Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

I set several more stepping stones in, but I'm starting to hit tree roots, so the process is slower.

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

Yesterday,

I spot sprayed clover with CCO.

Laid out 16 stepping stones and dug in 6 to recess them (and somewhat level). Headed out now to continue before work.

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

Rain Gauge app on my phone and my home weather station rain gauge are in great disagreement in how much rain we received today. Rain Gauge app = 1.64 Weather station = 0.46 From my judgment, the home weather station is correct, as it typically is very close to bonafide records. I'll be keeping an ey...

Re: SP's thread

I'm not an expert on disease ID, but know that brown patch is the primary disease which affects TTTF in hot weather. I think GLS can attack TTTF, too (maybe $ spot too). Those are great photos; cutaways and close ups. The cutaway shows a large area which gets me thinking that it's brown patch, but t...

Re: Triclopyr per Acre

The label should have all the info that you need. That is a very concentrated product, so I would reread the label as many times as necessary and post a question on this thread, if you want to double check the math. You can always post a photo of the label for reference.

Re: New Seed...No Results?

It's a little late to reseed for the spring, so I wouldn't waste any additional seed now. However, if you still have seed down that hasn't germinated yet, I would spread peat moss over those areas and continue watering. Besides being a great covering to aid in germination and maintaining moisture, i...

Re: New lawn rough shape help

Would you please list what fertilizer you have dropped so far? It's important to have that info to provide proper guidance. Assuming that you have not dropped a lot of fertilizer... IMHO, I think you still need some fertilizer before the real summer heat hits. You should have a 3-4 week window to dr...

Maybe a very light shot of foliar N, on a cooler day. Weather channel showed a cold front coming through TN and north GA today. Strike while the iron is hot and the weather is cool! Sorry for the bad pun. ;)

Re: SP's thread

Diseased areas seem to be minimal. I think you're doing all right, considering the weather conditions. Do you plan on using fungicides or are you riding/growing it out? Hey Chris, I have never used fungicides, either as a treatment or a preventative, so I am going to stick to that plan. The damage ...

So I got this off Craigslist today.

Nice score! It looks like the stainless version of the Accu Pro 2000. That's $600+ new. I'm sure you did much better than that. It should last a lifetime. Good luck!

Re: KCBen's KBG Lawn Journal

Did you need to lower the pH as that's been my struggle along with shallow topsoil composed of clay mixed with lots of limestone mixed in? Not ideal soil. I've been feeding it frequently and spraying liquid Humic. Still not convinced on the Humic, but whatever. Also, I've been trying to lower the p...

Yes and yes. No character in particular...just paying homage to half of my roots, being honest about my miscues, adding a little humor for something stupid that I did, because I know better.

Re: SNOWBOB11’s Lawn Journal 2019

Wow! That's a transformation. Spoonfeeding helped me too. It became a kind of addiction this past spring, to calculate a light rain and doing a small spoonfeed urea drop right before a cold spring rain. Nice work! Color and density look great! :clapping:

Re: Chris LI's Lawn Journal

Aww naw, you put me in a predicament. I'll fess up...I broke a dang winder with a weed whacker.

I'm usually careful and make sure the rotation of the head throws debris away from that area, but I was rushing the other day. Not one of my best moments. :roll:

Friday 6/7 Trim, mow (@2"), blow. I was in a rush and had a negative interaction with a silica based vertical panel. :censored: I wasn't in the mood to put the striping kit on, after that episode. This was not the day to enjoy the mow. However, I did have time to drop some BioPlex. Noted today at 2"...

I have 2 huge maples in my front yard and have been mowing, they will be gone soon. But seriously that tree would be cut down if it was me. Only going to shade out the yard and the roots are a pain in the but shallow and everywhere. I mow high to hide them but major work to keep the lawn nice. Aval...

Re: Little Maple Trees All over Lawn

I would just continue to mow them. Once the summer heat kicks in, they should be toast.

Re: Lawnmower lines

If the grass along the wheel tracks is taller because it never got cut fully it might be greener. Generally taller grass has a darker green look to it. +1^ Also, if you made any ruts while mowing during wet periods, those areas will tend to collect water during future rain events (thus, staying gre...
