Re: Tire tracks on front lawn - What would you do?

I'm all for the decorative boulders. If they still insist on running close, they will have a big ole repair bill. My parents have this issue, too.

Re: N-Ext Products

Interesting - Curious how this compares price-wise - ingredient-wise, it looks like a direct competitor to RGS. I just called my local Lesco and it is $134 a gallon. gp I really hope this is not the price. This is crazy the money companies are trying to make putting cheap products in a bottle for y...

Re: N-Ext Products

My math is a little different. Maybe I'm wrong? 5 gallons RGS = 640oz ($5 off coupon - cousineddie) https://thelawncarenut.com/collections/soil-optimization/products/n-ext-rgs-5-gallon 10k sq/ft lawn @ 3oz per application = 30oz RGS At 30oz of RGS per app - you get 21.33 applications in 640oz (5 ga...

Re: N-Ext Products

Is that the homeowner or business price? FYI. It's only 2 Oz per gallon, per 1k sq', so it may be a challenger, but I have not done the math yet. Homeowner price and it's (2) oz per 1,000 sq. ft. for the first application followed by (1) oz per 1,000 sq. ft. per month or every time fertilizer is ap...

Re: N-Ext Products

That mean the business cost should be significantly less. SiteOne always nails the homeowner in pricing.

Re: N-Ext Products

Additionally, I've found a more potent Humic product (70% vs 12%) and applied it this fall and will do so again in the spring - again a long term solution with 2 applications per year (see below). Methodical, Just an FYI. You can get Anderson's Humic DG 40 lbs on the AM Leonard website for $42.99 a...

Nice write up! Your alternative to Humic 12 seems to be a better alternative for the price.
Thanks. I wish I could get that stuff locally because shipping is high, but at 2x/year I am ok with it.

Re: N-Ext Products

I'd also be curious to know who is using these products and how they are working. Where are people buying them? The fact that I've only seen these products on YouTube channels is a bit of a yellow flag for me , but I could be talked off that ledge. Rightfully so. These products come with claims tha...

Weeds in young grass - worried about spraying herbicide

I planted seeds in my parents lawn and some weeds are sprouting. I am a little concerned about spraying herbicide for fear of damaging the fairly new grass. I seeded the 1st week of September and I've mowed several times. Is there any herbicides that you can suggest to spray on the weeds that won't ...

Re: Happy Birthday thread

Thanks for the BD wishes. I had a great weekend. Me and few cycling buddies rode the Sea Gull Century on Saturday for a brisk 103 mile ride. Then I spent my actual birthday in the woods - Wildlife photography.

No yard work.

Re: 2018 Fall Nitrogen Blitz

Leaves keep falling through Christmas though. Fisrt frost is forecast for mid-November but often enough doesn’t come until the end of November. That has got to be annoying!

OP, here's a fertilizer rate calculator - save your brain and use this to determine the amount and rate of fertilizer to use.
