re: Still ok to fertilize?

Yeah, it was. Honestly, the lawn looks better than has in 3 years since moving in. I don't think the goal is to exceed values, or even put in high range but the soil sample was very low for basic plant health. I have runners for once, thicker looking lawn. It's getting much better for sure. ...

Thanks. Per my soil test, my NPK were really low which is why I was following a guide of sorts. My lawn was thin, not looking great. I'm due to apply 16-0-8 in July. I was just concerned with heat, and as you even say too much fert. This is my third application this year, so its not insane a...

Still ok to fertilize?

My soil samples showed I was lacking everything. So I'm trying follow the recommendation but I'm also worried about fertilizing in July. Is that normal? Safe? Centipede lawn fwiw....

He was gone for a week prior to the debate, but when can expect him to return to work? We taking bets? I say not until the 4th of July. :lol:...
Let's not forget, this man was away for the last what 9 days to prepare for this night as well. 9 days and still had a rough night. Everyone here also said he had the questions in advance. He changed subjects mid-answer at times. There is no way he can continue like this. ...

I'm so confused by this. Solitaire herbicide is 56% quinolac but also sulfentrazone and is labeled for centipede, but drive xlr8 is 18% quinolac but not safe for centipede lawn. ...

When though? Am I too late seeing the beetles now? I thought it was late April into May. I vaguely recall someone else posting they saw them in March.......

Grubs prevention

Posted by chieftiger on 4/10/24 at 6:49 pm
Do yall do a grub prevention? I've found a few beetles around the lawn, although dead likely from monthly bifen spray. I have some bare spots I assume were from these bastards.....grubEx or imidacloprid? If so, when do you put it on lawn? ...

re: Soil sample--now what?

Posted by chieftiger on 3/14/24 at 8:05 pm
Really? Good? I must really be a rookie with this stuff. Looking at it though, I'm very low with npk, and I always thought centipede wasn't to get P, but would a 12-12-12 be good in this scenario? And if so, how often? I don't want to over apply being everyone says centipede needs little fert. ...
