Milo can be thrown down every week *IF* you wanted to. :bandit: But you'll be mowing every few days... :lol:M_GEEZY MW said:So question.... How long between Milo treatments should be?

I'm a bored-lined obsessed with increasing my OM. I'm also applying SBM, cracked corn, alfalfa pellets during the growing season as well. I'll back off come fall time and only use synthetics as microbial activity begins to slow down. I'll then follow the aggressive nitrogen approach.M_GEEZY MW said:Nice, thank you for the advice @zeus201 & @MikeD ! So in addition to Milo every 2 weeks what else? you ever put a normal fert down occasionally or just stick to Milo?
For the grubs you can go with grub ex sometime before the end of May. Get rid of the grubs will hopefully get rid of the mole. If not just buy a trap from any garden center and set it in an active run. The rust is another issue. I get it as well. Once I see it I usually start to bag clippings so it doesn't spread. If you water make sure it's warky morning so grass drys out during the day. You could also throw down some fertilizer to help lawn "grow it out".M_GEEZY MW said:@mmacejko
yes, that is pretty much what I am thinking as well. I guess my next question would be about grubs and fungi... I am pretty sure I have some because I have a mole problem in my back yard usually which has destroyed my back yard. Thinking of doing a complete reno this fall in the back. I know I have gotten rust in the front yard before, but this was before I have taken on such and interest in my lawn and didn't really pay much attention to it, just remember my shoes getting orange when I mowed in previous years. Who knew that lawn care was so complex?! I am really looking forward to learning and seeing what I can do now that I am taking an active role/interest in my lawn.
