Been putting down 0.25 lbs N via granular ammonium sulfate weekly on the non reno area since labor day (prills visible in last pic). Total N to date 4.07 lbs/k. Trying to do same app 2x per week on the reno.

Haven't mowed in a few days. Worked all weekend and rain likely would have hindered me anyways, so I just decided to go out and snap some rainbow pics tonight. Due for PGR on 10/5. Will likely apply light and be my last app of the year.

Looking amazing! What AS are you using that you can spread .25lbs evenly? I'm looking for something granular I can spread easily. Sorry if I missed this in the journal.

I am just using a standard granular 21-0-0 from Advanced Turf Solutions. For putting it down I use a handheld spreader. It is definitely a small amount of product, so using a push spreader makes it near impossible to get even distribution (unless you mix it with another product as a carrier which is mentioned in a few journals). With something like this I don't necessarily make it an exact science. I know that the spreader holds ~6 lbs of product, so if I'm in a hurry I don't even weigh.

Thanks! First frost (just based on my memory) around Indianapolis usually falls within the 10 days leading up to Halloween. Right now my extended forecast for the next 2 weeks doesn't even show us dropping below 50, so there's plenty of good time left.

Was able to dodge rain (minus some light drizzle during the mow) this morning and put down some single-triples today just to change it up. One direction only on front and east side of house. Driveway side I went two directions, perpendicular. HOC: 7/8"

Reno Progress: Keeps chugging along. Seeing quite a few more broadleaf weeds, but I haven't been able to get out and hand pull for the last week due to work and rain. Sedge problem that I was seeing earlier seems to have subsided with temps cooling off. Probably going to pass on any treatments this fall and see where it's at in the spring.

Thanks! Neither neighbor even does their own mowing, so I think it's more they think I'm insane rather than they are envious.

Yeah, I find it’s best to just deal with it when you see it. You ignore it and it spreads. I’ve kind of come to grips that sometimes your just going to have to deal with triv.

Someone wanted a quick photoshoot after the walk tonight. Grass closest to driveway starting to rebound first, as expected, as pgr has expired.
