Dropped the hoc from 4" to 3.5." It's lacking some color. I also put down .5lbs of hyrbrix last monday.

Lowering your HOC will expose more of the crown so it will take a couple of weeks for the lawn to get use to it. You may want to give it a iron app of fas or feature. I think it still looks good.

@Budstl, can you say how often you had to irrigate this summer? Seems like it wasn't much early on.

For the past several weeks, watering has been a daily activity in Tenn.

Thanks @iowa jim. I agrees on an iron treatment. Probably wait for the weather to break.

@social port I'd say I've ran the irrigation 10-15 times. Majority of that was to get products watered in. We're back in the heat again this week. 100 with the heat index. Come on fall already.

@Budstl, did you notice any effect from the hybrix app? Positive or negative?

Today we had record heat of 94. I believe in September was the hottest on record. Of course rain has been minamal now. I've had to irrigate more in September than in July or August. One more day in the 90s and then we're in the 70s. Finally fall will be here. I put down over a pound of nitrogen for the month of September. May not have been the best choice since it got hot. The lawn has recovered from dollar spot. I mowed today and put down some iron. Pre m still needs to go down.

I’ve been wondering how things have been going. Your lawn looks outstanding in that picture. You would never guess record highs when cool season grass looks like that. Man, oh, man.

I got in a mow this evening. I went ahead and got some x grn to try even though it might be a little late in the season for it. I put it down at the high rate over the back yard. What i thought was impressive is I ordered yesterday from lcn before 1pm and recieved it this afternoon. I also put down 1lb of urea(product) to go along with it. The front recieved .5lb n from urea.

I'm not too excited on how the front lawn looks. Still need to fill some of the gaps where i sprayed glyphosate this spring.

Snapping back quick with this drop in temps, looking mighty fine! What % have the glypho spots filled in and what % do you expect before winter?

@Budstl What is your impression of the Hybrix? Thinking about adding it to the plan next season.

I'm not really sure. The smaller spots have filled in, but the larger spots my need to have some plugs.

@bmitch05 i like the hyrbrix. I'll either use that or screamin green next year. If you order hyrbrix, it's best to get it when am leonard has free shipping.

When we got back to the Stl, it was crappy weather. We had a hard freeze the other night, so the growing season should be slowing down.
Today the irrigation was winterized. Also mowed the lawn. It was 9 days since it's last cut.

The 2020 season started today. Granular pre m went down today. Second app will go down late may. Lawn is still fairly dormant, but starting to see some green. I got some carbon x to try this year. 1st app of that will be mid april or so. I'm thinking on adding some fungicides in to the lawn plan this year. Would like to try and control dollar spot. Will likely go granular and rotate between pillar g and clearys.

I didn’t realize that your Ferris is a stand-on. Those are the models I’ve been looking at.
I think you are going to like Carbon-X

Yesterday was the first mow of the season. The yard was like a sponge. We have been getting plenty of rain and more to come. It's still waking up. Also changed the oil and oil filter on the ferris. It's not much to look at now, but got some stripes in
