Re: A Scalping question

If you are overseeding and want to get a jump on it and take the height down a little bit ahead of time instead of all at once, go for it. It's less work to do later and if the intention is to preserve the condition and appearance of the existing grass, it's the better way to do things. Maybe start ...

This is one I've actually never heard of. Hmph.

It's actually a slow grower...hence the name. I'm planning a mini reno with it.

"MyHolidayLawn" KBG is on its way out

Another one... The cultivar "MyHolidayLawn" Kentucky Bluegrass is no longer being marketed/grown. The last crop was last year, and the dealer I spoke with said this is it. So if you need some, you're going to want to call your previous dealer ASAP...the one I spoke with only had 15 lbs left as of th...

Re: Serenade not longer sold if Quarts, Alternatives?

Wow, and Amazon is already sold out. I may be looking for a quart, too. Guess a trip to my local garden center is in order in that case...those types of places might have a bottle or two left.

Re: Grass/Grassy Weed ID Please

Jason, I can't definitively tell the species from the photos, but from the curling, it looks like a drought stressed cool season turfgrass (maybe because it was pulled up? Or was it like that in the lawn? Maybe you have a dry spot.) It could easily be TTTF...maybe some perennial Ryegrass mixed in, b...

"America" KBG may be making an exit

I started hearing rumblings over a year ago, but dealers weren't totally sure back then. I was told by a dealer very recently that America Kentucky Bluegrass is indeed on it's way out as of mid 2020, and most likely what is in the distribution chain now will be the last of it...it's unlikely to be g...

Re: Lime and Potash application

The application general guideline is to space out apps as far as possible, at least 2 weeks, but further is not going to hurt. That way, you prevent interactions. You have the right idea applying 1 lb of actual K20 at a time (2 lb/K of 0-0-50). Everything else is up to you.

Re: So when do we drop the PreM?

I haven't done mine yet, but Forsythia also haven't bloomed yet. But I did apply an early app on another lawn to target specific broadleaf weeds. I doubt that even this year, crabgrass would start germinating (at the earliest) until the grass is fully green and has been mowed a couple of times after...

Re: Turflon Ester vs T-Zone

As far as Bermuda suppression and killing Bermuda, I assume you know that the programs and cocktails tend to be elaborate (unless you want to spend money for Pylex). Triclopyr is only a small part of a Bermuda control regimen. But I'm sure you've already researched this all and are well versed on it...

Re: Pre emergent . Scott’s+ Proamidine ?

The Halts at bag rate lasts around 8 weeks. According to research, it's ok to use 2 different dinitroaniline active ingredients as part of a split program. Just apply your prodiamine before 8 weeks comes. Preferably closer to 6 weeks for insurance. In the meantime, the Pendimethalin will help with e...

Re: Prodiamine - Did I buy the wrong type?

When I checked a few weeks ago, my local SiteOne did not have 0-0-7 granular Prodiamine. But it's worth asking yiurs if they do when you bring it back if granular is what you want. Of course, at the very lowest prodiamine application rates (e.g. a 2 + 2 lb/K split app), 13% Nitrogen would would only...

Re: Weed-killer choices while seeding bare spots with KBG

There are not a lot of post herbicides that permit seeding KBG during use. The one that comes to mind is Tenacity. But even with it, you cannot apply it during the actual germination period. Before is fine. As far as your product, check the label. It will give you a number of weeks to wait after use...

Re: It's Finally the Day I Consider the Beginning of Spring!!

Typically March 15th-22nd is when I really start seeing signs of Spring.

Guess what? For 2020, today was the day. Even more insects and birds, more greenup, and the big one...Spring "Peeper" frogs made their presence known today in my area. So, we are roughly a week ahead of average this year.
