Re: do or do not start the Nitrogen Bliz

Maintain ET, or at least make sure it doesn't show signs of water stress (wilting).

Re: do or do not start the Nitrogen Bliz

The main problem is that we are in a drought. At least in Indy, we barely had total 0.6in of rain in the past 6 weeks. Looking at the forecast, we won't see more rain for at least another week. While you can irrigate to water it in, you do need to keep the lawn irrigated after the nitrogen. I have i...

That's normal non fast calcitic lime. You likely can do 50lb/ksqft of it at once.

Without irrigation, I would give up.

Re: Espoma organic starter fert

It is in the label, 1.9% slow release out of a total of 3%. Most organics are slow as temps drop. It won't hurt to use this, but you should see a better response with a fast nitrogen.

Re: Too late to renovate lawn in lower NY?

You also have to be careful with seed coming from Oregon and Washington (and Canada) with "other crop," as you could theoretically get Cannabis Sativa seeds (marijuana plant), and that would be illegal in most US states. Can you point to an article or some source to this? The size of a marijuana se...

Re: Too much seed during overseed?

1 acre = 43.5 ksqft

1000/43.5 = 23lb/ksqft

I don't think you can over-do it; for golf courses and athletic fields, 100 pounds per 1000 sq ft is recommended for overseeds.
Can you point to an article with that recommendation?

Re: Behind the Greens: Winged Foot Golf Club

It is not a mower. It is a greens roller. It is flat rolls that are used to get the greens more flat and compacted. The ball will roll better (faster).

Re: synergy's 2020 Mazama KBG Mono Reno

Why is it that everyone thinks that waiting until Monday is acceptable? ;-)

I think the 10+ works as a foliar. I'm always worried of trying new things in a reno. Maybe do a section instead of the whole yard only to see what happens. For the back, sand topdressing next year might help.

Re: Too late to renovate lawn in lower NY?

That's not TTTF. That's creeping red fescue. It does ok in the shade, but turns brown in the sun/summer. It won't matter how much you water it.

Run the sprinklers at 5am and the warmer water should help too.

That bag is not fast. It is coated to slow it down plus it has methylenurea.
