I'll kick this thread off



The strips in this one are a little banged up from trenching for irrigation install (the strip at the property border is actually PRG). The rest Bewitched.

---------------------

More PRG below...LOVE this blend so far. If it survives summer I am considering a backyard reno to this.

Before mowing, no PGR or milo in over a month.

------------------------------
after mowing/striping + 2 days after a PGR spray and light FAS. Some areas are slightly tinged from over-spray.

That looks amazing! Dark green, full. It seems like the typical temptation is KBG or TTTF, but that PRG is a sound alternative. I wonder why it isn't more popular. Does it not handle summertime temperatures as well?

Thanks. The PRG is amazing. It blew past my Bewitched sometime in June and never looked back. My wife commented today after cutting how that section is "so dark green" and it looks like "artificial turf". I don't know, a lot of people say it doesn't handle summers well and it has winter kill...I haven't seen any of that so far. No thinning, no color loss, no disease, no weeds. It's about to get hotter soon so we'll see. but up to this point it's a perfect 10.

Sounds great. That begs the question of what cultivars you are using. I think I'm going to do a bit more reading about how PRG does in the hot and humid southeast.

Yeah not winter kill and hot temps problems for me as well. I only have like 2 or 5 days in the 90s. I get stupid cold in the winter.

I am not looking back either.

I'm using seedsuperstore's SS9000 blend. I think it's Pangea, and a couple other ones. I haven't been watering much because it's been hot and muggy here and I noticed 2 of the PRG sections in my poorest soil definitely took a turn down this week. It looks like drought stress/heat stress or possibly disease. I'm still new to PRG so I'm not familiar with what it looks like when disease hits. The other little sections are still chugging along but look like they lost a little color. First ***** in the armor to what was looking like the perfect grass for the last 10 months. I'm going to water tomorrow morning to see if they all perk back up. It's crazy how 1 week of hot/humid weather made a pretty big difference. KBG usually slowly goes into summer decline. Just something to think about. I've read that PRG turns south very fast mid-summer so we'll see if that's happening here.
