Traditionally I have used Surflan (oryzalin) as preemergent but it is no longer in production. Moving forward I plan on using Gallery (isoxben). My applications are made twice a year and correspond with my lawn's pre application. Any weeds that might make it through are either hand pulled or pot treated spot treaded with glyphosate. If you have prodiamine or dithiopyr on hand those would work as well.STI_MECE said:How are you able to keep the weeds at bay around the trees you got? I have quiet a few oak trees on my property with shallow roots, if i could keep grass and weeds from growing around the trunks of the trees it would save me a ton of weed eating lol
My goal is to try and stick with that 1" HOC all summer. The smaller area that the walkway separates, which was hit the hardest by the billbugs, is being cut at 2". It will be interesting to see how these areas compare moving forward.Chris LI said:With a string of 100*+ days predicted, are you staying with the 1" HOC you mentioned on 5/23, or do you plan on raising it a little? Do you plan on skipping any mows or any other preparation/mitigation of the high temperatures? I'm always trying to up my game with summer survival, and am curious as to what others are doing.
Luckily it's a dry heat with humidity in the teens. I've lived in the Midwest and the humidity and warm temps definitely warrant some crying and can be just as uncomfortable to the heat out west.Butter said:Dang Wiley that's hot! Maybe I need to quit crying about Kansas weather. The lawn looks great!
Great question! I was wondering the same thing.Wile said:Which wetting agents do you use? I think I missed that.
I've only used Tournament Ready to date. I'd like to try another product or two to see how they compare in the future. Any thoughts or suggestions??bf7 said:Holding strong through the heat! Have you used any other wetting agents and compared their performance with Tournament Ready?
I really like Aquatrols so far after 1.5 seasons (the jug lasts 2 seasons for me), but it's the only one I've used. Like you I'm curious about other options or even how my grass would do with no wetting agent at all. Since I don't have an irrigation system and started sand capping, I feel compelled to put something down. I was considering trying either Tournament Ready or Aristocracy next year. With TR I like the idea of hitting localized dry spots with the pellet gun.Wiley said:I've only used Tournament Ready to date.
