re: Msm Turf questions - ronk
It is the same as Bermuda but technically bermuda can tolerate a higher dose. In bermuda you can do another spot treatment in 2 weeks. If you have tif you can definitely go higher. Just to experiment on my own lawn I used .85 ozs of Celsius in 2 gallons of water and all it did was yellow my law...

re: Time for Pre-em? - ronk
Can you use a pre emergent? Yes. Should you? Not in my opinion if you are in the south. Fall pre em targets poa along with other winter grasses. Late winter/early spring pre me targets crabgrass and foxtail. I suggest limiting the amount of pre em you apply because it does have a negative affec...

re: Hardest lawn weeds to control - ronk
Your hardest weeds to control are always going to be the grassy variety. Most of the time whatever damages them will also damage your real grass. Dallisgrass, little barley, common bermuda, torpedo grass, and king ranch blue stem....

re: Brand new backyard lawn - ronk
Yeah, don’t do 2-4D. That’s not for grassy weeds which is your concern. If you are going to sod then go for it. If you’re going to seed then make it bermuda but I can help with picking the variety....
