Mowed and fertilized with some Milo yesterday. Just bought a new home in GA and trying to get the lawn in order. Also, went to SiteOne today to get some Dimension and Celsius. The guy there tells me that I should go with some Lesco Lockup 21-0-7. He was talking about how good it is, and how it would be better for my newish bermuda lawn. For info, It was sodded last fall im pretty sure. I told him I would think on it and wanted to see what yalls opinion is
I just put some lock up down and I can say this, it works! It's great for a budget and all in one. That being said consider doing a soil test and supplementing the potash and phosphorus with what the soil test calls for I work in Augusta and live across the river.

Gave the yard a fresh cut, put down some lime and fertilizer. I hit the weeds with MSM 2 days ago.

Hit a couple patches of Kyllinga/ Sedge with some Ortho nutsedge killer (sulfentrazone) the other day and it is smoked!! now I just need a blanket app but i'll probably fertilize first. Gotta mow too. TGIF!

7 days post Celsius application so I mowed the front and back as low as I can with the zero turn and hit some low spots with sand. Planning to do a full level in July. (25 yards of sand! 😳)

finally took the reel mower around back and gave it a quick mow, up until now i have only been using it on the front yard. Sprayed with certainty 3 days ago, I love that stuff..all the nutsedge is bright yellow and dying already, i have some celsius on the way which i am going to mix with certainty for another application in a few weeks.

@ctrav 🤣🤣it gets better.

As for me, I double cut the entire yard in preparation for guests Sunday for a crawfish boil. Clippings were way less than normal guess that means T nex has taken effect.

@Jacob_S I would be standing in the neighbors lawn when they arrive. Then walk them over to your lawn and say “Welcome to the main event...”
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

It will only be a matter of time before you look down on us with rotary mowers. I just hope you remember when we were jealous of your lawn. Soon you’ll have pictures of your granddaughters using the reel mower saying even they are embarrassed to be seen using a rotary mower. In all seriousness I can’t wait to see your yard mowed reel low. It’s gonna be amazing.
