Next full spray application is due today and tomorrow. This morning I sprayed azoxystrobin and the high rate, Dominion insecticide, iron, and surfactant.

My problem I'm thinking I'm dealing with is I'm getting fungus in the same areas year after year I wonder why that is?

I just got some Grey Leaf Spot too. See the pics in my Journal update.

My issue is that I have an area not covered by irrigation so I was watering after work.... bad news.

I put down Myclobutanil @ 2.4oz/K per @greendoc recommendations but I think Azoxy is better. I should’ve gone to get Scott’s DiseaseEx immediately but didn’t.... oh well

A few things I've notice after this last post.

As it gets hotter say July 1 brown creeps into the Bermuda stem and gives the brown haze look after you cut. So I may mini scalp every July and August until I figure that out.

Next definitely need plenty more sand for leveling so I will plan for that next year.

So far hasn't been a bad year at all

Mini scalp on my side yard from 3 to 2.5 hopefully this resets the stem height.

I still have to do the biggest part of the yard. I was nervous about this so I decided to take small bites doing this😁

Both. That's why I only went to 2.5 inches any lower will not be good for the St Augustine.

Okay I've tried different chemicals to kill this areas of grass. I never knew what type of grass this was but I've gotten tried
Image

Image

Now, I hit it with Quikpro Roundup, Esplanade EZ, and MSO.

Image

Now going to hit this again on Monday and rake all the dead grass out over the weekend. If I can find St Augustine sod sheets I will put them in afterwards.

Theres another area like this on the opposite side of the yard. After I get this area took take of I will tackle the other one.

New update I got 5 yards of river sand and picked area of my lawn to level. To me sanding is one of the most difficult jobs in lawn care. Seems like there never enough sand. Anywho I'm sanding every year in April and August til I get it right.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Let's see if I can get this to fill in before the season over. I got six weeks until grass starts slowing down. I'm using 36-0-0 at .50 per 1k every week until seasons over. Wish me luck

Here's a pic through my security camera.

Okay after those five yards of sand a problem rose it's head. Weeds were everywhere, nutsedge, spurge, Virginia buttonweed, etc so I mixed Celsius+prosedge+NIS and sprayed late yesterday evening.

This is why I'm scared to bring in river sand, they're usually packed with weeds.

I really don't know what kind of sand to ask for . The haulers only seem to have topsoil and river sand. You are definitely correct though I wish I can find a better sand with less problems.

Do you know of any haulers that get better sand?? @reauxl tigers

Not off the top of my head, I'd have to do a little research but I do know the most recommended kind of sand for leveling is mason sand. The same stuff golf courses use for greens maintenance and what not. I don't know who has some in bulk around here but I'm sure I could find out or even go to a local municipal course as a last resort and ask where they had it delivered from.
My first instinct would be to check Cleggs
