you'll have to decide next year if you want to overseed in the spring but if you do you can't throw down any pre emergent. there is one pre emergent you can use but I forgot which one that won't stunt new seed growth. i'm pretty much done for the year. the local maintenance for our community already did the winterizing for our irrigation. so now it's up to mother nature for watering for the rest of the year

I lived in San Jacinto back in the days and I use to drive by them all the time. they had a big billboard that said "SuperBowl Sod" by the way did you know that right down the street from West Coast Sod in Hemet is where they shot several scenes for the first movie "The Fast and the Furious?" the water tower where they parked the civics and also when they hijacked the semi at the end of the movie. just a fun fact lol!

Tenacity or Mesotrione (which is basically the main component of Tenacity). Yeah, I'll just play it by ear and see how the lawn fairs over winter. It was doing pretty good up until I got hit with lawn disease(s) in the fall and the weather & work didn't cooperate enough for me to treat it. Still had some less dense areas to deal with but what was there did good. I have some patches where I had some dollar spot in the front to seed come spring but oh well. I raked them out this fall but the grass didn't fill in at all. I have 125lbs of seed waiting to go down since I didn't make it in time this fall. lol

had a bad case of fungus early Spring with all the rain and warm temperatures. my problem at the time is I didn't have a bagger since I always mulch. eventually with 3 bottles of Bayer Fungicide I was able to cure it. too bad you couldn't get that seed down. I will tell you I see a big difference with some over seeding as my lawn looks a lot more dense and thick than previous years since this is the first time I overseeded since I've owned the house for 3 years. not sure what seed you bought but i'm very pleased with the results with Pete's GCF Tall Fescue blend. i'll be using this cultivar every fall until it overtakes the salad bar my grass has lol! good luck with the cocktail you're throwing down!

It's all KBG but split across 4 different cultivars. 50lbs Appalachian (uncoated) and 50lbs Concerto (also uncoated). The other bag is 50lbs but is coated seed so half of it goes to the coating. The other 25% is actually half KBG and half perrenial rye (that I forgot about.....but originally figured it die out anyways because it's rye...lol). The KBG components are Fielder and SR2100 KBG.

I was hoping Pete would have his blend out but he is still experimenting with it. Looks like he is hoping to get it out to folks next fall (2020).

I thought about getting his TTF blend again but wanted to experiment with some KBG cultivars (nte: to do that, I'd have had to have seeded this fall...d'oh). There cultivars that are more disease and drought resistant than the traditionals. Most won't touch TTF but I was wary from the explosion of clumping fescue that I came down with. In all liklihood, I'll go with a TTF and KBG blend down the road. I've been keeping the grass around 3.5" most of the year but am mowing down before winter. I'm at 2.5" now and will probably keep it about that as it goes dormant.

I might just throw fresh soil and compost on my East side yard in the spring and overseed it as new. It is pretty sparse and the weakest of all my grass. Admittedly, I won't both tilling it since I figure whatever grass is strong enough to work through the dirt I'll dump on it....well, it deserves to stay. It really isn't at all dense, though, so I think I'll be good. Plus, with 2 dogs it will help to rotate what section of the lawn I work on.

Now stop posting pictures of your lawn and making me feel bad. lol

lol I was about to say Pete has a KG blend but wasn't sure if he had it released yet. he's pretty good and making sure he picks the best cultivars. is that the method to get the grass cut down low before winter. i'm still currently at 3.5" but wasn't sure about how low it should be before the snow? can't promise the picture taking since every time I mow the stripes just says "picture time!"

Last video I saw was...several weeks ago I think but he was saying he'd be testing it out and into next year and was hoping to release it fall 2020.

Not sure exactly how low but I figured around 2.5" was okay. Not too low, not too high. This afternoon, I moved all my liquid lawn stuffs (liquid amendments, fungicides, insecticide, etc...) to the basement for winter keeping. I may still try fungicide but not all the snow we got the other day has melted and the temps at night will be below freezing next week.

I have all the NEXT products in my garage cabinets. Are you suggesting it's better to take them inside and store them in the basement?

Not suggesting or saying it is a requirement. I think the important thing is that they not freeze but I'm honestly not sure if that is detrimental for them.

I never fully got my garage organized like I wanted to so I had some of my stuffs in a cabinet and some out next to the cabinet. I'm just choosing to store them on one my my basement shelves where I know the climate is stable. My garage doesn't freeze but it's just an extra layer of security given how much $ it all cost. Grass seed was moved to the basement as well. I'm leaving granulars in the garage (Sevin and Disease-X).

Looks like the grass is getting ready to go into dormancy. Grass hasn't grown much since temperatures have been dropping

Temps up to the low 40's today and was going to mow for the last time....but said f it since I had already cut it down to 2.5" and the growth has slowed a lot the last several weeks. Sprayed Wilt Pruf on all the boxwoods to see if that'll keep them happy over the winter.

Not sure of the fungus name, but liberal application of boiling water seems to kill it...

Didn't think I'd be happy about my bermuda going into dormancy. More time to do other things! I still need to spray Prodiamine.

Anyone used Rain Bird sprinkler systems before? Seems my new home comes with one (with a rain/freeze sensor as part of it) and just wondered how people had found using them in the past.

my house came equipped with Rain Bird. so far everything's been running fine. real easy to use. I don't have the rain sensor tho but after winter i'll probably look into that feature. for now it's nice not having to mow for at least he next 5 months
