Re: Certainty second application

Unless I’m misunderstanding the OP he’s going after the TF not triv. If that’s the case if it were me (having done what he’s trying to do) I would hit the TF again label be damned. He has great response and TF once in that state is on the ropes and can be killed off. I did a three round application ...

Re: Certainty second application

Where are you located? With the good response you are seeing to the TF on the ropes I’d be inclined to do a second application as I bet you’ll kill quite a bit of it even with just the second app. That’s a really good response you’ve got going. Even if you don’t get 100% kill once you reduce the TF ...

Re: Thick lawn = mowing issues

Not yet but I applied preventative this year. Spending 40 minutes blowing all the clumps after each mow is getting old quick and with shorter daylight hours I usually have to mow one day and blow the clippings the next day. I’m mowing every other day right now. Definitely won’t be adding any more fe...

Re: Sourcing Sulfate of Potash and Urea in Massachusetts

As a back up if you can’t find bags of urea, Miracle grow lawn food is around 92 percent urea. You even apply it as a liquid.

Not the most economical but it is an effective product.

Re: Cut quality & Fungal??? Issues

Regarding mowers and clippings. It’s all about blade speed. This is why commercial mowers use more blades that spin faster to get better cut quality. I’m in the same boat as my JD tractor is leaving clippings that require I use a backpack blower after every cut not that my lawn has gotten very thick...

Re: KBGKA rear yard reno

Color has evened out. I have a few sporadic weeds pop up but I hand pluck them. The area closest to the camera is where the water runs down hill off the driveway as it’s a slope. I’ve seeded the area and since my rear yard is not irrigated I’m using a ghetto sprinkler system to water in the heavy fe...

Re: Quinclorac or Glyphosate to remove Crab Grass for Fall Reno.....

I even posted my results in the renovation page on killing CG with Tenacity. A single application will kill some of it and stunt the rest of it. What I’ve found is Tenacity ain’t all that great as a CG preM.... Tenacity can definitely kill mature CG. Interesting. I once wrote "Tenacity is also capab...

No, it doesnt do much to mature CG. You can apply seed a day after applying glyohosate if its dried off. I dont know the details on quinclorac

Re: Starting to think my lawn doesn't like iron

I use Moss Out, Milo, and Foliar sprays as mr iron.

My lawn still sucks up the iron on foliar applications.

How are the rest of your soil tests? Do you have a high pH?

Re: Sandy Soil

I’ve got sandy loam and have done a lot of half dose fertiliser applications and I’ve added 15 yards of compost and 6 yards of loam.

The lawn thickened up a lot after I did the cake boss frosting of compost over the lawn. Sucked doing it but seemed to help.

Re: Light green grass popping up everywhere :(

Are you heavy feeding? Pushing a lot of growth can make grass to be more lime green than dark green. Wow, thanks. Fingers crossed that it darkens and starts to grow normal (not super fast) at some point. I'm hoping that maybe I just did some really uneven apps of fert at some point and those spots w...

Look up a product called Mg Crete. It works.

I had some rough patches and the areas that sat under the garage doors of my old house that had started crumbing.

Stuff is amazing. I even epoxy coated afterwards. Wish I had taken pictures.

The Tenacity did better than Quinclorac would havevdone on the varying maturity levels of the CG. However I think Quinclorac seems to do better with residual kill of new CG plants.
