Re: Poa or ????

So the tenacity lights it up and the certainty takes it out. What dosage, timing and frequency do u use for the certainty? And do u use mso?

Re: Poa or ????

Andy can you summarize what you see as the best strategy for Tenacity on Poa T? Dosage, frequency, time of year, etc? Also are you a proponent of MSO? Thanks

Re: Poa or ????

Looks like POA T to me. Having tried all the other solutions I think next year I will try to buy a roll of kbg sod and use that to patch poa T spots that I have dug out. I'm not even going to try spraying it with anything. My existing lawn is all kbg. It may not match perfectly but it will be better...

Re: Help, don’t know what happened or how to fix

Are those the areas that were reseeded after the drain was installed? If so, when was that? And what kind if seed?

Close up pictures would help a lot.

Re: Poor man's irrigation system?

I added 3 new spigots. Easy to do with pex. That simplified things a little.

We have low water pressure coming in from the town. About 35 psi. So I had a plumber install a pump to boost pressure to whatever i set it to, which is usually 60 psi or so.

Good luck!

Re: Grass identification and advice on next steps

I have heard Andy say that the seeds dont care about air temps so that would indicate a green light.

https://i.postimg.cc/GBJ8Syfv/20200818-220146.jpg We have germination on the evening of Day 5 (8/18). It took some hunting, but there are a few early arrivals to the lawn party. I unfortunately also got an inch of rain this morning with some heavy downpours mixed in. Areas where my buried downspout...

Good luck, now the wait begins, PR should be a lot quicker than the KBG!!
I need to change my profile. The backyard PR is what I just killed and I put down a kbg blend.

Re: jskierko's Fall 2020 Bewitched Front Renovation

Looks great. I am basically at the same stage. Seed down, covered, rolled and now tweaking irrigation. I agree that exhaustion from a lawn care project is a different kind of exhaustion. What do your neighbor's think about your reno? Are they the type who will say "it looked fine to me, why'd you ki...

Re: Schreibdave's 2020 Backyard Renovation

Got seed down yesterday and finished covering it and rolling it today. Sprinklers are going as we speak. Sprinklers need a little adjustment and I need to put up some fencing to keep the dog out but otherwise, I am done! If last year is any guide I will be looking for germination in 7 days. https://...

Re: I've killed my lawn

Could we maybe look at other things you (or your contractor) are doing? Maybe different fertilizer, timing or mowing practices will make enough of an improvement.

Re: How is everyone making out with disease this year?

I have a little something going on. Anybody know what this is and what the proper course of action would be? Some individual blades have died off, others have these lesions but most are fine.

Re: jskierko's Fall 2020 Bewitched Front Renovation

if it were my project, I’d apply the Tenacity last. Of course, I’d also probably skip the top dressing. I’ve done about a dozen renovations over the years. In some of the early ones I topdressed. I’ve had the best results with seed, roll, tenacity. Where I have grass stubble, I can see the top dres...

Re: jskierko's Fall 2020 Bewitched Front Renovation

As soon as I finish my breakfast I am headed outside to work on my reno. With luck I will get the tenacity down, seed spread and compost top dressing down before the end of the day. Tomorrow will be roller and makeshift fence to keep the dog off it.

Good luck

Re: New house lawn

I wish someone would start stealing the mail from my mailbox. As for a slow growing grass type for WA, I'm on the opposite side of the country so I have no idea. In fact, even if you were my neighbor and said that minimal mowing was your priority, I wouldn't know what to suggest. Actually, you could...
