Re: Weed control over seeded PRG

I don't think it would hurt anything as long as you follow any special instructions on the label.

Most guys and golf courses that over-seed skip all fall weed control apps. If you have weed problems then you should skip over-seeding until control is achieved.
Agree. I skipped fall/winter pre-e altogether when I overseeded in 2017 with no ill effects. I will probably do the same this year.

Re: Weed control over seeded PRG

Most Prodiamine labels I have seen say to wait 60 days before applying to overseeded turf.

And it's normal to apply some Nitrogen to the PRG.

I use Fluid Film on my hedge trimmer blades. My local Stihl dealer recommended it. I use it on all sorts of stuff now. :thumbup:

...I've seen where some kill off the Perrenial Rye in the spring with a chem app, do you do the same with annual? I know this Houston heat will ultimate push the Annual Rye out, but I may want to accelerate the end of the rye!!
I would kill it - rye can be allelopathic.

Re: Propane Fire Pits - Preferred Vendors

Looking to buy a quality propane fire pit, looking for recommended vendors. I've been to the local big boxes, and while the supply is decent I can't really tell if the craftsmanship is solid. Can anyone recommend a supplier, either a big box or something else? I have a Cor-Ten steel fire pit from S...

Is there a negative effect of the nitrogen or is it just a waste of money?

Re: Oops, is this my grass?

Since you were applying a balanced fertilizer (1-1-1 ratio), I would probably just chill until spring. I would definitely not apply any additional Nitrogen this late in the season.

Re: Perennial Rye Grass

Im struggling to get it lower. With the time change, its dark when i get home. So i only get to mow on weekends. The stuff is at 4 inches in a week. Interesting on the growth rate of that annual rye. Perennial rye grows much slower. I'm currently mowing my PRG about once a week at 5/8". Sometimes I...

My Bermuda lawn is still majority green. The next three days will see temperatures below freezing. Should I be worried about the freeze killing the grass? Are there any precautions I should take?
No need to worry at all. It will go dormant, then wake back up in the spring. :thumbup:

Re: Bermuda Grass in Flowerbeds

I use Fertilome Over The Top II. It is safe to spray on/around most ornamentals. If there is nothing around it I just use glyphosate.

Thank you, and I suppose that is right. I will go ahead and run the spreader and get some down, and thanks, I look forward to my new "hobby" and learning here with everyone :)
Keep in mind it will need about a half inch of rainfall or irrigation within 2 weeks after application.
