Re: Feature 6-0-0 Max Rate You’ve Used?

Can you apply the Feature 6-0-0 on really hot days? It's in the mid-90's here and I don't want to burn the lawn, also do you need to water it in after application in this heat?

Re: New Heads For Higher Shrubs

If I use drip lines are there any design or calculators for what size tubing? If you're using drip line do you have to loop it around the plant or just on one side? I currently have three pop up Hunter Pro Spray in each landscape bed.

Re: New Heads For Higher Shrubs

I'm just not sure how much each plant needs. This would be my first try with drip irrigation and have anything from small flowers to japanese maple in size.

Re: Next year burn down

No way I would give up on Palisades this quickly. This is my second full year with it and it's just now starting to really come into its own.

New Heads For Higher Shrubs

I redesigned my flowerbeds this fall and planted some liriope and shrubs. I currently have Hunter Pro Spray 4 inch pop ups that spray toward the shrubs and other flowers but the problem is the liriope has grown higher than the 4 inch pop ups and blocks most of the water spray. Should I just ditch po...

Re: suggestions on mowing celebration

It was last year when I laid the palisades and I think it took about three weeks to mow. I really like palisades but it’s definitely slower growing.

Re: suggestions on mowing celebration

I laid my celebration about 9 days ago and it is rooted really well, tried to pull some up tonight and could not do it without almost ripping the sod. It's supposed to be over 90 or near that the next few days. When I get back from a weekend trip out of town I'm going to put some 11-11-11 ProPeat on...

@CarolinaCuttin where do you get it from online? I only have 500 sq feet so a little should go a long way.

Re: Need to stock up, what to buy?

I've never used 20-20-20 so it would be new to me as well. I'm wondering if a backpack would provide enough volume of water without burning the grass?

Re: Need to stock up, what to buy?

@Redtwin did you have any trouble with even distribution with such a small amount of area? That's where liquid seems like a better plan since I'm in the same situation, laid about 500 sq feet of Celebration.

Re: Need to stock up, what to buy?

@greendoc I just laid celebration and was going to wait a month but I guess I don’t need to. My soil test I just had said soil was low of N,P, and K to with low CEC.

Fungus Explosion

I had a few weak areas in the centipede section of my lawn that were recovering from fall damage and actually starting to fill in until today. I noticed a huge explosion in those areas and looks like it’s spread to others just today. I’m thinking it’s large patch since the temps are in the 60’s at n...

Re: Midwest Labs Warm Season Lawn Test Advice

I spoke with one of the agronomist at Midwest and he said the OM was an error on the computer program. @g-man and @Ridgerunner he also said the gypsum was to flush some of the sodium out of the soil since it was at 31 ppm. Anyways, good customer service responding right away this morning.

I’m having heck finding SOP anywhere near me. I’ve called every store around me and had no luck. I’ll definitely do the half rates when I get it. Thanks for the advice everyone.

Re: Celebration Bermuda Worth The Wait?

Yeah I guess it’s worth the wait after reading everyone’s comparisons on here. I’m hoping the rain holds off this week so they can get in the field.
