Re: Renovation via stolonizing TIFTUF

14 days after planting Looking good! I'm going to attempt this on a few thousand square feet this weekend. My plan is to verticut my Tiftuf sod that has been established for two months. Broadcast the stolons, topdress with sandy loam and water heavy. What irrigation schedule do you recommend? A few...

Re: PGR + High N for the Final Push?

It seems a lot but it’s common practice for sports field managers when they spray out the rye in early summer and want the Bermuda to fill in quickly. How many weeks would you keep that rate? Through mid august? There is only so much N a plant can use so after that its wasted. Are you trying to ble...

Re: PGR + High N for the Final Push?

I’d skip the PGR and hit 1# per M of fast release weekly. I can do that but damn that's a lot of nitrogen! cpVA I've been doing 0.25lb N weekly with foliar applications and occasional granular apps. My problem with slow and steady is that these heavy washouts we get are eroding my soil without the ...

PGR + High N for the Final Push?

Well I'm worried that I'm running out of growing season to get my reno project filled in. What will happen if I apply about 3 lbs nitrogen (1 part fast, 2 parts slow) and PGR? Will the energy transfer to lateral growth or will it just produce extreme top growth? I have Tiftuf sod squares and plugs o...

Re: Floating Deck Carving Lines on Side Slopes

Well I got fed up and did some scalping and leveling in hopes of some meaningful improvement. If nothing else I'm getting it closer to reel mow someday.

Re: Floating Deck Carving Lines on Side Slopes

Same issue here. Here is my post on it from earlier this spring. The best way I fix it is really making sure the deck is level and trying to lean a little to the high side when going through the worst spots. I feel your frustration. https://thelawnforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=10346 How much improv...

Re: Weed ID Thread - What is it and how do I kill it?

Soooo ...... never could tell what weed invading my turf when mowed low. So I pulled plugs and fertilizing it........ yes, I’m growing weed. Anyone wanna shed some light and ID this weed for me? It’s growing in 419. Seems very resilient to celcius, certainty, MSMA and revolver. https://i.postimg.cc...

Re: Weed ID Thread - What is it and how do I kill it?

What do I have here? Grows in a clumps, not stolonous. Does fine in shade. No seed heads really. MSMA doesn’t touch it. https://i.postimg.cc/g2tHhjzq/1-E0-F813-D-A373-4-FC6-9-A9-C-644-E46-DCA4-D9.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/m28YxkHf/62969-F67-721-D-427-D-9-F79-F87-CE85-B2-A3-E.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/...

Re: For noobs considering PGR

Just wanted to chime in. I am a first time PGR user and it is amazing how much it has worked. Turf is already getting thicker. Just applied my second app tonight at 25 oz / acre along with the FAS concoction mentioned in another thread. If you are on the fence about pgr...go get some. You’ll be gla...

Re: adgattoni's Lawn Journal

Started another project tonight. I am going to reset my HOC this weekend, so I wanted to make use of the material vs. just throwing it in the trash. I went over the back yard (approx. 5k sq ft) in one direction with the power rake, and made it half way across again going in a perpendicular directio...

@TN Hawkeye beautiful piece of property! Thank you. It’s so easy sometimes to look at other people’s lawns on here and get down about your own.

Re: Myricia's Lawn Renovation (Monaco Bermuda)

Looking good for 3 weeks. :) What’s your irrigation protocol on that much sq footage. My entire yard is setup with Rainbird 5000 rotors with more nozzles so it keeps each zone extremely consistent and around the same timing. The first 2-3 weeks I watered about 3-4 min ever hour between 11-4 except ...
