I managed to get down 33-0-0 plus spray pennant Magnum, Princep, and Imidacloprid.

I need to manage to get AIR 8 and RGS down sometime this month as well.

I'm spraying dismiss and MSM turf which is basically Blindside on my lawn. Spot spraying different weeds that made it past my fall pre emergents.
Image

These are the weeds I'm trying to get rid of. Im pretty sure there winter weeds so they will die anyway but I'm getting tired of looking at them.
Image

POA annua came in where I roundup all the dallisgrass last winter.


Image

This fall was my first season spraying pre emergents so my hope is the more I do it the greater the control I will get over the weeds

***The last time I sprayed dismiss it burned the tips of my St Augustine so I will not purchase this chemical prosedge will take it's place in my arsenal.***

I definitely need to sand, but I don't have my drag mat built yet.

Came in the mail today.

Now it's time to figure out how I want to modify this. I know a chain and shackle for hookup is in the plan.

I'm not sure if you've seen the post(s) but, @Ware or someone else, mentioned taking the crossbeam on the drag mat, and clamping it on the side edge (90 degrees left or right) so that it makes the drag mat more rigid and doesn't allow the joints to articulate down into a low spot and drag sand/dirt/compost out of the area you're trying to level.

Just thought i'd mention it as it sounds like a great idea.

I wonder if he has a picture of what your talking about. Because I'm lost on this. I changed the hook up for it today.

see the thread here. @@Pete1313's photos are no longer working, but if you scroll down to @Ware's post he starts discussing what i was attempting to describe.

I sprayed RGS, AIR8, and Humic 12. I knew it was going to rain later that day but I had no idea it was going to do this

This is the extra lot that I don't own yet.

Needless to say I will order plenty of sand this season.

Oh yeah this also happened

My FIL was saying that the leaves got so wet and soaked they became to heavy to hold up. So I now have to figure out how to fix this.

Mowed, edged, and trimmed. Trimmed all the roses brushes also. Since I got the stander I know every uneven spot in my yard.

I sprayed PGR/Lawnstar surfactant on my side lot. It's a mix of Bermuda and St Augustine. Most Bermuda, but I sprayed at .125 oz per 1M. Now to track the progress.

I went ahead the rest of the lawn today to get it on a schedule.

Had sand delivered this morning I thought the rain was going to catch but mother nature gave me a break
Image

It was only five yards delivered, and I may order another five yards next weekend all depends on how I feel.
Image

Image

I spread it with a iron garden rake then used the drag mat to smooth it out. I have to get alot of experience in this because I still have uneven spots

Again another year another fungus.caught some gray leaf spot. Only thing I can think of was I put down a preventative application of azoxystrobin at the low rate and thought it would last 28 days. I now realize the low rate is only for 14 days so that's how I probably got caught.
Image

Anywho, this was the problem I ran into one morning.
Image

Image

So I spot sprayed those spots with a mix of propiconazle and azoxystrobin with azoxy being at the high rate. It looks like its pushing through for the most part. On my next preventative application I will spray the high rate of azoxystrobin.
