Make sure you do NOT use the long-lasting stuff.

Re: Where to buy Zorro (or other fine leaf) Zoysia plugs

I meant check with the better business burea, etc before dealing with any vendor. Your post didn’t say you had found a place but you couldn’t afford to buy the minimum order. It said you couldn’t find it. People can only answer your question based on the post you make. Few of us are mind readers. I’...

Re: Where to buy Zorro (or other fine leaf) Zoysia plugs

Have you tried Google? I’ve no experience with this company. But a quick search turns up this and other sites. I’d advise doing your homework before ordering. Not sure what search term you used. But “Zoro Zoysia plugs” seem to return quite a few. https://sodsolutions.com/sod-delivery/buy-sod/zorro-z...

Re: Bentgrass Greens

Seems bizarre that they have bent grass greens in NC.

Re: FishMi220’s 2020 fall Reno

Preen.

You can get it at any box store.

If you plan to start from scratch I’d also put down a weed barrier. It’s simple to do if it is an empty space.

Re: Weed B Gone CCO killed my grass?

If you apply it when the temps are over 80 degrees Fahrenheit you risk damaging your grass.

Re: Compost or Mulch for your Shrub Beds

I would have suggested getting your mulch from a different source.

Re: help lawn turned brown after sodium laureth sulfate and yucca extract

The OP double posted. I think your response is there. I can delete the other thread. But not sure if that makes it worse.

Good luck. This doesn’t seem to be a good plan. But maybe it will work out for you.

Re: 'New' House old lawn Restoration 2020

Wait. You’re trying to get rid of poa triv and you thought a dethatching rake would help?

You likely just made your problem worse. You didn’t remove 60 percent of it. You shredded it and spread the problem over a larger area.

Re: Wide blade Zoysia needs help

Zoysia is a low-input grass. You shouldn’t feed it more than twice a year. You should never feed it heavily. Doing so won’t kick start it. But it may help you kick it to the curb. It doesn’t thrive in high input environments.

It’s not likely to outcompete Bermuda in warm season environments.

Re: Another spot seeding question.

Sod probably won’t match existing color and texture . If texture and color matching isn’t important then that might be a solution. But if it matters, it isn’t something I would do.

Rather than sod, maybe take edging material from around your mulch beds.

Re: Lawn Browning

That photo won’t help much. It could be a lot of things. Fungus, mower blades need sharpening, dry spot. No one can say based just on that photo.

I’d suggest contacting your local county cooperative extension and sending them samples.

Re: Lawn porn, Midnight Monostand

If the reason you planted a monostand was for it’s looks, I don’t see why you’d change now —unless disease pressure is overwhelming.

KBG seed heads vs Poa Annua seed heads

It’s that time of year where you’ll see seed heads in your lawn. Before panicking, realize your Kentucky Bluegrass goes to seed about this time every year.

We’ve posted this image every year since 2008/2009. Here’s your annual reminder.
