Re: Celsius = Awesome!

I think you will be fine as it is a solid and not a liquid so I think temperature has less of an effect on it. I think you are fine with indoor lights on it, if it was sensitive to light it would be in an opaque bottle. I have a bottle that is going on 9 years old right now and it still works just a...

Re: Powered Reel Mower

It doesn't look too severe to me either and any powered reel mower should be able to handle that slope even if you go diagonally.

What's the best available online and where can I get it cheapest online?
Fertilizer is not something you generally want to buy online due to the shipping costs involved. Worst case is just go to Home Depot or Lowe's and pick up something they have in stock.

Re: Bermuda Grass Fertilizer

I just put down my prodiamine and I am wondering what the best commercial grade fertilizer is for bermuda grass in Temple, Tx. Can either be spray or granular. There is no "Best" fertilizer for bermuda. It all depends on what's available where you live and what your particular soil/lawn needs. With...

Is this super juice similar to something like Feature 6-0-0?
I don't think it's even close as the SJ is going to be highly diluted as to where the Feature is highly concentrated and way cheaper too. The Feature isn't designed as a Nitrogen supplement and only as a micro nutrient supplement.

Re: How To With Doc...

So let me get this straight... a guy with 34,000 subscribers on YouTube goes to a large manufacturer of lawn care products (only works with professionals and golf courses) and tells them what to do. They then go back to their lab and work on it for two months and then put his name on the label? He ...

Re: Benefits of dethatching

Yes, I would rent one from HD, that's what I use to do before I bought the one I have now. Shouldn't take you more than an hour to do the whole lawn in 2 directions. I also like using a Landscaping rake to rake up all the debris.

Re: Benefits of dethatching

I usually dethatch/verticut in the Spring and I go in at least 2 directions. As for the verticutter, dethatcher and power rake (these terms are used interchangeably) you want to make sure you get one with either fixed blades or the flail blade, you DO NOT want the one with the spring tines. By verti...

Re: Fall Prodiamine didn’t work well

...or it was my first time using pre emergents so maybe I need a full year control before I see great results. This winter was better than 2017 when I did not put any pre emergents down though. There is some truth in this. More weeds last year means more weed seeds dropped that can germinate this y...

Welcome back stranger :D Congrats on the new addition to the family :thumbup: I wouldn't worry about it too much as you should be starting your scalping here in less than 2 months and that alone should take care of them and see what remains as the lawn starts waking up.

Re: Let’s talk first cut of spring

I usually start scalping in mid February or the first week of March. I don't see it as much of a risk since it would take a freakishly extended cold snap to do any real harm, it is bermuda after all :D. I think it also depends on what area of the country you are living in, the further South you are ...

Re: Scalping Before Green Up...

I don't see anything wrong with scalping in February if that's all you have. The only concern would be if you had a very hard freeze as it might damage the lawn but that would take some serious freezing temps that froze the ground. I usually start my scalping in mid February to the first week of Mar...

Kitchen Scale I also have a small "gram" scale that I use for VERY small amounts of product like Cel...

Re: Is now a bad time to do a soil test

I have always done my soil tests in the Winter.

I am always applying something to lawn Spring through Fall so I...
