Re: Good time to plug?

100sqft I would just sod it. Those plugs probably won't make much progress over winter.

Re: Bermuda to dominate common Bermuda ?

I'm not very sure about the climate there but I'd think in Delaware you would struggle to grow Bermuda. I thought that was cool season territory?

Re: Need advice from lawn renovation gurus. (centipede)

Try to reach out to your county extension and get someone out there. You'd be surprised what they can do for you. You have the signs of nematodes as greendoc said, huge issue in my area of Florida. Hard to say for sure without soil/nematode tests. Msm turf is a good pre and post for spurge if I reme...

Re: Mole Traps

pyperdoon i hope you are as successful as I have been. At this point I've trapped well over 50 of them with these traps and there seems to be no end in sight. Still working very well though, I usually set them in the evening and by morning the traps are sprung. They seem to be more active at night ...

Re: What weed is taking over my st. Aug?

So, if Celsius and dismiss haven’t worked, what’s my other option? It’s been close to 2 weeks since spraying with no hint that the weed is dying.

Re: Ramping up Bermuda lawn plan

On the pgr, either I'm reading it wrong or there's a typo but you have 11 oz per k. For t-nex you want to start low especially with celebration Bermuda. .15-.25oz per k is where I would start. Some members have said thier celebration does not handle rates higher than that.

Re: 46% N (urea) - spread or dissolve and spray?

With urea I find it's much easier to distribute it evenly if you dissolve and spray. Use hot water and melt it down in a 5 gal bucket with a paint mixer on a drill and use a filter to strain when pouring it in the sprayer as sometimes it all doesn't dissolve. I would also be sure it gets watered in.

Re: Celsius/Certainty not working?

It usually takes about 2 weeks to see results with celsius. I have no experience with certainty. Overnight is plenty time for it to absorb so you're good there. Just be patient.

Re: Please tell me what type of lawn this is

Looks like you've got Bermuda grass to me. I see some crabrass, sedges, and some other weeds in there. If you haven't yet, check out the Bermuda Bible.

The Bermuda triangle can easily help you with the weeds. Welcome to TLF!

Re: "Resetting" Bermuda

andymac7 you'll be fine. Here's some pics from my reset last Friday. I took pics every other day to document. I maintain the back with a rotary so not sure of heights. I did the reset at the lowest setting. Friday https://i.postimg.cc/bYWLRjGQ/IMG-20190802-150613402-HDR.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/50G...

Seeing that I’m about a week away from another PGR app, is it best to apply PGR then scalp or wait for the new growth then apply the PGR?
Either, depends on the pgr. If t-nex you can apply before scalp or utilize the rebound and apply after regrowth since it's foliar.

Re: "Resetting" Bermuda

My thought is there are too many variables to accurately answer these questions for a one size fits all guide. Spring scalp height, soil profile, nitrogen inputs, mowing frequency, etc... The Bermuda Bible explains it well. I think the most important factor is mowing frequency. If you start scalping...

Re: Be honest, will this fill in this season? (Warning, weed farm photos)

It is possible to have it filled in this year. One thing you have on your side being this far south is that we don't actually go dormant. But growth comes to a halt once it starts cooling off. I think that was around late october last year. I'd guess that without any more major setbacks you should b...

Re: Need help identifying a weed

Purple has a wider blade and darker color than yellow. The base actually is not a factor, yellow or purple is used to describe the seedhead actually.

Re: Who done it?

The wasps in my yard have been digging tunnels straight down with a volcano type mound around. (Maybe a different kind of wasp/hornet?) But the tunnel holes are only about nickel to quarter in size. I wouldn't have thought it was them making the mounds had I not caught one in the process. Freakishly...
