What can I put on the whole thing to kill the weeds


Grassy weeds, broadleaf weeds, nutsedges,?
There really isn't a "catch-all", so need some more info and pics if possible.

I usually get mine at Lowes by Cortana off Airline. The Siegen Lowes doesnt always carry it. Check your local Lowes online they should have an inventory on the items page.

re: 2019 Lawn Thread
Depends on the weed. Fertilome weed free zone works well on broadleaf weeds. Atrazine on poa annua and bahia. Sedgehammer on nutsedge etc.

I would avoid turf builder and any other weed and feed. Our soil is usually too acidic for any benefit along with too much nitrogen. Will just feed the weeds.

Fertilize late March or when temps are consistently in 70s.

re: 2019 Lawn Thread
Time for me to order a pallet of zoysia sod. For those with experience, do I need to call 411 before using a sod-cutter? There is a transformer on the side of the yard where I'll be cutting, but a sod cutter doesn't go that deep, right?

Milorganite had production issues last year. You will see much more of it this year. Hell, Walmart had it for $11 a bag here in Bama the other day.

Would it be a good idea to put down pre emergent and fungus control today before the rain in Lafayette? It looks like rain for the next week...st aug lawn.

I have some massive areas of die off from brown patch that im not sure ever stopped with the mild winter. So I want make sure I keep the fungus at bay and help stop the weed infestation in the dead areas for the grass to come back.

Bootlegger and those that needed pictures for advice, I have no idea the names of these but want them gone. And then whatever needs to be put out as a pre-e.

Backyard is looking rough. So far I've identified the following:

Clover
Henbit
Annual Bluegrass
Canadian Thistle
Sowthistle

Nutsegde hasn't shown up yet but always does.

Looking like fertilome weed free zone should be my best bet?

Any other ideas? Should I be laying something down today before all this rain or do I need to wait a few more weeks in to March or so?

Definitely going to need post-e. I screwed around and never put down my fall pre-emergent stuff.

Thanks

What can I spot-spray to kill weeds that won’t harm my zoysi? Got a few popping up here and there, and will have more after these rains

Your back yard sounds like mine. Mine is so overtaken by weeds that I think I’m gonna have spray, disk, and plant some centipede seed. I’m waiting to see the results of my atrazine spray before I nuke it.

I have some of the same stuff as you do, along with some other broadleaf weeds. Will atrazine and sethoxydim kill them all?

re: 2019 Lawn Thread
If you had a barren 1/2 yard, what would you do?

I moved into a house in November and had a ton of dirt in to raise the yard/level. The only grass currently is rye grass that I threw down in the front and by the back patio.

I have been back and forth between hydroseeding, laying down some myself, or just letting whatever pop up since I know the natural grass will probably take over any way.

I'm not a huge stickler on the type of grass for the yard, just want something that is good for kids to run around on.

I sprayed atrazine about a week or so ago and the clover still isn't dead. The dandelions look like they did before I sprayed.

Someone else may be able to correct me but I don’t think atrazine will kill clover as a postemerge. But I could be wrong.

I think it usually takes me about 10 days to see results with it anyway though.

Edit: apparently atrazine will kill clover postemerge so I’d give it a least another week before I worried

Yeah, thanks for that. I can see some of the leaves kinda turning, but I am used to round up results. The dandelion doesn't seem to impressed with my atrazine application.

It can take up to a month or so for Atrazine to show it’s full effects but it should handle the dandelion

Can I mow the clover and dandelion or will that cut the poison off.

I'm also wondering this same thing. Would like to mow mine this weekend. At that point my pre-emergent and atrazine will have been applied for over a week.
