RYBLMC's 60%Bermuda/40%Fescue Journal

Post by RYBLMC » Wed Apr 03, 2019 7:49 pm

I have a 3,200 SQ. FT. yard.

Current Weeds:
  • Redstem Filaree
    Spotted Spurge
    Ground Spurge
    Henbit
    Purple Deadnettle
    White Clover
    Chickweed
    Dandelion
    Ground Ivy
    Carolina Geranium
    Creeping Woodsorrel
    Bermuda Buttercup
A few of the named weeds also have different varieties of the same species(in my yard).

Current Grassy Weeds:
  • Japanese Brome
    Downy Brome(Cheatgrass)
    Crabgrass
Applied Blanket Prodiamine(4 Month) Application on March 6, 2019.
Applied Blanket Glysophate Application on March 31, 2019.

90% of my yard consists of Dandelion, Brome, and Crabgrass all mixed together.

The backyard is shaded by large Cottonwood Trees, I plan to plant Fescue in this half of the yard.
The frontyard is 100% sun, no shade at all. Already has Bermuda mixed in. I plan to overseed the front when it's ready.

I will take pictures as soon as possible.

8 days post Glysophate application pictures. I dethatched the backyard yesterday, 4/7/2019. The little seeds and fuzzy worm looking things are the remains of my huge Cottonwood tree going into bloom.

Dethatched by hand, got about 300 pounds of dead weeds. It’s odd, the birds are pecking the everliving crap out of my yard.. any idea what they’re going after?

Maybe they are going after bugs on the ground since they have no grass/weeds to hide behind. Looking good

The entire front yard, from side to side is completely covered in holes.

I’m glad I didn’t aerate.. the birds are doing it for me! Wonderful!
