I planted the plugs on Oct 10. Here’s where they are at 6 weeks later.

Left side is “After,” right side is “Before.”

Top is “before,” bottom is “After.”

So far, I really like it. It’s showing good potential. I’m really excited to see where it’s at by the beginning of summer. The color is really interesting.

The large patch in the backyard is pretty bad.

Sprayed Eagle 20 (mode 3) mixed with Daconil in the backyard and half the side yard.

Hopefully I can get some time later today to throw out some granular azoxystrobin.

Spread DiseaseEx at the curative rate (setting 3 on Echo RB-60) in the backyard. Leftover product was spread in the side yard where I had large patch back in January.

Mostly done. Much cleaner than it was.

I think I’ll continue working on this leg until it’s less remarkable.

Trimmed up the bush hiding the A/C and mulched until I ran out.

Cut all three lawns. Trimmed around Christmas lights. Pulled out one bottlebrush shrub. Turns out they don’t have a deep root system; instead it was very wide. Finished up by adding 4 more bags of melaleuca mulch.

Sprayed propiconazole in the front yard and side yard today. I have to walk pretty dang fast with this cyclone/chapin boom setup.

The Bermuda looks awful mixed in with the Saint Augustine at this time of year. It’s really depressing how much Bermuda is sitting in my side yard.

Edit: also sprayed the backyard.
