Just one or the other. I personally have never used the Heritage G, but have heard it works well too.

Boot, new home construction with bermuda. I have an irrigation system as well. What do I need to do to make sure my grass doesn't die in the first month (except watering)

Well if your goal is to just not kill it, watering is all you need to do

Sod? Keep it watered. A slow release nitrogen fertilizer right now wouldn't hurt

Boot. What’s the shelf life of Sedge Hammer? I have a bottle from last summer I may spray tonight.

re: 2019 Lawn Thread
Depends on the climate of where it's kept, but for one season you should be fine

It's pretty hard to diagnose a lot from pictures. Looks like there are some compaction issues. Ran a soil test yet this season?

re: 2019 Lawn Thread
I have centipede grass and last year, which was our first year after we built our house, our grass developed a few brown spots in our backyard. The small brown spots ranged from 6-8 inches around and darker green grass surrounded it. We have a dog so I initially thought it could be due to him using the bathroom but this year it is a bit worse.


Boot- Does this sound like brown patch? And what should I do? Buddy of mine has a similar issue out in Hammond and he was told to put down some Bioadvances complete insect killer.

Any orange/yellow color around edge of rings? Do those spots look the same right now, or are they greening up?

re: 2019 Lawn Thread
I think most of what y’all are seeing is it hasn’t bounced back from the winter yet, it was in the 30s 2 weeks ago, 40s now. If you have a blend of St Aug, and centipede, the centipede seems to bounce back quicker than the St Augustine.

It will likely fill in, but the biggest issue will be its giving a spot for weed seeds to find a new home.

Is the beginning of May too late to lay some granular pre-emergent down on Bermuda?

Also planning on throwing some milo down. I’m tracking 12lb/1000sqft. Is that what you guys are using?

You ain't preventing much at all in May, so yes. And Milorganite is only 6-4-00....what you'll benefit is from the iron content. Put down pretty much as much as you want.

I like that deep green color, so when my yard doesn't look almost blue when I'm driving down the street, I put another round of MIilorganite. 3/4 bags on my small yard early on, then about half that as it heats up and everything is full.

From reading the Internet / YouTube looks like you can throw down milo at crazy rates and get zero burn. I know you said you throw down 3/4 of a bag on your small yard. Is 12lb/1000sqft about right or should I go heavier?
