Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Cost: $50 Skill Level: Moderate Tools List for Revitalizing a Lawn:
Core aerator
Shovel
Rake
Spreader
Water hose Shopping List:
Compost
Starter Lawn Fertilizer
Grass seed Steps:
1. Aerate the lawn using a core aerator. Make passes up and down the lawn and then do perpendicular passes.
2. Sprinkle roughly ½” of compost on top of the lawn. Use the back of the rake to work the compost down into the holes made by the aerator.
3. Put the fertilizer in the spreader and apply it to the lawn.
4. Put grass seed in the spreader and apply it to the lawn. Use the back of the rake to work it in.
5. Give everything a good watering. Resources:
Roger used a core aerator to add small holes to the lawn. It can be rented at tool rental houses and home centers. Roger then applied compost, which is available at home centers and garden centers. Roger applied Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass, which is a fertilizer high in phosphorous to promote root growth. He then spread Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix, which is coated to help lock in moisture. Both of these are manufactured by Scotts (https://www.scotts.com/en-us). All the other tools for this project, including a broadcast spreader and lawn rake are available at home centers and nurseries.

Watch the full episode: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/watch/ask-toh-lawn-care-futuristic-workshop Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva travels to a workshop in San Francisco to build a stool using computer-based tools. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Steps:
1. When using computerized equipment, begin by designing the finished piece using a 3D CAD program.
2. A laser printer is often used for etching metal and glass, but it can also be used for making a physical model using plywood.
3. A 3D printer can prototype smaller sections of the design, like where two joints come together and how stock hardware interfaces with the 3D model.
4. A water jet uses a high-pressure stream of water mixed with garnet to cut the aluminum legs and base, including countersinks, mortises, and tenons.
5. A CNC router can mill the wood top using several different cutter heads.
6. The final assembly takes place by hand. Resources:
Tom visited Autodesk at Pier 9 (https://www.autodesk.com/pier-9). The stool he built was based on a design by Matt Hutchinson, a designer at PATH (http://patharc.com/). Follow This Old House and Ask This Old House: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ThisOldHouse
