Re: SP's thread

Huh, thanks for the feedback, @SNOWBOB11. So, it sounds like there is a partial match, but not enough for an ID. I've been trying to think of what else it might be. One thing that comes to mind is hybrid bluegrass. I planted some a few years ago as an experiment, but I've only seen fescue until now...

Re: SP's thread

The suspect triv is lime green and feels rough and waxy. It is easy to pull up. You can see the ligule in the image. What throws me is that I’ve never seen it brown or go dormant. And I don’t see the band that is observable on the leaf (if that is even something specific to triv). This is an area of...

Re: SP's thread

And I’m planning my attack on what I suspect to be poa triv. Can anyone confirm my ID? I always struggle to get good pics, so I apologize for the shortcomings. https://i.postimg.cc/ryHtFph5/1405-E8-CC-181-D-4-CF9-8507-05-F80-D0-D14-F9.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/BQ1P8Gyk/4-F655-FDF-7-E52-4208-983-E-B45...

Re: SP's thread

Applied about .7 lbs N per k to TTTF only. For the bluegrass, I’m sticking with AMS, and I’ve decided to avoid adding iron at this point in the season. Milorganite has disappeared, so I am using ProCare Natural Fert from Lowe’s. This is my first time using. Looks like Milo. Smells like Milo. Inconsi...

Re: Invasive Bermudagrass

Yep. I'll admit my backyard isn't exactly a showcase lawn so acceptance is probably best. The previous owners apparently didn't do too much for it. I was hoping to level this area out and sow fresh seed, but I guess at this point it's more practical to just let the Bermuda do it's thing and fill in...

Re: Invasive Bermudagrass

Ouch, sorry. That looks like Bermuda. Best to wait for one more confirmation of that.
Your second plant looks like nutsedge, but I’m not sure. Check out Ken n Nancy’s post in this thread viewtopic.php?t=4876

Re: Invasive Bermudagrass

Step one is to confirm the ID to the best of your ability. I think it is a touch early for Bermuda to be out of dormancy, but I may well be wrong. If it is Bermuda, then, there are several options. Pylex is the best. Outside of Pylex, you should really consider acceptance. If you can’t do acceptance...

should i add some liquid fert to the tank
It isn't necessary, but you could, and it could increase efficacy. I typically use Ammonium Sulfate at 3 oz. or less per gallon.
If you wish, you can check out this post for additional perspective.

Re: What is your favorite seed company / What to buy?

IMO, of primary importance in selecting seeds is the analysis of weed seed/other crop/noxious weeds. I've walked away from plenty of nice mixes because they weren't 0.00%. Grassy weeds are a nightmare, so if you need to pay extra for clean seed, it is worth it.

Re: Looking aT getting some turf type tall fesce.

Ditto to the above.
In the vast majority of cases that I see, TTTF lawns consist of multiple cultivars. Same for the pre-packaged bags of seed.
TTTF is known to fall to disease (especially brown patch), so doing a monostand is calculated as too risky.

Re: HELP

knoxvillelawnguy , welcome to TLF! Using 2,4-d by itself is a tall order to get rid of clover. While you would likely have more success using a traditional three-way (as found in weed b gone), I think that your best strategy is to use triclopyr. You may be able to find it at your local big box unde...

Re: can i use 2,4 d and triclopyr on same day?

My experience matches what bernstem says above. Ditto for the recommendation. It can be done, but you need to be careful and accurate. I wouldn’t apply the mix with a hose-end sprayer.

Re: SP's thread

Pulled weeds from flowerbeds today. Trimmed plants and shrubs. Mowed, trimmed, edged. Pretty full day in the lawn. Gonna kick back for a little bit now. I probably will start the triv project before the end of the week. Backyard https://i.postimg.cc/NfrbtQ2F/984361-F5-254-B-4-C93-B3-BC-9340962197-C0...

Ok so what is a "clasping auricle" and what is that indicative of?k
It is usually used to ID quackgrass and annual ryegrass. The auricles kind of look like little claws. It isn’t a common feature.
