re: Herbicide Application Temperature Limits - JDat
Pretty sure it means when the average temp is above 85. I use that and MSMA on same grass. I have spot sprayed during the summer. Grass turns brown for about a week and bounces back. Spot application, you're okay, but will have brown spots. I wouldn't spray the entire yard. ...

re: Out of town for 10 days - Should I cut my grass lower than usual? - JDat
don't cut it low. If you can't find someone to cut it for you after 5 days, just pick deck up high when you get back. Wait 2 days and drop to normal height. ...

re: Weed blocker under pea gravel - JDat
I have the black "paper" under mine. It's like a woven sheet. Seems like it keeps most stuff out. But coco grass pops through it. Never thought about shingles. I would try that. ...

re: Live Oak roots above ground, slab threat? - JDat
I have 2 drake elms in my front yard. Haven't noticed any roots running on top the ground. (not far from the tree anyway). They grow fast and offer a pretty good canopy. ...

re: Live Oak roots above ground, slab threat? - JDat
If you grind the roots, tree will either die or the roots will come back. They do make some kind of underground fence for roots. You basically run a trencher and drop this mesh stuff in the trench. I never used it before, but researched it as I almost built on a lot with lots of oak trees. ...

re: Lawn Height of Cut - JDat
Cut my back yard last night down to 1.5" Used a 18" manual reel that I bought for $100. Plan on dropping 42" rotary down to 1.75" for front yard tonight. ...

re: Lawn Height of Cut - JDat
I have zenith zoysia. Went back and forth when deciding on a new mower. Reel vs rotary. Ended up going with a 42" zero turn rotary. Yard is just a little to big to push all the time. Been cutting at 2" with no issues. No scalping issues. Want to try dropping to 1.5" eventually. Anyone have e...

re: If US Soccer wants better coaches at the grassroots level - JDat
I also think requiring these licenses deters people from wanting to coach. The class E was clearly a money grab. Lots of clubs will pay the fee for the coach, but who wants to sit through that. And regardless of the classroom setting, it doesn't mean they can teach you to coach. I've seen coache...

re: If US Soccer wants better coaches at the grassroots level - JDat
I got my E license back before they came up with the grass roots course. It was a 3 day course. Not going to say I didn't learn anything, but I felt like it was a bit of a joke. Was def a participation license and everyone gets it just for showing up. I honestly learned more from youtube / inter...

re: Anyone here ever replaced their outdoor porch ceiling? - JDat
Built 2 years ago and this was something I looked closely at. I was told hardy is too heavy to hang overhead. Was told they make something called a smart board that is OSB and Hardy backed. Only comes in smooth tho. As for floating hardy, forget it. Parents did it on the walls of their pool cab...

re: Sugar Kettle water feature - JDat
Just bought a 5' iron for $1200. Best price I found. Unless you find a used one for sale, that's about the rate. Iron ones have to have inside coated if you're going to put water. That was included in the $1200. $1100 with no coating....

re: Palisades Zoysia in South Lousiana (Update with pics on pg 3 in month 5) - JDat
Hydro seeded Zenith late last summer. It's finally starting to take shape. Been cutting with a rotary push, but cutting high for now to encourage growth and spreading. Once this stuff thickens up, I'd like to cut between 1 1/2" -2" tall. Does it really make a huge difference going to a reel? ...

Appreciate it Duke. Looks like the combo of too much soon and too little water will be a horrible combination. Really glad I asked these questions before I started digging! ...

re: Landscape Pond - JDat
Appreciate the bump Duke. Guess I should have searched first. :spank: Where it's at, it will get 3/4 of the days sun, starting in the morning. So am I asking for lots of issues dealing with algae? How do you fight it? Chemicals? Plan on having a few fish in there. Would a complete drain ...

re: Landscape Pond - JDat
Thanks. I never think to go to LSU ag center. This is good info. I've done some research, but would like to hear from someone who's done this. I don't want to create maintenance monster. Hoping a couple plants and correct number of fish, and a balance system can occur. But I've read most p...

Landscape Pond - JDat
I have a large section of my flowerbed that I'm considering making into a small pond. I would think it would be 150-200 sq ft of surface area. Have the old school pump leaking water into it. I would def have to go with a flexible liner. Small skimmer with a pump feeding the fake pump. 2' depth ...

re: Painters scheduled to start this week. Interior of our home - JDat
Just depends on what kind of people they are. They not getting paid to stay at home. If they have any sense, they'll realize that they'd be in quarantine at work basically. Equal as important question. make sure they have paint and everything else they need. I'm sure you can find open store...
