Re: Dubya's Lawn Journal (Zoysia, St. Augustine)

Thanks @thundergunexpress! I've got my fingers crossed for when I turn on the sprinkler system Sunday to water in the pre-em.

Re: Dubya's Lawn Journal (Zoysia, St. Augustine)

Wanted to share pictures of the 15-22 inches of snow we received last week. Amazingly, GreenCast is already telling me to get ready to put down pre-emergent! Gotta love Texas weather! https://i.postimg.cc/R0yYp4yC/IMG-9759.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/FzQBmGh2/IMG-9760.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/FRSB2wXy/...

Mulch on dormant Zoysia

NOT my yard, a neighbor's, but I've already been asked about it, since I'm the street's 'expert'. In other words, I listen to you all! So this looks like she had a very low grade of top soil, closer to mulch, spread all over her dormant zoysia. This can't be a good idea, right? Especially being dorm...

Re: Pop up emitter that's particularly tall or directed?

I had one like this and it was an easy fix. My head was coming off the main line by an extender. I was able to uncover it and then raise it, by putting soil under it. If it's coming directly off the main line it might take adding an extender.

Re: Thank you to the Board. Extreme Progress / Minor Problems

Please post a picture if you do end up adding weight to your mower. I'd be very interested to see how you did it and hear how it works. I think I could benefit from the same.

Re: Dubya's Lawn Journal (Zoysia, St. Augustine)

Last application of prodiamine for the fall. As the crabgrass dies back, I’m encouraged by how much of my zoysia is underneath it. Already raring to go for spring scalping and leveling! https://i.postimg.cc/y8wn8Bd0/5-B12-BE02-91-B3-41-A2-BD1-A-D12019-A88895.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/rwdQTz88/94-D38-...

Looks more like insect damage to me. Sod webworms and/or chinch bugs are my guess. Have you noticed moths flying around while mowing? Try a coffee can test for chinch bugs and soapy water for the webworms.

That's not the result of low micros etc.

Re: Yellowing showing up all over backyard st. augustine

Hey @dubyadubya87 , I actually sent some soil sample last week. Waiting for the results now. What would you recommend i keep an eye on that would cause this harsh yellowing? I'm curious to see your soil sample results when they come in. I would look for high soil pH and/or low iron. I have the exac...

Re: UltimateLawn's DFW St. Augustine Journal

I have the same in mine right now. Curious to hear if anyone knows for sure what it is. I have a theory on the shriveled St.Aug blades. I have been fighting a fungal outbreak and this may be leaves and/or stolons attacked by the fungus and it was a full blade kill. I think they were there all seaso...
