Re: The Story of Bermudagrass - Dr Glenn Burton

Good read. I never heard of the gamma ray experiments to get new strains.

@anthonybilotta IIRC it will tell you to reapply before it hits the max GDDs.

Re: Spots in my Lawn *PANICKING*

You might not have over applied. With 2,4-D if it gets over 85° after spraying it can damage Bermuda.

I’d say herbicide over dose, especially in the 3rd pic where it’s a perfect rectangle

Re: Verticutting fairways today

It’s always fun to see what you’re up to. Does the vac bail up the material? It looks similar to what the farmers use to bail hay.

Re: 2019 | What did you do with your lawn today?

@anthonybilotta you’ll be fine. You can mow after 4 hours, so rain 5 hours after spraying shouldn’t be an issue.

Re: Effects of too much PGR

I put down .75oz/1000 the first time I sprayed after renovating. Turns out it likes ~.2oz/1000. First pic is a day after spraying. Second is a week or 2 later. Once it came out of regulation it was fine. The brown areas to the left were caused by Off bug spray. https://i.postimg.cc/MKD9v7kD/8-F7-B45...

2 times a week should be no problem if you are practicing deep and infrequent watering.

Re: cutting bermuda

Hire a lawn service to come and cut halfway through your 10 days on. Even with PGR 10 days is a long time between cuts.

Re: Why are lawn levelling rakes so damned expensive?

Here is my homemade level rake. It’s 36”x13”. I bought a 10’ piece of 1” sq tubing and 8’ piece of 3/4” sq tubing. The two middle pieces are the 3/4” tubing at a 45 degree angle. Total metal cost was $56.00. I did use some scrap I had for the handle piece. https://i.postimg.cc/Vv8DpBNs/958-CC513-23...

Re: What do you use to verticut

@J_nick Would you say that verticutting helps with uneveness at all? If cross-hatched would it have any smoothing effect once it settles in after rainfall? Over time yes. My lawn is fairly smooth though. I do have one spot the verticutter use to catch traction and tear up really bad. It keeps getti...

Re: Why are lawn levelling rakes so damned expensive?

Got a friend that owns a welder? Go pick up the metal from a supply shop for ~$50 and a 12 pack of beer. 30 minutes later you have one for half the price.
