Color looks fantastic! Can’t wait to see what the Cx does to it. Do you do preventive fungicide applications or just serenade?
Thanks!

As for fungicides... I sprayed one app of Azoxy and Prop in June one week apart.

I have not used Serenade this year yet. I do have some left over from last year that I need to finish.

I haven't really been on a "schedule" with fungicides. I just keep an eye and spray when needed (and this year, only once so far).

Your pre emergent went down about a week ago. Will you re apply or was it a long enough rate app to get you through?

Eric, how's the lawn going? Did the fertilizer apps a while back continue to feed? Also, I know you have Bullseye, Faith, and a few others in your back lawn. Faith is almost impossible to get these days; I think Scotts is the only one using it in their blends now. Bullseye is almost impossible to find too, and is supposed to be in phase-out currently; did you see my post talking about how The Hogan Company has what is probably the last of it for sale now?

@Green Cx apps every 3 weeks has been great. I did my third app 2 weeks ago and will probably do another one next week and call it for the season.

I haven't really been following what is available now since the lawn is holding it's own. I think adding KBG to the mix has really helped in the backyard has really help with repair.

If anything, I have a few lbs of Bewitched that I could throw in the back. Might do a dormant seeding to some areas back there.

Looking good! Are you noticing that you’re finally taking off a good amount of clippings per mow?
