Re: Any idea what spreader settings to try on this SOP and TSP?

+1 on what Gilley11 said above. Personally on my EarthWay 2600a I’d probably have to be on the 12-13 setting to put down such low quantity. I’m assuming these are standard SGN prill sizes (?). If smaller SGN go a size lower. Consider going at a higher rate to get more consistent material flow out of...

Trying to find the label on this right now since it says CA only without having to drive over to my local socal branch https://www.siteone.com/en/082977ca-lesco-green-flo-liquid-fertilizer-ca-only-6-0-0-2-12-gal/p/466769 O Here’s the non-CA label.

Re: There’s NOT an app for that (irrigation design app)

Are you asking for software that will auto-design a system for you? Or are you looking for more of the CAD aspect. Either way options exist but as anyone who drafts/designs knows, CAD is just a tool - no different than paper/pencil but with a steeper learning curve. It’s the engineering knowledge be...

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

@Kamauxx - no sir, nutsedge will look very similar to that kyllinga/annual sedge that your neighbor seemingly has in their yard. They’re part of the same family weed, the sedges.

Re: TruCut Reel Mower Questions

I would think that backlapping is necessary even with a new reel & bedknife ... the small tolerances require that they be mated to each other. But if you’re 2 mm off on center I’d put a straight edge on it too. Could be the bedknife followed the contour of the frame a tad (?)

Re: Scotts fertilized my lawn by accident!

turfnsurf search this site for grub control, there’s lots of good info on it. Essentially you need to know the lifecycle of what you’re after in your particular area in order to time it correctly. Here’s a graphic that will help. Adjust for your area. https://i.postimg.cc/3R3DFkKD/10162354-594-A-4-...

Re: Life to an old AC unit?

These units are remarkably simple .. a compressor pushing Freon round and round ... but the easiest thing to do is make sure you have proper airflow for all the intermediary locations such as Evap & Condesir coils. A new capacitor can also add some grease to old joints by being gentle in the start/s...

Re: Shed build/design

Here’s some general design/layout elements & thoughts to consider: - determine if you need more storage/shelving space or more open areas. A more rectangular shape is efficient for wall space/storage .. a square shape gives you more center/open space. - doors require passageways, ie dead space. One ...

Re: Does my high pH prohibit me from planting?

I wouldn’t worry too much about the pH for plantings .. just be mindful of that when you dig your holes and follow the 2x ball size rule for the hole ... mix with good soil / compost afterwards. What is the 2X ball rule? Dig hole twice as wide as the ball root, since the roots mostly grow out sidew...

Re: Southern AG Iron Granules Question...

This 30% Iron is the Monohydrate, which is not as soluble and will not be absorbed by the plant as quickly. That’s probably why they sell it as a pH amendment product. For fast green up using Iron nothing beats the foliar sprays. It’s like shooting up the Iron into the turf grass.. no need to depend...

Not sure if you got the chance to dig into the site, but there’s a trove of info here. Don’t get any deeper than you want to, but this guide (assuming you’ll have cool season turf) is an excellent starting point to set your expectations.

Re: arborvitae that can grow in moist soil?

Get that water to drain away from the root ball, no magic way out of this. Most shrubs will react the same way in this situation. Tricks of the trade is to plant the root ball high (and backfill will topsoil all around) ... or dig a really deep hole and treat it like a French drain under that partic...

Did you get this material from a local nursery? I can’t imagine theyd sell this as Topdressing material. Not sure what “Sandy Loam” would clump up & break up like that... but wouldn’t be surprised if it was quarry material. Not much you can do now except let it dry and break it down as much as you c...

Re: When to apply first pgr to recently stressed grass?

Aside from the poultry pellets (seriously? Do tell), I’m a bit confused by your decision to cut low, go high, only to cut it back down again. Generally the concept is to cut low (lower than your final HOC) and let it thicken up as you mow .. and mow and mow. :). That way you only rip the bandaid off...

Re: Material to use to bring lawn level with new driveway

No gravel. That’s asking for big time trouble. If you need to bri g up the dirt to the new driveway level then use topsoil & reseed/sod. You may need to feather it down into the existing grade over a few feet, but that depends on your grade. Watch Connor Wards newer videos .. he had to do the same t...

Re: Scotts fertilized my lawn by accident!

The devil may be in the details here ... how much of each product was applied? The formulation tells us nothing as far as total nitrogen applied.
That insecticide was a nice app though. 👍🤷🏻‍♂️
