You can use Roundup for Lawns Crabgrass Destroyer for a cheaper way to get pylex.

Dang, I didn't even think of that . . . Thanks.

Post-Emergent This Late??

I've noted several pre and post emergent questions. Here's another.

If I spray for crabgrass now and it dies, will some winter weed come in and take over the bald spot? No way centipede will fill in or establish healthy roots this late in the year.

Post post-emergent for Dandelions

We had two days of rain over the weekend and dang, now have dandelions and dollarweed in my Centipede grass. I spray my yard once a year with Spectracide Weed Stop For Lawns Plus Crabgrass Killer Concentrate just as the grass is starting to green up and I usually never see dandelions other than in m...

I would've never guessed this

This is not a question, more like venting. I've been fighting "something" that left my floribunda roses look patchy. Something was nibbling on the foliage. I'd have a nice long stem with new buds, then a couple of days later the stem was broken and the bud/rose was gone. Maybe those late night rain/...

Re: Small fridge in garage for expensive chemicals, overkill?

I "inherited" a old refrigerator with a broken compressor when I purchased my home. I had plenty of paint cans, paint thinners, a product to remove old laminate flooring, dry wall mud, wood stains, etc. My son was six at the time and I made it very clear what not to touch. My biggest worry was not m...

Re: Sea Urchin Invader

Based on the jet stream, we pretty much get your weather. We didn't experience a too terrible summer, but steady rain showers in August and September really assisted with the weed production this year. I'm surprised Meso didn't do a better job. Since the turf grasses are the last to "green up" in th...

Re: Sea Urchin Invader

I'm in South Carolina and getting it too. It's fescue. Sometimes it is mistaken for crabgrass, especially in turf grasses (crabgrass has a larger flat blade). Most will tell you there is no other solution except to spray it out with the active ingredient glyphosate, "Roundup", but I try my best to d...

Re: Weed identification in Centipede grass

Photo 1: The dark green small leaf is lespedeza, some call it common lespedeza or Japanese clover. We get it every year and it can easily choke out thin turf grass. We have a couple of farms in the area that plant it for the cows to graze on.

I like the Celsius as well.

Re: HEEEEELP!!! What happened to my Saint Augustine??!!!

Where there's “shrooms”, there's water. too much water, when it comes to turf grass. I got a nice case of brown patch two years ago from trees removed five years ago. Seems the guy who cut down the trees thought it would be ok to use some mulch from having the stumps ground to fill the hole left by ...
