Re: SP's thread

Also, I did document this regrowth. The midnight was damaged in late May. I’m not sure what died vs recovered, but the area is substantially better. The damage occurred from a plastic toy chest that sat on the grass for at least several days in hot temps. This picture was taken May 28 https://i.post...

Re: SP's thread

Looks good @social port. Am I crazy to think the bermuda areas you killed are filling in already? No, not crazy at all. I don’t have any Bermuda in the bluegrass, but I have been using non-selective herbicides for dealing with goosegrass and dallisgrass in the bluegrass areas. The three way mix has...

Re: SP's thread

@social port Just move up north. KBG likes it here. Well, I’ve thought about moving to Alaska so I don’t have to deal with bermuda, so moving north to grow bluegrass isn’t out of bounds for my thinking. I like parts of Pennsylvania. I like northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. But for the time ...

Kbg is looking good. Can't wait to see it in the fall.
I know. I am very eager to look for color change. As fall approaches, the more it will keep me up at night. Eager is probably an understatement. :geek: :bandit:

Re: What is this? Located in Oregon

That looks like spotted spurge to me. Ortho Weed b gone CCO (chickweed, clover, oxalis) would be my go-to (triclopyr). Plan to add a NIS. It may require more than one app.

Re: Budstl lawn

Hit a milestone in my 07 mazda 6 end of July. Oh Sweet! I knew I recognized that dashboard. I drove an 05 Mazda 6 for about 10 years. I loved that car. I wanted a little more torque, but the M shifter was fun. The best thing was the handling. That car was built for curves. So...are you calling summ...

Re: Aerate & Overseed vs. Weed & Bermuda Fighting?

I would not aerate anywhere near sites with bermuda. No doubt on that one. Why is that... I am doing an aeration this weekend and I have some Zoysia and aren't the two kinda related? For bermuda, you have to be very wary of spreading it. Once it is growing in a new place, it is difficult to remove....

That grass came in so well and so quickly.
I hope all goes well with the possible fungus.

Re: Powhatan's 2019 Lawn Journal

It looks like that could be a hybrid sticking up between the two trees, or perhaps bluegrass.

I can't believe how little growth has slowed this summer. It sounds like the summer has been similar for you.

Re: SP's thread

Damn it does look good! It does look better in the pictures than in person ... but there is nothing to really dislike here considering the time of year. There are a few areas that have a kind of purple hue to them, and I believe that is heat stress. I've been debating a KBG transition. The bluegras...

Re: SP's thread

Do you have damage in the bluegrass as well? I know I do. I think disease pressure is less than a few weeks ago. I never did do anything about it except for bag the clippings. I was concerned that the clippings were too heavy and possibly encouraging disease. Rate of growth has possibly been the bi...

Re: SP's thread

Definitely give it a shot. I also saw the post and almost bit on buying some NH, but I still have liquid kelp and have been trying foliar apps this year, so I held off. Please update with your results. I might have to buy some for next summer. Will do. The stuff is pricey, though. I glanced at the ...

Re: SP's thread

On days I've been home during the day, I've been syringing and spraying kelp (and other goodies), which has helped reduce drought conditions, compared to previous years. I think syringing alone, has helped. Hang in there! :thumbup: I just bought 10 lbs of that Neptune's Harvest kelp meal that tneic...

Re: Photo of Tall Fescue Rhizomes

The rhizomes here are under an inch long. Wow, those are really good pictures, then. :thumbup: It's got to be at least 5 years. I think that was the last time I seeded in that area. It could be 6 years...that was the original planting. I was wondering if fescue might become more 'rhizomatic' as it ...

We got a little rain in Murfreesboro I think an inch but I can’t remember the last time I dumped my rain gauge. I thought May was bad but hopefully the worst is behind us. The NE should be down in the 70's on Sunday. Hopefully, you will get some relief, too. I hope so fellas. This weather is beatin...

And this was definitely either Bullseye or Firecracker LS, but I'm not sure which one.
Ha! That was my question. Was Bullseye ever marketed as a 'spreader'?
Do you know how old this fescue is?

Has anyone seeded Everest Kentucky bluegrass in TN with good success? I’m not sure if there are any members that have used everest in TN, but social port has KBG and he is in TN. I’d think if you can grow one cultivar of KBG in TN you would be able to grow another. Nehf11 , I am not familiar with E...

I’m very interested in this as that looks identical to a large section of my lawn that’s I assumed was ...
