@ZachUA I didn’t have to do anything, just have to get a feel for proper walking speed.

@TN Hawkeye yes, 20v. These are the tips I bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00CMU7H ... UTF8&psc=1 I didn’t have to change anything, they fit the same as the Chapin tips

Great. Thank you.
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

Trying to thicken up my neglected bermuda lawn. I think some PGR is needed, but with only about 1k sq ft of grass, is there anywhere that sells a reputable PGR at less than one gallon? It would take me years before I could use that much. I saw somewhere used to sell it in quarts, but it appears it's no longer available.

i think because it’s mostly commercially used they come in large quantities. But in our sell/trade section you can ask if any locals have any to sell. Lots of guys sharing costs and splitting up the quantities.

My kids play in our grass frequently. One is young enough that he's in the stage where he's putting his hands in his mouth all the time. Are pgr's safe to spray on our lawn if you have kids in this age range?

How long does it take for pgr to become rainfast?

You can mow after 4 hrs. I would use that as a baseline.

Just got some T-Nex from @OnTheOxbow (thanks!), but I am trying to thicken up my poorly treated yard. I have done some plugging and really want it to fill in. Would PGR help this? I am feeding it plenty of N, and I don't mind cutting every other day or so, just wondering if I should apply now, or wait until it fills in?

Find some members in your area and split a gallon. I'm somewhat new to the forum but I think there is a discussion or board on this forum that you can go to find others in your area.

Does PGR "go bad"? I don't mind buying a gallon, but I hate the thought of wasting most of it.

Okay, I think I found my answer earlier in this thread on page #14. Sorry...

Mightyquinn: "I think I am the one that started that whole rumor about the loss of efficacy a few years ago...

...I called the company that makes it about another product of theirs and they told me that NONE of their products have a shelf life as long as they are kept between 32F-105F. So I think the whole loss of efficacy is a misnomer at this point."

Nothing commercially that I'm aware of. The link above is the members buy/sell/trade/swap for PGR.

That's crazy. I'm spraying at low rate right now but I will work it up to a level where I'm eventually getting suppression.

First time PGR user here with a question about PGR and herbicides. I understand you are not suppose to tank mix the two. I am going to be blanket spraying with Dismiss (every week new areas of sedge are popping up :x ). How much time do I need to wait between spraying dismiss and the PGR if any at all?

I would wait two days after spraying dismiss. Someone else may give more information on this

How do you guys time this stuff around your fertilizer applications? do you still apply heavy nitrogen every 4 to 6 weeks along with this stuff about the same time frame and can the two be done together?

So PGR is not timed around fert apps. Most people on here use greenskeeper app to track GDD on when to apply PGR.

Now it may work out timing wise with your fert app and yes you can put down a fert app with PGR. Some guys also spoon feed there yard weekly.
