Re: Test area with Latitude 36 after one month

I've noticed in pictures that latitude has a very smooth look to it. Almost like it has a micro fine blade. How would you compare it to your common? Looking forward to seeing the results of your test area.

Wow you would think having to take that much off there would be less green. That still looks pretty decent.

Dave, what was the amount of plugs you ordered from Hancock? You mentioned 2 flats. Just curious on what a flat contains. Thanks.
Yeah sorry I made it kinda confusing. A single order of plugs had 36 3" plugs in 2 trays. I planted 2 orders, 72 plugs in total for this area.

Plugs are still trucking along. We've had rain everyday last couple weeks. It's been hard to keep up.

Re: St Aug loopers/runners? (pics)

Sure you can. Make a diagonal hole in the ground with a screwdriver and stuff the cut side in there, then pack it down and keep them watered. They will grow.

Re: Can you strip Bermuda grass?

Anybody have a seeded variety of Bermuda that they successfully stripe? I'd be interested to see it. Plain old wild common Bermuda @ .5" This is 2 days after cut https://i.postimg.cc/YqCLTNRj/IMG-20200519-155229993.jpg These were taken right after cut https://i.postimg.cc/SsGjvjzW/IMG-20200522-1330...

Re: Scott’s Disease Ex (Azoxystrobin) Amazon Deal of the Day -$11.00

Never used fungicide before (taking care of my lawn for only 2 years), do you all apply fungicide regardless of any fungus symptoms? Or only apply when necessary? If the former, what's the good timing of applying fungicide? I will also try to search for related info in the forum. I would like to ec...

Re: Fladave 2020

Yeah my neighbor has flortam. It hasn't really been much of an issue to keep it out. Every couple weeks I go along with a machete and pull the runners up off my lawn. It's easier for me to pull them up if I let them get a little longer.

From today's cut. It's been raining off and on, got another 45 gal of clippings in 3 days. Also backlapped the Jake as I got blonde tips after my last cut. Cutting nice and clean now.

Re: How experienced are you at lawn type identification?

Some of them have a skinny spiral type leaf growth (See sample 3) while others are more flat and broad (See sample 5). Samples 7 and 12 really throw me off becaus...
