Re: My soil SUCKS Please Help

Post up your soil test when you get it. I am curious to see the results. Looking at your yard, I know what I'd probably do if it were my yard, but I'll wait to see the results.

Re: Anyone on here used this humic acid?

Well after watching the YouTube video grassandwater12 posted I canceled my order. I watched another YouTube video that had a product link to 5 pounds of 90% humic acid for around $28 https://www.amazon.com/Soluble-Humic-Acid-Powder-Organic/dp/B07149WC8M Thrownerdown I checked the mixture rate and y...

Re: My soil SUCKS Please Help

Have you aerated yet? I'm talking the 'ole fashion way and not that liquid stuff. Also, since you applied Pre emergent there will be no seeding yet. How much of the pre-emergent did you apply (i.e. for a how many months)? Just keep it in the back of your mind that this will be a "marathon" and not a...

Re: Fungicide Guide

... Great post. Would you be interested in giving your opinion on TTTF? I have a new lawn (planted last August). Deciding if I do preventative fungicide or wait to see if I have fungus issues.

Re: Fungicide Guide

Honestly, this is only year two so I don’t know. It was brand new sod last year. I had some leaf spot? towards the end but not too bad. More of a preventative measure right now. And frankly, I’m just assuming that may/June and Sept/oct are my pressure months Matix99def are your using the preventati...

Re: Weed killing question plz help

Speedzone already contains a surfactant, and adding one increases damage to desirable turf. I figured this out the hard way. Spiking a selective herbicide with Tenacity is a good idea as it adds another mode of action. Mesotrione is quite different than 2,4-D, Dicamba, etc. that are in Speedzone. A...

Re: Weed killing question plz help

+1 ^ Tenacity is great for some specific weeds that other herbicides won’t affect. Save the big guns for those problems. For your situation speedzone is more than potent. Add surfactant to help it stick to weeds better. Adding micro green in that mix is very doable ( thats the value of spraying - m...

Re: Low Phosphorus / Potassium Yard Mastery

If there's a Site One nearby, they should have some 10-0-20 or 0-0-20 (50lb bag), which is 100% Sulfate of Potash (SOP). The 18-24-12 is Muriate of Potash (MOP).

Re: Low Phosphorus / Potassium Yard Mastery

I suggest Lesco starter fertilizer 18-24-12 (50lb bag). Apply at 4lbs/1000 and you get .75N, 1lb. P and .5lb K and only use 12lbs. You can get up to 4 applications out of the one bag and it will be whole lot cheaper than the NeXt product and you can get more pounds to the ground from the one bag. Th...

Re: New Hampshire assistance?

I don't live in NH and can't help with finding a company, but I am curious about some things. The 500 lbs. of lime over 4k lawn seems excessive (125lbs per 1k), but I will assume that is what the soil test called for. Did you apply the lime in one application or over several applications? Of the 1 a...

Re: Help in New Jersey

The first step to success is deciding to do the work yourself. Do you have an irrigation system? I would do step 1 as suggested by Chris, after pulling your soil samples, that way you can feed your lawn and start working on stopping some nasty summer weeds/crabgrass from further invading your lawn a...

Re: Weed killing question plz help

I have not used Tenacity, so I can't speak on it, but why not mix the Speedzone and the 0-0-2 together and do one application. That is what I do. I also add a surfactant into the mix. I'd say save the expensive Tenacity for other duties as the Speedzone should take care of those weeds.

Re: Too early for brown patch in NW Missouri?

The trick with fungus is you need to use (alternate) at least 2 different modes of actions to fight it because it will become immune to one mode of action if used too much. For example Group 3 and 11. This Product has 2 modes of action in the one product for fungus treatment (3 & 11), so you only ha...
