Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

6th mow of the season. That's not bad, but it was only 3 days since I last cut. Ready for the Primo to kick in any time now!

Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

Irrigation system turned up, and installed indicator pop-ups for the drips in the wife's gardens. Round IV of Velocity, and I think the tide is turning in my favor. For now. Oze what are you going after with Velocity? I just laid down 1st app of Certainty bc my 2 year old reno had a Triv outbreak S...

Re: Man vs Wild (Poa trivialis)

Have you tried Certainty or weighed the options vs Velocity? Just reading the label of Velocity seems like a miracle product.. After reading the label (over and over), I don't think I would apply Velocity to anything other than PR or creeping bent. Although it is apparently also harmless to TTTF, I...

Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

Second day of applying neighbor repellent. Yesterday was Milo, today Serenade.

Spot-sprayed a single dandelion I found in my yard, bordering the neighbor's dandelion/clover plantation. Played border patrol agent, and reinforced the broadleaf killer barricade.

Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

Sprayed Velocity on every light green spot and continent in my yard. I am following the same slow conversion plan as Oze. I did some spot spraying last week in the back yard to make sure I wasn't going to damage my TTTF. So far so good. Good to hear that Velocity is OK on TTTF. My lawn is mostly (o...

Mowed the front, then put on my boots, and mowed the back. :sigh: I need things to dry out a bit before hitting the evil poa twins with their next dose of Velocity.

Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

Constant, light rain here the last week or so, which is perfect for my clay (Yes, clay!) soil. 5 days after my 3rd mowing, and it really needs a trim again. Too darn wet though, unfortunately. I'm actually thinking about applying the first inoculation rate of Serenade.

Checked on my duck. Mowed for third time. Neighbor said he has to have surgery in a couple weeks and was going to hire somone to mow his lawn so I told him I'd cover it for him. Looks like I'll be mowing double this spring :) That's what I call being a good neighbor! Good on ya, Chuck! :clapping:

Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

I applied my first application of Velocity to some patches in the back yard. I have a huge continent of it in the front but will wait to see how the back reacts first. Thank you for posting your conversion earlier in this thread to teaspoons, that made my life much easier. I know this is going to b...

A balmy 34 degrees here in Fort Wayne. Applied SOP, MAP and another spot application of Velocity. By the way, I noticed that the Evil Poa Twins really pop out when I am wearing polarized sunglasses on a clear day like today. Touche', ya little bright green bastids! :duel:

Re: Local Source for SOP and MAP !

Just got back from what should have been a pleasant drive through Amish country to pick up 52 pounds each of SOP and MAP ($54 total--less than I paid for just SOP last year) in Honeyville, Indiana. *Should* have been pleasant, except for two things--the blinding snowfall made it difficult to enjoy t...

Speaking of BLSC...Andy, I think I recall that you were working on a new formula, right? Or maybe I just dreamed that over the cold winter nights.

Re: 2016: What did you do to or on your lawn today?

Spot-sprayed triv/annua areas with Velocity @ the slow conversion rate of 2oz/acre. It comes to just under 3/8 teaspoon per gallon of water for 1000 square feet. Or, for my purposes, 1/8 teaspoon of Velocity in 43 ounces of water for 300 square feet. The half-gram accurate scale and 3rd grade math ...
