Looks like you’re winning the war and another successful reno. Nice work.

Re: Bug pumper 2020

Baretta sorry for the delay, here’s some shots from the other day. Tried checkerboard pattern on the front and turned out great. Hard to capture both directions in one picture lol https://i.postimg.cc/QMgQf33Z/01-B48-FDB-9152-4-C5-B-B770-8-E2200-E5928-B.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/vB3WdtTP/FE8-FBE3-E-...

Re: CFinden's Lawn Journal - BC, Canada

@Bug pumper I do, and I tried to take care of it for a couple years then we got a 100lb boxer mastiff... it's full of holes and pee spots. I'll take a couple photos of it today. I’m struggling with the fact that there’s a 2 week old chocolate lab with our name on it right now. Trying to enjoy the b...

Re: What should I add to my hydroseed blend?

Most KBG I believe is 3-4lbs/k although I’ve never hydroseeded so I’m not familiar with the process. I have experienced over crowding in TTTF in localized areas that were slow to take and I was impatient. The grass grows very slow and looks pale and although it is very thick at the time, the individ...

Re: Car Buying 🚙

I emailed 9 dealers across our province telling them exactly what I wanted and what their lowest price was. 4 didn’t even respond. The other 5 came in pretty close and I did a bit of back and forth with the 2 lowest seeing if they would beat the price. By the time I walked into the dealers I had agr...

You bet 5 bags and a couple for another member on the coast. My parents live on West side across from Vernon so should be easy to keep a stockpile.

Re: Bug pumper 2020

Really enjoying the front these days as I rarely see Poa seed heads anymore. It’s been a spring / summer of hands and knees hand pulling what pops up due to a spring overseed.

Re: Bug pumper 2020

Baretta i find the blue tip that comes with it is perfect for that much swath. I’m 6’4 and hold the nozzle around knee height. I haven’t felt I needed to purchase a Teejet for foliar apps. I’m sure I’ll end up getting one some day. I should have just bought one when I purchased the air induction te...

Re: CFinden's Lawn Journal - BC, Canada

Your lawn is looking awesome! Hard to believe it’s the same lawn from the start of this year. Amazing that stuff from the fall must have been lurking around in there still. Have you been able to identify what grass types are really taking well? Not sure if you know this but Growers Supply has a stea...

Ya I’ve been slacking in the journal department... Applied my first ever PGR this evening in the back lawn along with FAS. .25oz/k of Anuew 3.0oz / 2.5oz of FAS .5oz CA 2tbsp NIS. My rates for FAS before this were slightly higher, but this will be my second time spraying with CA and first time ever ...

Removing succulents from lawn

This stuff is wide spread in my parents place, which is 4-5 hours from where we live and a completely different climate all together. The lawn has lots of broad leaf weeds as well which I’ll be taking care of with 2,4-D / Dicamba. It seems to pull out extremely easy however there’s just too much of ...

Let’s see your fireworks lineup

As Canada Day is tomorrow, Independence Day July 4, I’m sure a lot of us have some plans to try not to lose a finger this weekend. Halloween is a big day for firework displays in my area. Much more so then Canada Day or New Years. Probably most of the doubles and a couple others will get saved for H...

We drive them in and the twine gives it strength at the top as well as holds everything together.

Re: How do you support tomatoes?

My wife uses 3 stakes and twine to hold them up near the end. Works great. The store bought cages are only good for the first bit.

tgreen Babameca Thanks to everyone for weighing in. There’s one area that is worse then the rest. I’m not planning on doing anything more about it unless it becomes a real problem.

Is this leaf spot?

I think this is leaf spot. This is my first spring with TTTF. Has been a wet and humid spring. I have put down Scott’s disease Ex (azoxy) only at the preventative rate as that’s all I had. 3 days ago I applied Bayer Advanced at curative rate. (Propiconazole) It seems to be helping, the diseased area...
