Re: 2019 | Cool Season Lawn Photos

@Suburban Jungle Life A rare look at your lawn, looks great! Here's my TTTF/PRG reno at 1" HOC. Last actual mow for me, still will mulch leaves. https://i.postimg.cc/G2G09fn9/IMG-6790.jpg Thanks! I guess I don't share often... Your lawn looks very nice. You also have an unusual combo. Most people m...

Re: Looking for Ideas

The last thing I would want is ivy on the wall. It leaves a mess if you remove it and it brings bugs into the home. I also wouldn't plant anything that close to the house. Again, bugs move from plants to the home. I would leave the rock and put a planter box which is long and skinny across that wall...

Re: Reel Mow TTTF

I would cut it to 0.5" and then maintain at 1" if you want. It'll be all brown but will come back. Fescue is kinda brown near the base so I would cut that off so you have more leaf area. You'll probably need to overseed since I'm not sure how wide each plant will be if it is kept that short. It'll ...

Re: Landscape Drawings and Help With Lawn Selection

Bermuda spreads quickly so its good if you are on the grass a lot and need that repair. If you are only on it occasionally, zoysia is good. It does spread but slowly. You'll need to keep it in check but much more so for bermuda. I would probably not have skinny strips of grass next to the driveway a...

Re: Allelopathy and Maple Trees

I have thick TTTF under my maples. Have you done a soil test only for the struggling spots? Maybe there is a massive deficiency of some sort. Grubs? If you are sure it isn't water, I would start with a soil test and also check for grubs.

Re: Better leaf mulching with damp leaves

I use mine on dry leaves and put it on discharge. It is a honda so it discharges to the rear and seems to also be slightly to the left. With it on discharge, it vacuums very well and no leaves escape anywhere. Since I use it on discharge, it doesn't chop them super fine in one go as there is still s...

I didn't know what couch grass (Elymus repens) was so I looked it up. Here, we call it quackgrass and it's considered an invasive species.

If there is a ton of walking and wheelbarrows, you could put out sheets of plywood to limit damage.

Re: pic request - density of grass seed put down

I would just go in the back yard and measure with a tape. You can cut it down to 1/4 the size so it's 250sqft and weigh your seed depending on the type. Use a spreader and set to the lowest setting and go over a few times until it's all gone. This way, you know what it looks like in person. KBG seed...

Re: did soil pH meters ever work?

I wouldn't trust those tools. I'd rather use a ph kit with liquid and a dropper with some soil and de-ionized water or whatever you're supposed to use.

Re: Full lawn maintenance calendar (Gantt chart) shared for you to use

I tried this style of chart but it got too wide. I apply products for 9 months and I divvy them up by sections of the yard. I may only use a product on the front and not on the back, far back, side, etc. What if you only get fungus on the front and use a curative. Then that date doesn't coincide wit...

Re: Mixing different foliar products compatability

I think most herbicides, fungicides, and N are compatible. It gets questionable when it comes to a humic/fulvic/kelp mix and iron. For me, they clump and form jelly like globs. I can still spray it but I wonder if efficacy has been affected. Can always do a jar test. I try to spray iron by itself or...

Chlorothalonil is pretty good for your Peach, Pistachio, Plum and Prune trees. It is a contact fungicide. I would suggest applying in a mix with azoxy/ppz rather than by itself in a rotation.

Stick with multi-site action!

Re: Selectively remove TF and RG from KBG

Has anyone tried Penoxsulam (Sapphire) in KBG? It's labelled at low rates on fescue and rye but higher rates on bermuda. It doesn't specify KBG or FF.

Re: Trying to kill wild onions in my bermuda

Most herbicides are labelled to kill onion and garlic. The reason most don't do a good job is the liquid slides off the leaf tissue. You spray it and it winds up on the ground instead of staying on the green part. I would suggest using some adjuvants such as NIS and AMS, especially if you choose wea...
