Re: Work in Progress - AZ PRG

robbybobby sorry I inadvertently posted in the wrong thread. This is the current lawn thread for the PRG. My lawn is surrounded by pea gravel that tends to make its way into the grass every time I drive my gator into it. The reel mower does a great job at finding them. My Turf model had “turf” tire...

Re: Work in Progress - AZ PRG

3 weeks old today. Was pretty wet when when I mowed and the reel kept getting jammed up. Will give it another go at end of day when it’s nice and dry this week. Only apps have been a light dose of 21-0-0 after my initial ital starter fert. https://i.postimg.cc/J7J5Y491/F5-DA56-F1-25-B2-481-C-94-B6-9...

Irritrol Commercial Controllers

Anyone have experience with these controllers? Any major difference Between the MC-12E and the MC24E besides the obvious? Same same? Or different.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Work in Progress - AZ PRG

Back in it for winter 2020. 12 days since seed. Few bare areas but reseeded and dressed with the clippings. Excited to get the 2500E on this lawn in a month. https://i.postimg.cc/VNnn8JxJ/76089701-FB5-B-4096-B2-C5-A56-CA5-B64-DC2.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/RVpcQ51Z/94-A5448-E-B3-B8-4208-A54-A-D572757-...

Re: AZ TifGrand 2020 Journal

Thanks Marc. The lawn is 1/2 way full after 7 days. I did another pass with the drop seeder since I only applied 60% of all my seed the first week. Come Sunday it should be closer to where I would like it. Clearly my center head needed adjustment. My phone does not do the greatest job at capturing t...

Re: Toro Timemaster surging when idling

First pic - those 2 little circles to the right have A very Small orifice. Had good luck then I cleared the tarnish out of there.

Re: Toro Timemaster surging when idling

There is the smallest of holes on the left or right side of the venturi of the carb on the front side. I missed this hole the first 2 go arounds of my timemaster doing the same. Take the intake manifold off and give it a go. You will need the smallest of wire to clear the Orifice. When this is clogg...

Re: AZ TifGrand 2020 Journal

Cant wait to see the results! We had a brutal summer this year. I put rye seed down on the 9th. First timer so I hope it looks good. I went at the bag rate of 10lbs per 1000. I feel like that might not be enough but I was afraid of the spring transition as my lawn is alittle over 2 years old. I did...

Re: AZ TifGrand 2020 Journal

I water every hour on the hour from 9-5 for 4 minutes. I have rotaries on 1” Pipe so my watering is a little different than most in our area. Seeds split yesterday and Started seeing shoots this evening so should be a sea of green by Monday. My process has always been drop 3/4 of my seed the first g...

That’s a wrap for this year. Put the bermuda to sleep and laid down PRG. Temps are still 100 During the day so it should not take long for these guys to pop.

Re: MQ's Lawn Journal

Great work MQ. That’s a lot of elbow grease and can applaud you for that! Man I wish I lived in a state with rain and humidity. My Tifgrand performed worse the lower I went. 140 days of 100F and above with 0.2” of rain if I remember correctly. I’m sure you will end up loving it and am excited to see...

Re: AZ TifGrand 2020 Journal

Still 105 out but started to thin the yard out. Verticut 2 directions and bagged a few hundred gallons. I’ll start scalping for 2 weeks and spray pgr right before overseeding. Just wanted to get a jump because it is too much to complete in 1 weekend. Water has been scaled back to every 3 days and th...

Re: AZ TifGrand 2020 Journal

It was west coast gravel, but save your money cause it was nothing more than mortar sand. I would not recommend it. I had the same issues as you. Going forward I am going to get the run of the mill and work that that. The grass is happy either way. The mower reels not so much but they tend to fling ...

Re: AZ TifGrand 2020 Journal

First sod rep said no way. 2nd said it was because the lawn still had rye. Farm used a variety called “Evening Shade” and it’s the worst. Stringy and light green. The lawn is filling in and closer in color, but tiffgrand is weird. The blade size is larger when the plant is spreading. Once dense it s...
