Re: Glypho Orchard grass before seeding

I dont believe extra dye is a problem.

Re: Glypho Orchard grass before seeding

I have painted before but I dont think I would do it again. I would prefer to try to dribble the RU out of the sprayer.

Re: What are these dead spots?

It could be a dog urine spot. I have a dog and it doesn't occur in areas that she can't get to. But it is inconsistent. The areas where she goes most often are fine but these other areas where she might go less frequently get the spots. Plus her diet is very consistent so I would think her urine's c...

Re: Anyone still dropping Milo?

What's "PFAS?" Heavy metals? I am a huge believer in Milo. I spot applied a heavy dose in an area that I was trying to thicken up following last years renovation, and not only did the area fill in nicely (which it might have done anyway) but it turned a much darker green then the untreated area. It ...

Re: jskierko's Fall 2020 Bewitched Front Renovation

Looks good. Did you mow and bag all of that dead grass yourself? I only killed off about 4K sqft and I got lucky that the HOA's mowing contractor was in the neighborhood yesterday. He scalped it with his big riding mower with bags on the back. He still had to make several stops to dump the bags into...

Re: Erosion Mat

I would want to make sure that the hydro seed truck doesn't have any seed in it from a previous job. That's a good idea though.

Re: 2019-20 complete yard implantation

Right off New Scotland Ave between the two hospitals. It's a pretty great neighborhood. I used to know it well. Both of my kids and my wife were born at St. Peter's Hospital. But a lot of that area has changed for the better since we moved away. Lawn looks about a million times better than what you...

Re: Erosion Mat

I look forward to doing this sort of thing someday for my 22 and 24 YO kids. It does put a little pressure on your son in law though. Hopefully he has bought in to the lawn nut approach to lawn care.

Re: I got a visit from the County Water Department

I got my bill. $275 for the quarter ending 7/31. I used 56,000 gallons in total. Same quarter last year (prior to doing a 3 side renovation) was 18,000. This was my first season with new kbg on 3/4 of the lawn and my first year in this house with an irrigation system. We had a drought and lots of he...

Re: Post emergent crabgrass killer approved in NY

I see that Amazon will ship me a small bottle of a lower concentration of Quinclorac but not the higher concentration. Which is fine because I don't need much.

It looks like "Fusilade II" can be sold to NY homeowners. Any experience with that?

What does "code approved" mean?
I think he means the product doesn't meet the building codes in the local jurisdiction.

Post emergent crabgrass killer approved in NY

As the title says, what are my options? Amazon says that quinclorac is not approved for use in NY.

Re: Schreibdave's 2020 Backyard Renovation

Raking is a "no go." If that's necessary I'll bag. If i get lucky my HOA lawn mowing contractor will be in the neighborhood and ill have them scalp and bag it. The reason I cant rake is I need rotator cuff surgery. And the reason I need rotator cuff surgery is from vigorously raking my dead PR up in...

What are these dead spots?

I seem to have two kinds. They look the same from above but when u pull on the dead blades u get two different results. The first kind is dead on top but seems to have some green down below and the blades are firmly rooted. The second type of spot looks identical but the blades pull right up. They a...

Schreibdave's 2020 Backyard Renovation

Well the deed is done. I sprayed 16oz of generic 50% glyphosate on my 4K sqft PR back yard. Last year I did the front and sides (about 9K sqft) and it came out better than I could have hoped. Lets hope this year's project turns out just as well. I'll give it 5-6 days and then I will start scalping i...
