Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

I have decided what to do. Since the days are getting longer and the sustained lower temps are behind us, the Kik is starting to wake up. I need to spray out some broadleaf weeds in the front lawn area. So to reduce stress on the lawn, I am going to let it all grow out to about 1.5", the lowest on m...

Is the main front a mix?
Yes. Kikuyu and St. Augustine, that has been overseeded by PRG. PRG is the SS 9000.

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

Finally dried out from the last storm, and I was able to get another mow in. 2 weeks left until I have to go back to the office, so the commute might cut into my mow time. Trying to decide where to go from here. Should I should start a PGR treatment to keep it low, or just let it get longer in the 2...

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

Rained past couple days, and was able to get another mow in before the next storm hit.

Honored to be nominated for LOTM. :D

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

Nice journal. That warm season mix does not look bad at all. Since it's doing well, and also allowing PR to survive, why not consider just doing a yearly (if needed) PR overseed in early Fall, right into the Kikuyu/etc. mix? Kikuyu is be coming more accepted as a turfgrass lately, and the Bermuda y...

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

Dropped it to 0.5”.

It’s starting to strip much better. Single doubles, oriented so the darker wider stripes face the street.

Re: 2021 | What did you do with your lawn today?

Mowed the PRG at .7". The Kik is still not dormant, but has really slowed down. The parkway is pure PRG and is darker because the Kik is starting to yellow in the yard.

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

I guess I will call this a mid-season update comparison since the new grass is still only a couple months old. I probably will want to do another comparison in late spring. Feels like all the work on the reno was worth it. :D After https://i.postimg.cc/RFFMYMTx/IMG-4618.jpg Before https://i.postimg....

My PRG is not striping as well. Maybe I need a real reel roller.

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

The parkway recovered from the burn, and no sign of weeds at this point. Still have some thin areas that just won't fill in completely. The front yard is not striping as well as I would have hoped. The St. Augustine and Kikuyu have yet to go dormant, so I think that has something to do with it. Look...

Re: Is Bermudagrass overrated?

At least in my location Kikuyu is more of an alpha grass than bermuda. My Kikuyu grows faster, spreads farther and stays greener. Kikuyu is so alpha, most of you in the US can't even legally grow it. :lol: Given I have not given bermuda a fair shot, as I have a nameless common variety in patches aro...

Re: ShadowGuy's Lawn Journal - Kikuyu to PRG

Couple of setbacks. The kikuyu was coming back quickly on the parkway, so a few days ago I used some Image All in One (quinoclorac & sulfentrazone). Mixed it light, but it still discolored. On the positive side it wiped out the kikuyu, it appears to have burnt the tips of the PRG, and I am hoping it...
