Re: How’s my dirt look?

You did a heck of a job removing the wood chips! There should be no problem. I had a front yard tree removed and the stump and roots ground up. I then planted Tifway 419 plugs with no issues. My soil was no where near as clean as yours. :thumbup:

Re: Kelp4Less products for my TTTF lawn

Here's what I'm thinking after doing more reading etc. I will pre-mix the powder in a half gallon jug to create the concentrate that I'll poor directly into the Ortho hose end sprayer. Thoughts? Kelp4Less Mix/App Ratio - Water in after a couple of hours Extreme Blend = 3 Tablespoons in half gallon ...

Re: Kelp4Less products for my TTTF lawn

I just purchased four products from Kelp4Less. I emailed and asked them to suggest products that I could apply as a liquid that would help my TTTF lawn and the soil from recent new construction. The four products I have are Extreme Blend, Green Lawn and Turf, Iron Sulfate and Fulvic Humic Kelp Blen...

Re: TruCut Reel Mower Questions

Does anyone recognize these bushings that have come off my Tru-Cut C25? I found a couple fragments during the previous cut and again during today's cut. Definitely came from machine, they were blazing hot when I picked them up. Looks like a couple different sizes? Could it be the baffle inside the ...

Re: Too much PGR

I hope I didn’t just nuke my yard. First timer here putting down PGR. Ended up putting down TNex at about a rate of .5/1000sqft. Give it too me straight, how bad did I mess up? I use TNex and apply at .38/1000 sq. ft. for Tifway 419. The guide recommends .75/1000 for edging and banding so if anythi...

Re: TruCut Reel Mower Questions

My trucut ran out of gas with the blades off moving it around the house to put up. I tilted it back as I was going down a hill thinking it would get a little more gas. I didn’t think anything of it and put it away. Filled it with gas a week later to mow and now it won’t start. I read in this thread...

Re: 2nd year soil test results - Getting better but still need help!

I still consider myself a novice so everyone chime in. Your soil looks good. I would apply Sulfate of Potash (0-0-50) to address both your sulfur and potassium shortage. You will probably have to order it online as it is difficult to find locally. I think SOP contains around 17% sulfur. You don't ne...

Re: Compliments!

Lawn results jaded your perspective. It happens! History states the word jaded is perhaps related to the noun jade, an old term for a broken-down horse. The moral of the story is don't become a broken-down horse achieving a beautiful lawn or you may not live to enjoy it. :lol:

Re: Do I have too much thatch?

The first two pics appear to be dead grass and not technically thatch. I am not sure about the bottom pic. If it bothers you dethatch or rake again. Another alternative would be to purchase and apply some liquid dethatch so the microbes eat it up. :thumbup:

Re: Did my grass die?

I doubt the grass is dead. Stop watering daily and water once a week heavily. If you haven't already, scalp it down as low as you can without scraping the ground. Collect or bag your clippings. It will eventually green and thicken up unless you have excessive shade. An aeration would be helpful and ...

Re: Kelp4Less MKP and Extreme Blend ?

I do not think that a tsp per gallon of Extreme Blend will hurt anything applied by itself. Last summer I overused it as a weekly supplement and the turf got a little toasty. This year, I am applying every other week as a supplement and adding more humic, fulvic, and sea kelp to my mix. Learning on ...

Re: Kelp4Less MKP and Extreme Blend ?

My soil test UGA showed two years ago that I was low on P and K. I noticed this past season that my root establishment and overall health of the Bermuda was questionable. https://i.postimg.cc/dV85x0Gv/26-DDEFBB-0549-4-B5-B-89-F5-54991-DD6-C2-B7.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/VvQRgQ55/FAAED1-F2-EB8-A-42-F...

Did a soil test reveal you need that much phosporus? You can mix Extreme Blend with just about anything. If I am not mistaken the NPK analysis for Extreme Blend is 12-0-6.

Re: What type of mower should I get?

With the slopes in the front yard I vote reel mower with tires. I don't think a rotary mower will ever provide the quality cut you want on the Tifway 419. :thumbup:
