Overseeding area impacted by fungus

In spite of several preventative applications of azoxystrobin and propacanizol, and a curative application, I have areas that were hit hard by fungus. My tentative plan is to rake these areas, put seed down, and top with peat moss. Is there anything else I should do given the fungal outbreak? I’m no...

Re: Pizza

https://slice.seriouseats.com/2012/10/the-pizza-lab-baking-steel-lodge-cast-iron-pizza.html K&N, here is a pretty good article that reviews various makes of pizza steel. Mine is not stainless and I’m not sure if others are (they can rust so I hand wash and dry them, much like a cast iron pan). This ...

Re: Pizza

Quick update: having had seven months and a few dozen cooks, I’ve decided I like the pizza steel better than ceramic. I think the crust is better and cooks faster. My steel is a little smaller than my ceramics but I can live with that and am getting a better feel for the adjusted measurements. Frien...

I’m told he said Moghu’s phone is ringing off the hook not only from golf courses, but landscapers, homeowners, etc trying to get it. They are very rigorous and strict about registration and sale. ...

Re: Status of POACure? (Updated 02/2020 below)

I just wanted to pass along a conversation I had with our golf course grounds superintendent yesterday. He purchased Poacure and did a trial run on a fairway that had Poa trivialis in it. He is extremely happy with the results and this was just from an application a couple months ago. I checked the ...

Re: Oak tree saplings in yard

Thanks for the input, guys. I guess I’ll keep mowing and not worry about it, or maybe hit them with triclopyr once the weather cools.

Oak tree saplings in yard

I’ve got more than a dozen mature oak trees in my backyard and it seems there were an inordinately high number of acorns last fall. I’ve probably got 200 or more that have emerged as couple inch saplings. I mow at 3” to 3.5” so they are below the cut line. I assume that as they grow the mower will c...

So Andy, do you generally recommend purchasing seed you’ll use in the Fall in early Spring? Thanks.

Re: Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass

Very, very nice! Did you keep the pot outside the entire time? I have some bewitched pots going for about 10 days. I seeded them sparingly because the last set I probably overseeded and got some fungus. I’ve brought them inside for at least part of the time due to the heat.

Re: Late Start, But Nice Progress: Andy10917 Photo

Very, very nice. So with emblem not around anymore do you patch (e.g., the triv spots you mention) with other seed or do you take some plugs from the emblem portion of the lawn?

Re: Pseudo-first generation lawn guy - First time sodder need help!

Again, I’m not an expert with sod but watering 4-5 times a day for 5 minutes each time doesn’t seem excessive based on what I’ve read from sod farms and others. Maybe if the soil was compacted and you didn’t have good drainage it could have caused that. In my case, it wasn’t fungus but a certain amo...

Re: Pseudo-first generation lawn guy - First time sodder need help!

I’m not an expert in sod but will relay to you my one experience. I had unwanted zoysia invading an area on the far side of the driveway last year. I decided to have the 1000sq ft area sodded and a landscaper installed it. This was late July when it was really hot and this area is full sun. Although...

It is technically capable of germinating, but totally impractical. You'd have to let it mature on the plant for 3-4 months, dry it out for a month, and then harvest the actual seeds from the seedheads. Who's gonna do that? :no:
Thanks Andy

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. TT: yes I acknowledge the problems of sod rel...

It seems like the easy way to go would be with the sod.
Definitely the easiest way, Masbustello. There are the issues Turftoes direst, though.
