re: Late winter pre-emergent application: - CrawDude on 1/27/21 at 9:56 pm
[quote]With that weed free zone and atrizine mixture, is substituting Dawn the same as the weed sticker? I think I remember hearing something about that, or am I thinking of something else?

[quote]1. When are you other South Alabama guys putting down this round of pre-emerge? Should I go ahead and do it now since it’s already on-hand and temps hitting 70+? Or wait another week and apply in Feb? 2. Should I go back to the Prodamine for round 3 in mid-March? Or go with something else...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Late winter pre-emergent application: - CrawDude on 1/26/21 at 9:28 am
Just to add to the good information already provided in this thread, I contacted Dr. Ron Strahan, weed control extension specialist, LSU AgCenter, this morning and he recommends applying lawn pre-emergents for the Baton Rouge area in the first week of February. And of course with pre-emergents it’s ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Questions about stocking a pond - CrawDude on 1/25/21 at 12:20 pm
[quote]1st, read the link that LSUenvy posted. 2nd, a pond that old will usually have undesirable species of fish and the fish species ratios will be out of whack. Evaluate and if needed remove undesirable species by draining and/or poisoning. 3rd, obtain soil/mud samples and lime/ fertilize as re...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: HVAC questions - CrawDude on 1/19/21 at 4:43 pm
That appears to be good pricing for the size unit you are having installed. American Standard=Trane, Ameristar is also a product of Ingersoll Rand the company that owns American Standard/Trane, but I also see where Ameristar heat pumps are made in China. Personally, I’d avoid Ameristar heat pumps f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Tree felling cost - CrawDude on 1/15/21 at 9:24 am
I’m not far from Prairieville, and 3 years ago I had 2 River Birch removed, next to the house, and a Bradford Pear by Mr. D’s Tree Service - all 3 in the 30 ft or so range, but all easily front yard accessible. The cost was $1,250, which included grinding the stumps. They were done in less than 2 ho...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Aeration and top dressing - CrawDude on 1/14/21 at 7:22 pm
Can’t add much to the excellent advice others have provided other to emphasize to aerate when the grass is actively growing. For me in BTR, that would be usually be AprilMay for centipede. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: When and where to pick up some Centipede sod in Baton Rouge? - CrawDude on 1/14/21 at 7:06 pm
I usually buy it at Woerner Turf on Airline Hwy. A pallet is 450 sq ft, so you’ll need a pallet. I bought a pallet of centipede in Nov and it was $175. Quality Sod is another option within a mile of Woener. Much more expensive if you buy individual pieces. If fact it I only needed a 1/2 pallet, but...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Centipede spot spray now? - CrawDude on 1/9/21 at 10:31 am
It’s is always good to control weeds whenever you see them. The younger they are the easier to control. This winter weed cocktail has worked well for me. When spot spraying I usually mix the specified amount ounces in 1 gal of water. If by chance you have annual bluegrass (Poa annua) among the w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Soil Test question - CrawDude on 1/9/21 at 10:07 am
You’ll just need the “routine soil test” by the LSU AgCenter - $11 per sample + postage if mailed in. Don’t be confused by the optional packages of analyzes - those are usually used for speciality crops by or researchers. Now is a good time of the year to do this. It will not include nitrogen (N)...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Cheapest way to fill raised beds? - CrawDude on 1/1/21 at 10:06 am
A 4 x 8 x 1 ft deep is roughly 1 cubic yard (27 cubic feet). As stated a yard of “garden soil/mix” in bulk is a about $35/40 - at least in Baton Rouge. Garden soil/mix/“top soil” is just composted forest products with some sand mixed in. I use it in raised vegetable beds, usually I supplement it wi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
