Re: TeeJet Nozzle Discussion

So I just put together my DFW Wand. Looks good. What is the hose that most people are using for the hookups between tank and wand?

I've seen a variety of hoses online, but some are too stiff, others too flexible, some are transparent, others are not, some may not be chemical safe.

Re: Fertilizer Plan for Central Tx St Aug after Winter

Same question here in DFW? I keep second guessing myself for when to drop. With things warming up and a little green starting on the St Aug, I'm thinking maybe a slow-release organic fert?

@rjw0283 , I'm with you. I have a ton of earthworms that keep things well fertilized. I am not ok with killing them.

@rjw0283 , I haven't heard much good news about repelling them other than to try and address eliminating their food source.

Re: DFW Sprayer Wand

So I'm going to overhaul my two sprayers with a full-tilt DFW Wand reset. I've done TeeJet tips already with my M4Sons sprayer using the standard wand. I see a lot of commentary on the components, fittings and nozzle tips. What hose are you using for all of these adaptations? My hand sprayer is work...

Re: UltimateLawn's DFW St. Augustine Journal

My rotation includes Clearys, Azoxy & Propiconazole, so the chems are stocked. Last year I sprayed as a corrective, not a preventative. It would be good to get ahead of this a bit. It seems that there are a lot of opinions out there as to when to apply these fungicides. To avoid any symptoms, how do...

Re: Help with some general st augustine questions.

ionicatoms , Good to know! I've been shying away from it from this fear. Something to use in the Spring maybe. I just dropped some Celsius for the first time today. We'll see how that goes.

Dollarweed usually responds well to most broadleaf herbicides. This time of year I would use 2,4-D. Celsius would be the go-to product once things warm up.
@Redtwin ,
I thought that 2,4-D was not compatible with St Aug?

Re: Good Post Emergence for St Aug

I had good results killing Virginia buttonweed with Blindside. It stressed my St Aug significantly but I was probably spraying when it was too hot.

Re: Honda Walk-behind Wide Area Mower

@Trojanone1 , I get around 45 minutes for my 5,000 ft2. I have a number of trees, beds and other obstacles. Obstacle free I would get done in about 30 minutes.

Yes, edging and trimming is an additional 30 minutes for me...lots of beds!
