Re: 2019: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Overseeded 10 days ago and am cutting back the watering schedule starting tomorrow. Most of the yard looks amazing! The strip along the road that gets full sun is just now starting to germinate. I'll hand water that section several times a day. I picked a dumb time to overseed though. We have had no...

Re: Clovers everywhere

When did you apply your dimension? If you applied it this spring, there is a good possibility it has warn off allowing the clover to germinate. If all you need to get rid of is clover, I would use Weed B Gon Chickweed Clover Oxalis killer (Triclopyr) with the purple label. I'd save the tenacity for ...

Re: Nitrogen, Winter, and Warmer Climates

Dark, what height do you normally take your lawn down to in winter? Do you think constant feeding your TTTF would be okay? I usually go down to 2.5" or 3" for the winter. I don't think I will constantly feed all the way through the winter but I'm thinking I could go another month and stop mid to la...

Re: Nitrogen, Winter, and Warmer Climates

Looking up my average soil temperatures in December, Janurary, and Februrary the average is about 40 degrees 0-10cm down. I'm willing to do some testing in the transition zone!

Re: Weed ID

Do some searches on here for Bermuda + Acclaim Extra + Triclopyr. There are a few different formulas that others have used with pretty good success. I've been using that combo and it does a good job of keeping the bermuda from spreading and "killing off" the (visible) bermuda that is there. It requi...

Re: 2019: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Sprayed last round of Bermuda killer on the yards for the season. It really should have another application next month but I've got to overseed this fall so that will have to do it. I'm waiting for the tree guys to come put some cables in a large silver maple and trim some of the limbs. Seed arrived...

Re: 2019: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Saturday I jackknifed the trailer into my vehicle after taking a load of brush to the burn pile :blackeye: Got a break from the heat and a significant amount of rain. Should be low 80s this week so plan to get some micros spread on the yard. I've been a little behind on everything due to the heat.

Applied Disease Ex on my yard and my parents yard. The conditions are perfect for it and I can see it getting started. Not wasting any time this year.

Let's see your aquariums

In light of Andy's recent aquarium tragedy, I've seen a few people mention their aquariums. I want to see what they all look like! I have a 40 breeder with T5HO lighting and CO2. I'm not pumping high light or high levels of CO2, just enough to make it look decent but still low maintenance. I also ha...

Re: Ruts in lawn

I think the remember Andy advising another user to use a pitchfork or a similar tool. Stick it in the ground near the depressions and lift the soil up to level it out. You may have to do it a few times. That is where I would start.

I think that may be annual rye. You might want to compare it to some ID pictures online because I am no expert.

Probably the best my lawn has ever looked. I know the triv is still there but the Velocity and heat have put a hurt on it for now.

Currently at 3.5" with TTTF. I think I may stay here this year instead of going up to 4"
