Yesterday was a big scalp day on the backyard. I used my greensworks dethatcher and then ran over everything with with the rotary on the lowest setting several times. I pulled out a ton of dead material, way more than expected. I can really see the dirt now. Still no fert because it’s not warm enough.

Today I did a 6 month rate of prodiamine on the same area (1 oz total for 2,700 square foot) with a bit less on the areas that need to fill in after the fence removal. Watered it all in using my mp rotators connected with a hose.

Before and after scalping

My liquid peptides shows up yesterday from subvertnpk.com

I applied this morning to my front yard (0.5 oz per M) along with some Greene effect 7-0-0 (6 oz per M) and Microgreene 0-0-2 (6oz per M)

Used the red XR teejet nozzle since it’s a foliar app. Did two passes in different directions... worked out really well

I’m hoping this will get rid of the chlorosis I have

We had ourselves a bit of a late freeze and snow this past weekend


Image

This week the temps are warming up and hopefully staying that way.

I’m not full on fertilizing yet but I did spray a little today

Front yard (rates per M)
O.75 oz depth 10+ peptides
8 oz Greene effect
6 oz microgreene

Backyard (2.7 M)
2.5 oz depth 10+ peptides (going heavy)
8 oz Greene effect

We’ll see how this works. The front looks fairly green and nice but the backyard is struggling. The la Prima I seeded last year is coming up real slow and thin and yellow. Everything is scalped and dethatched. Just need warmer weather...

This week I fertilized the front and back with 13-13-13 at a half pound N per M rate. I’m saving my xgrn for later...

I also did an app of subvert depth 10+ on the front and back. The front was light and the back was a full dose around 3oz per M

I need to keep better notes of what I’m doing....

Things are greening up nicely with the subvert depth 10+and xgrn 8-1-8. My neighbors yard looks amazing too (the one in the top right with the handicap ramp) and all they’ve had this year is prodiamine, a touch of humic 12, a pound of N per M through 13-13-13 and maybe two waterings.

We haven’t had a significant rain in months so I’m really surprised how well everything looks. I’ve been mowing the neighbor lawn about every 3 days at an inch with the earthwise 7 blade and mine every day or two at 0.4 inches with the GM1000.

This spot here (middle strip surrounded by concrete) is getting liquid only fert this season. I’m using Peters professional all purpose 20-20-20 with chelated micros. It’s only had 0.4 pounds N so far this year. The pic below is before the first app. Looks nice and green without any fert so far.

A while back you said you were having to take your GM to D/FW area for service. I told you I’d ask around the Lubbock area. There’s a gentleman named Scott who does onsite reel work. You can contact him @ 806-773-3643.
