Re: Issues with Reel mower lawn

How low did you scalp? I am thinking that you probably could use a good dethatching as you still have alot of dead thatch in your turf. I don't believe it is a mower problem and hefegrass is correct in that your tires are laying down the green turf blades causing the streaks. On the H20 I scalped o...

Re: What do you use to verticut

I use a Graden with these DynaBlades. I verticut once very severely in the spring before green up. Then, another verticut in summer not nearly as severe per the direction of one of our members. https://i.postimg.cc/y6rpx4k3/Replacement-Graden-Blades.jpg I would expect that those blades do one heck ...

Re: Help finding an inexpensive source of soluble iron sulfate

I wasn't aware of them. A 30 pound bag for $38 shipped is certainly the best price I've seen. Thanks. Kelp4Less runs specials every week as well. I started using their Extreme Blend, Yucca, Azomite, and Molasses this year as a foliar supplement for my bermuda grass. If you order try using coupon co...

Re: Grass growing in tufts , won't green up fully. What is going on?

I have an Eliet Scarifier/Dethatcher that I use at least once a year on my Tifway 419. A good dethatching does wonders for the turf. If your lawn size is 1500 square feet I don't think you need something that big. Take a look at this review. Hope you find it helpful. https://youtu.be/erC9sDJHy1o Yo...

Re: Help finding an inexpensive source of soluble iron sulfate

Not sure of how much you use or if you have an interest in applying a foliar application. Have you tried Kelp4Less?

Earthworms are good. Grub worms are not.

I would go 5 minutes and check the results. You can work your way up to 10 minutes. I placed tarps out last night over new sanded sod. I am glad I did as we received 3.5 inches of rain.
Thanks for the advice gpbrown60 its much appreciated...

Re: Sand and Watering

Run the sprinklers and slowly work it in. If you wait on mother nature she may provide you with a monsoon and the sand will run everywhere.

Re: Bermuda mowing height?

In addition to a level yard I would think you need to dethatch on a regular basis. I can't imagine a rotary mower cutting effectively with a lot of thatch.

Re: Confusing advice for my soil tests. Slow or Quick Release?

Either fertilizer is fine. A 10-10-10 is around $12 and the 18-24-12 is $42. It depends on what you want to spend. I live in N. Atlanta and fertilized a few weeks ago. If you haven't already, scalp the lawn down, rake up and throw er down! In May, I would core aerate. I use a Lesco synthetic for th...
