Another spot seeding question.

I didn’t want to hijack southern’s thread but I have some similar questions. I had some triv spots on which I’ve used roundup, let fallow, used roundup again, let fallow. I was debating on waiting to reseed until August or get some sod and replace it now. In either case I’d dig up the dead triv and ...

Re: How long does serenade smell bad?

Thanks NE. I think I’m okay with it going away overnight or so but if it were a few days that’d be a concern. I drop Milo a lot and it goes away pretty quickly to me. Something like the deer spray seems to last longer and I don’t like to use that if people are outside next door. Thanks again.

How long does serenade smell bad?

I don’t really care myself but I’m concerned about my neighbors who have pretty much been living on their patio during the last month of Covid19. Our lots are a bit more than an acre but my neighbors patio and pool is about 30’ from my property line. Does the smell dissipate within an hour or so or ...

Re: Reno - Seed Superstore Recommendation

The ss1100 blend has very good cultivars in it. I would go with that of what you listed. I have seen some pictures of beautiful Ryegrass lawns so a Perennial Rye blend should be on your list. If you have a lot of shade, then Bluegrass may not be great. I would try Tall Fescue before Fine Fescue wit...

Re: Snow on May 9th? Really?

Several andromeda shrubs we have had new growth turn brown in a frost a couple weeks ago. Crazy weather.

Re: Serenade Sticker Shock, any big box sources?

Pour into a smaller container then out of that. Turkey baster. Siphon. Add a spigot. Thanks Timmy. I had visions of dropping the2.5 gallon jug. Reading the label it sounds like this stuff is toxic but after doing a search on this site it sounds like it’s not so bad. One more question if I may, is t...

Re: Cut quality & Fungal??? Issues

I have an Exmark 30” commercial walk behind that I love. It gives me a better cut than my John Deere lawn tractor. Do you have any trees, hills, things to maneuver around? I'm reading that the Exmark can be a little big/heavy for that kind of mowing. I don’t really have hills but have many mature o...

Currently I’m shopping for a commercial walk behind.
I'm looking to upgrade my walk behind as well. Have you found anything interesting?

Re: Timing of preventative fungicide

I'm not sure that there isn't a middle-ground between doing nothing and full-bore chemical fungicides - I've had a great deal of luck with "Serenade", which is a strain of beneficial bacteria that (naturally) preys on fungal diseases, and actually generates an antibiotic. I'm on year 8 or 9 of it d...

Question re painting triv with roundup

I have quite a bit of triv this year. A couple patches were sprayed with roundup and I’ll follow up with a second spray in a couple days. I remember reading about forum members who literally used a paint brush for some individual blades. I have tried that in some areas in which the triv was mixed wi...

Re: Poa Triv same color as bluegrass

Get rid of it if you can. It’ll turn lighter and then go dormant brownish in the heat. It’ll also grow faster so it won’t blend in. Also will have a different texture.

Re: Ugh!! Chapin 24V Sprayer Died

When I was putting away my MY4sons sprayer last fall I emailed to check with them what the best practice is as far as the battery. They suggested I recharge it every three or four months, which I did and it was fine this spring.

Hey Pway, I'm in S Plainfield. Newbie here. Just put in bluegrass sod in backyard last June. Joined here last month to learn how to maintain it.

Re: Timing of preventative fungicide

I used to get Red thread every year no matter what I did and what Fungicides I tried. The way I finally beat it was to blow up my Northern Mix and plant a mono stand of Bewitched. No more Red thread, problem solved! Not sure how old your lawn is, but the newer Cultivars are far more superior to dis...
