Gave it a cut today. I am still amazed at what PGR can do. I hadn't cut my back yard since 5/5 (11 days ago) and it produced the amount of clippings I'd expect from 4-5 days of growth without PGR.

I also applied 40lbs of Humic DG and about 10lbs of Headway G. The Headway was left over from last year. Thought I'd put some down on my front and side yard where I had some fungus issues last year as a preventative for this year.

I've got a few broadleef weeds and some nutsedge coming up, so I plan to give it a shot of Certainty and Celsius this weekend. Certainty calls for no mowing 2 days before or after so I will apply on Saturday or Sunday and won't mow again until next Wednesday.

Do you typically do PGR first then mow 4 hours after? Or mow first and PGR 1 hour after? The label says you can do either, wondered if there’s a preference one way or the other...

I've done both. I typically apply PGR 1 hour after mowing as it works better for my routineh, but have had the same results either way.

Cool. Good to know. I applied mine this morning for the first time. Plan to mow sometime after lunch. Eager to see how it does. Thanks!

Applied my 2nd dose of PGR this morning an hour after I mowed. Seed heads have been out in full force as we have had some extreme temps this last week or so.

Been busy so I haven't had time to post an update until tonight.

Rented an aerator on 5/26 from Home Depot. Aerated in two directions. Gave the cores about a week to dry up and mowed over them with my Honda rotary on 6/1. Applied my first application of Carbon X on 6/2 at 3lbs per 1ksft.

Photos are from 6/5.

You go with the Classen CA-18 or Ryan Lawnaire IV and single or double pass? I've seen both in my area. I'm trying to price out contractor rates but last resort would be to rent from HD.
