Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

Here are the weed pics. Looks like it's prickly lettuce. Just my guess

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

I forgot to say, I saw hundreds of tiny weeds. Without a picture of the "tiny weeds", it's not possible to be sure, but many newly-germinated lawns show tiny dicots (two-leaf plants) that simply disappear as the grass starts to mature a bit. They just don't compete well as the grass thickens and th...

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

If you need to. Teeny weeds could be annuals, which won't survive November, much less the winter, or perennials, which may or may not survive the winter since they sprouted late. Next April is more than enough time to worry about them at this point. If they're teeny, they're not eating much. Got it...

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

While a pound was, perhaps, a tad high for pause-time, you can simply consider it your winterizer and just call yourself done for the year. Newly-renovated grass is not likely to grow significantly much later than this unless the weather seriously warms. Which...well, it might. Ours is supposed to ...

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

I just finished putting fertilizer 30 mins ago, 6pm Chicago time. Before I started, I touched the grass to see strong the blades are. I was able to tell that grass has matured. That's when I decided, "you know what, whatever, I'll drop urea now, LOL 🤣". I made my first step on the grass. I was like ...

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

The air temp right now is so nice but it rained this morning. I'm kinda worried that if I step on the grass, blades will stick to the dirt :(

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

Yep and as long as we don't fly near airports at least 5 or 6 miles. Anyways, my lawn will be 30 days old on Oct 27. However, soil temp has dropped to 45-47F for almost a week now. This coming Thursday, air temp will be 73F but definitely that temp will only be for an hour or less. It's still going ...

I don't think there is anything in the way of a permissions thing preventing Youtube links here.
Yep. I found few of my old comments that contain youtube link and they're still there. Or maybe drones are illegal to mention or post in our "Water Cooler" sub forum?

It's ok 😊

It was probably the external video link?

If you post your own photos/links though, the dragon-lords who own and operate this place should be fine with it.
Yes, it was a youtube link. Isn't allowed?

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

This is weird. I posted about my drone hobby in Water Cooler sub forum last night. I still saw it this morning. However, it's been deleted. I was under the impression that Water Cooler sub forum is meant for posting stuff not related to lawns and gardening. Oh well, it's ok

I never skip the preventatives and I never skip putting up Bag-A-Bug traps. I was surprised once, rather nastily, and that won't happen again. It's a cheap alternative to killing the grubs and then fixing the problem.
I'll definitely do the same next year. 💪Thanks a lot!

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

I think you already used a curative? You pretty much got what you're going to get, so anything remaining--probably not much--won't do much in terms of damage. Feeding is very light in spring and root and top growth is very, very strong. Most grub damage is done in September. Check in April and agai...

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

WOW, I was wrong the whole time. I wasn't aware there is an ideal limit of N we should put during spring time. Thanks a lot! One more thing to mention, though, is that all of these recommendations, and guidelines, and schedules, and plans are not set in stone. There are ranges of good / better / be...

If this hadn't been 2020, my late-spring app would have been completely organic, targeted about 1 pound N tops (if it had been 0.6 to 0.85, I wouldn't sweat it in spring), and been applied around May 15th.

It was, however, 2020. :-)
Got it! Thanks for sharing your schedule again. 😊

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

Well, whether or not Plan A works depends upon the type of nitrogen fertilizer applied. However, if the slow-release fertilizer you apply takes 3 months to release, and the release is linear, [Plan A] would be like Plan D below: ++++++ Plan D +++++++ April - 1.0lb of N per 1000 sqft May - 1.0lb of ...

Re: How much fertilizer should I put down now

My ceiling rate on fast-release, synthetic is 1.0 pounds N per thousand square feet per month at once (things differ when spoon feeding). With lots of slow-release...I still wouldn't go higher in May, or ever feed before May 20th with a synthetic. Nor would I ever use much slow-release in May due t...
