Day 176.

The lawn needs a trim...but we are still green!

I’m sure winter dormancy is right around the corner.

That's a hell of a renovation! NIce work. Did the ARDEN 15 germinate/emerge any faster than P77? Any noticeable differences at the end of the growing season in those areas?

@cglarsen

Thank you sir!

If the Arden 15 emerged any faster it would of been hard for me to tell because I had to mix the Arden 15 into the existing back lawn which was already P77 with some some 419 SOD in some areas.

I was concerned if the back lawn was going to match up correctly...since I mixed the 2 cultivars....but Pennington Seed said they would match just fine and I think they matched up pretty good.

Here is a pic of The Arden 15 and Princess 77 mixed together with 419 SOD laid right beside the 2 seeded mixed cultivars.

Yeah I guess they really are similar varieties. How's the density of the seeded areas vs that 419? I imagine next season you will really thicken up with that low reel mowing and better developed root structure.

@cglarsen In my front yard which is more established and is 100% P77 I personally can't tell a difference in the density of 419 vs the P77.

It looks like the p77 has held on pretty well. Great job!

For the most part, everyone’s Bermuda is completely dormant in this area. We had about a week where the night time temps were upper 20’s to low 30’s. It was toast after that.
