Thanks so much. I'll take a look at the Kobalt (and Ego).

Battery-powered leaf blower suggestions

My small but useful gas blower (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VYC31Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) may be on the outs (I'm going to have it looked at, but if I need to replace it I was thinking of going the battery route). Any suggestions on a good one? I have a backpack b...

Should I mow high or low when mulching leaves?

I have 2 areas on my lawn right now with pretty heavy leaves. I blow them around a little bit to try and even though out across the yard, but for the most part they are concentrated in these 2 areas. In any case, I'm starting to mow lower on the yard in general (3" or a notch lower), but should I mo...

30% off Scotts Starter with Tenacity

Sorry if not appropriate to post this, but it's a pretty good deal (especially for a shipped item, in case you can't get this locally).

Amazon has 30% off today only I think (must have Prime):

Is this a fungus or something else?

My parents (in NY) had their lawn aerated and overseeded a couple of weeks ago. I think they were then watering too much (I told them to slow down a few days ago).

They just texted me this today. Any thoughts on what it is/how to fix it?

Thanks!

Re: Is this the correct plan for killing bentgrass with tenacity?

Agreed! Unfortunately, past few years I seem to kill both good grass and bad grass, and the bad stuff still comes back! :(

Re: Source for Urea or AS in CT?

You could try Benedict's in Monroe

https://www.benedictsgarden.com/

I've gotten it there in the past (sometimes they have to order it first though).

Re: Is this the correct plan for killing bentgrass with tenacity?

The part at the top middle of the pic (near the shrubs by the end of the driveway) is stark white (as are some smaller areas to the right along the driveway). The rest is more yellow/white (though may just need more time to turn white, or perhaps was white and is now dying). https://i.postimg.cc/8F...

Re: Is this the correct plan for killing bentgrass with tenacity?

I don't think it's nimblewill but i'll try to look closer. Also, even before I asked my question I had sprayed tenacity on 9/5 (a little heavy perhaps) and wow is my lawn lit up... I'll post a picture later (right now the sun is too glary). At this point I'll just keep hitting it every couple of wee...

Is this the correct plan for killing bentgrass with tenacity?

3 applications, 14 days apart, starting late August/early September, at a rate of 4oz/acre? And when is the latest that it's ok/effective to spray? Finally, to confirm, for 4 oz/acre it's .5 tsp in a 1 gallon (or 1 tsp in a 2 gallon) pump sprayer, and that can be used to spot spray 1k sq ft? Thank y...

Measuring tenacity

Is this (https://www.amazon.com/Teaspoon-Handle- ... B07TXLDDQV) just as good as using the syringe it comes with? Or do I need a measuring spoon for liquids?

Thanks.

Re: Fallowing

If it were me? And it was me? (Although I was using alternates at the time, not Tenacity) Use Tenacity at seed down and one month later, then use a pre-emergent in spring and again in fall. That will zap 95% of the issue. Spot-spray with Tenacity that second year as necessary to remove the inevitab...

Ok thanks all. I think I've got it now. And no, I definitely won't do anything I'm not supposed to... ;)
