Re: Overseed question

thanks BP and Hoosier. Yes, I'm concerned about the darker colors of the elite KBG. I was hoping to get some of the benefits of the new cultivars (better disease resistance, better shade tolerance) without introducing a dark green that would look camoflauge, as you mention, Hoosier. That's why I was...

Overseed question

Hi, learning a lot for you folks. I would like to overseed this fall. I have about 25,000 square feet of lawn so a renovation isn't something I feel ready to tackle. My lawn is a northern mix of the usual grasses from 50 years of Scott's sun and shade. While a dark green would be appealing if I did ...

Re: Rutgers Turfgrass Survey

I was there too. Kind of fun. The survey was constructed and research primarily being conducted by the university of Minnesota. Rutgers is helping with the research by providing a site (one of many I assume)where samples can be compared and judged based on the factors and characteristics Eric mentio...

Eric, maybe we can sell our JD tractors there and buy a couple of zeros or commercial walk-behinds.....

Re: Grubs

Jason, yes I saw the article, thanks. Same here, shelves stocked with Grubex right now and NO Bayer other than the killer I put down 6 weeks or so ago. Thanks again.

Re: Grubs

Jason, to follow up on your point regarding the new Grubex, the Scott's 800 number has an automatic voice response for Grubex application time saying that it can be applied from spring to early summer, yet if you stay and the line and ask they admit it's too late for NJ and probably most other local...

Re: Anyone have this 48 inch Husqvarna riding mower?

I think you need to get comfortable with what you will tow with a zero turn. They do have hitches but my understanding is that the tow capacity of most zero transmissions is not very substantial. If you want to tow a bag of seed and a rake that might be fine but if you're towing a leaf vacuum or fir...

Re: Timing of grub control and fertilizer

Thanks Paul, this is a 28-3-3. I probably won't be a Scott's guy after I use up what my dad had, which is some more step 2, 3, and winterized. It's either use it or dispose of it so I thought I'd try to use it then move onto other products. I'm not real crazy about my Scott's spreader either and loo...

Re: Another New Guy

Eric, thanks for the info. And good for you on the zero turn. I should do that too. I partially bought the JD tractor because I have a DR leave vacuum that I love and thought the tractor would be better to pull it but I guess the zeros have two bars--bad research on my part.....

Re: Timing of grub control and fertilizer

Hey Paul, I putthe killer down earlier to kill live ones I saw in the yard, and planned on putting down the preventative all season long one mid June. I have some time today so thought I'd put the Bayer preventative ans step 2 down both. The only info I saw on Grubex and step 2 came from a Scott's s...

Timing of grub control and fertilizer

I recently learned on this forum and then by reading various university extension sites that the combo products like step 2 are not ideal. Having said that I have several bags from my dad and thought I'd put that down. I used the Bayer grub killer a month or so ago because I had a visible grub probl...

Re: Another New Guy

Thanks for the welcome CT. I'll have to figure out how to post pictures, sounds stupid but I just haven't done it before. By way of update, I'm reasonably pleased that much of the poa annua has died or at least is less visible and the KBG seems to be crowding it out. This is especially the case in t...

Re: Another New Guy

Thanks for the welcome, folks! Hoosier, the quack grass problem is really minor, with the bigger issue ppoa annua and Charlie. Jason, good idea with the toupees an and seeding then following with stronger pm after seeding. I didn't think of that and thought I wouldn't be able to seed this fall. Eric...

Hi everyone. I came across this site a month or so ago and have learned a tremendous amount since. Many thanks to the members and especially Andy and mods. So a bit of background on my yard. I have a bit more than an acre in total, about 25,000 square feet is grass. I have a mix of sun and shade wit...
