Re: Red Tip Photinia Fungus

I feel you man. I've got four 20'+ red tips that create a wall along my fence line. They are probably my favorite group of plants in my back yard. All are dying. I've cut down a third. It's a lot of material to bundle, so I'm doing it in stages. As much as I love those plants, if their is no way the...

A project from over the winter to free up some garage space and make a home for all my extra wood. https://i.postimg.cc/1zS6KTmB/20190105-121632.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/fbMtd9Cg/20190106-131423.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/gJnvwhkb/20190113-173335.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/c13nV0vh/20190113-182546.jpg

Ground Cover - Morning Glory

Has anyone used Morning Glory (Ipomoea tricolor) as a bed ground cover?
I germinated varieties Heavenly Blue, Pearly Gates and Grandpa Ott.
Has anyone seen good coverage? Tips?

Re: Scalping St Augustine

St Aug doesn't go dormant so you don't need to do this. ^ Not sure how accurate that is. Feb 10, 2018 - Much colder winter. Lawn is very dormant. https://i.postimg.cc/9f9q7fzh/20180210-180616.jpg Feb 10, 2019 - Fairly warm winter. Lawn isn't fully dormant. https://i.postimg.cc/Hs8s6h4Y/20190326-201...

I have the same unit and have been happy. Keep you batteries charged all season and put a little Vaseline on the rubber seal on top of the strainer basket and life will be good.
Is the Vaseline to keep the rubber seal from drying out and cracking?

Re: Rookie questions

Get something like spectracide weed concentrate from lowes, less than $10 and will do a good job killing what I see in these pics. erdons 's recommendation is good while your grass is still dormant. Most herbicides need to be applied to the leaf surface of an actively growing plant. If your grass i...

Re: Clear hose on backpack sprayer

I realize how dumb this sounds, and Mightyquinn 's solution is most likely best, but it's just an idea. Maybe place an open zip lock bag of rice or kitty litter in the tank after you've rinsed it. Seal the tank with the lid. I'm not sure if the internal valves would prevent the excess moisture in th...

Pre Emergent Soil Temp Window

What is the soil temperature range to apply a Spring pre emergent? It's my understanding that seed germination is around 70 degrees (+/- depending on species), so a good window to apply is around the 60-65 degree range. If I put pre em down too early, I'm afraid the pre em will be less effective at ...

Split into 3 applications skipping the high heat of summer (less likely for weeds to survive?)? I dont think the 4th app is necessary for summer breakthrough.
