Grass/clover lawn is looking good this month!
Thanks. Mowing with an even cut is looking a lot better. Before I started cutting, the clover was taller than the grass and generally laying over and not blending well.
I've seen a few of what appears to be young yellow nutsedge or annual sedge, leaves feel like trifoliate "sedge". I've pulled annual sedge past few years. Didn't think it was warm enough for sedge yet. I'll spray Roundup for Northern Lawns (R-T-S) on them to see what happens. I believe last year I sprayed that product on some larger mature nutsedge plants twice and didn't notice a kill so had to spray Ortho Nutsedge Killer (R-T-S) with the higher sulfentrazone % amount to actually kill it.
Seems this month has been a little cooler than last year. Late next month is when air & humidity goes up and fungal disease, mainly BP, starts to appear. I'll be cutting my grass at a lower HOC this year thinking that will provide more air flow. I also haven't put down a higher amount of nitrogen. Maybe the lower HOC and low N# will minimize favorable disease formation.
