2019 Reno Results

Post by Ecubed » Sat Oct 12, 2019 6:55 pm

Just wanted to share my results I have gotten after a kill off and TTTF seed. Pretty happy with the outcome!

I seeded with a local TTTF mix on September 3rd
Image
After seed down I put out Scott's starter fertilizer with weed preventer at bag rate.
Followed by 6oz per 1000 of RGS and 9oz per 1000 of Air-8. I didnt do mechanical aeration this time around.
Image

This before picture is after I killed off 90% of the backyard, dethatched and cut/bagged at 3/4 inch

I had germination after 4 days, and cut the yard 3 weeks after germination. Following the cut, I put down an application of Carbon X at bag rate.
Image
This picture was after the 3rd cut last night.

Thank you guys, it definitely wasn't easy. I battled upper 80s and low 90s throughout the whole thing. Not to mention my wife wanting to kill me for always having to drag the sprinkler around 😂

Just the cheapo melnor oscillating sprinkler from home depot. 5k sq feet, I usually get the corners by hand then set it up in 2 places to get good coverage on the yard.

I did the front with their Bluegrass blend from Grasspad. It needs to tiller more, but that will come next Spring I'm sure. It was a battle with the hot temps as it's my experience Bluegrass needs as much time to establish as possible. I seeded late August in Lenexa, KS.

I have a 25lb of the HeatWave blend too, but that backyard overseed didn't happen. I'll work on it next Spring and just not put down pre-emergent until after it gets established.
