adding water-soluble nitrogen sources. Some chemical stuff is fine for supplementing minerals but grass is mostly about nitrogen. If you select a good grass for your area you can likely get away with minimal watering if you can accept dormancy, and if you are in a water-poor area doing otherwise is lovely. A good modern grass is a big part of that, you can get stuff that uses low amounts of water, survives drought, etc.

Also watch what happens to the water in your yard. The default setup (at least in the US) is to dump all water out into the street/sewer as quickly as possible. You get way less utility than you could have if you design the yard to slow the flow of water so it has time to soak everywhere, or collect it in ponds / containers and redistribute it.

Personally, I like mowing especially after a day sitting in a chair typing, but I can do the entire lawn in 30 minutes with a push reel mower.


* it's poo poo processed into fertilizer in one of the first industrial humanure operations and you know milwalkians are packing some powerful shits. You can also check around locally, some cities have similar operations like austin's dillo dirt

** my minorly rich banker uncle bought a summer cabin place in some wooded hills near a stream and had the most beautiful lawn with clovers growing evenly throughout, not at all patchy, just wonderful looking and he was like "i dunno, i didn't do anything lawn just came like this"

the 'problem' with clover is that you can't bomb the whole yard with broadleaf herbicide that kills things that aren't grass so you have to have a healthy lawn that keeps weeds out
