Re: How Bad Have Winter Storms Been Near You?

Same. Snow doesn’t normally stick around long here. But I haven’t seen the lawn in two weeks.

Re: What type of grass do I have

You’ll probably get better results if you wait until the growing season starts. I see you say you are in NV. But even in most ((U.S.) warm-season area areas, the season hasn’t really gotten underway.

Most folks at this point aren’t spending a lot of time thinking about grass.

Re: Grass growing under holly bush

It’s January. I suspect you’ll get better advice in mid March.

But if it bugs you, get down and hand pull it. (Or dig it out if it is sedge). That’s the safest way to get rid of it anyway.

Re: Bandera Bermuda

Yep. Plus the nature of most forums is you have a relatively small group of regular posters (measured in scores). Then you have folks looking for an answer to specific questions or just want to post their experience somewhere. The OP wasn’t active on this. It’s for very long. So you’ll probably not ...

Re: Backyard Mud Pit

Probably a bit early in the season, even for Georgia, to expect a lot of input on this. You may see some replies. But you’ll probably get more if you post closer to the growing season.

Re: How Is Everyone Doing? (Coronavirus)

I know two folks who have died from Covid, probably a half dozen others with mild cases.

One of the guys who died, was 51, no pre-existing conditions and had run 81 marathons. He got sick, started recovering. reported feeling much better on a Sunday. He relapsed Tuesday and was dead by Thursday.

While I whine, the second one was really a day of shaking and being cold and running a fever of 99.1. Get it on a Friday. Pick up some cans of soup and plenty of tea on your way home.

Re: Question re rock salt and grass

Some people use urea. Though I’m not sure if that would be allowed in states like NJ which restrict use of Fertilizer after certain dates.

Re: Northeast: Nor'easter Slams the Door on the Season

Did the last cut of the year over lunch. Took off about a quarter-inch.

We are looking at 12-to-18-inches of snow.

How late into the fall early winter can moss in turf be knocked down? When does it go dormant for the winter, if it does?
That depends on your local growing conditions. Doing it during colder months is best as the moss sends out spores then.

You’re not likely to get a lot of responses on this thread now, since it is nearly December. El Kay hasn’t been on the site since shortly after posting his last comment here.

You’d be in a better position to answer that question. It really depends on how your system is set up.

Re: Where did the water go?

You’ve either got a water pressure issue or you’ve got a leak in your system. If you’re on a well, I’d suspect that’s where your problem is. If you initially have pressure, but then you don’t, that’s probably the issue. I’d suggest using the smallest nozzle in each of your heads. But you just might ...

Re: KBG Fungus prevention Best Practice?

Best bet is to research NTEP for best cultivars for disease resistance. If you’re starting new, that’s the most important thing you can do. Also, if disease resistance is your primary concern, plant a KBG blend, not a monostand. I live my backyard monostand of Bewitched. But every year it shows an i...

Re: KBG Seed Question : Any difference in Regular Turf vs Forage Types

No. They could be in the same family. But some types/cultivars are bred for different purposes.

Are all dogs the same?
