How To Apply A Split Application with Prodiamine WDG Pre-Emergent Herbicide. Part 1: Costs

Seems this year I’m getting a lot more questions on pre-emergent prodiamine but in regards to liquid application options (water dispersible granule  WDG). I think this is because the community is becoming more advanced, which is awesome. I also think that many of us have been steered to liquids because we enjoy spraying the N-Ext products so much. Whatever the reason, it’s a topic that I want to provide content about so you can make an informed decision this season on how you are going to carry out your pre-emergent strategy. Pack A Lunch! This is going to be one of those VERY long, detailed posting so I broke it into 2 parts. Here is Part 2 if you want to skip right to the "pounds on the ground" for the prodiamine split application strategy. There is a  cool infographic for you to print and literally map out your strategy there as well. And when I mention “details” I’m not kidding. Lots of...

When To Apply Prodiamine 65 WDG (Water Dispersible Granule) In Spring Using Split Applications Part 2

This is a 2 part breakdown of Prodiamine 65 WDG giving you a yearly application schedule with soil temperature milestones. Part 1 of this series can be found here. So you want to understand the meaning of a “split application” or “split app” of prodiamine pre-emergent herbicide and you want to do it liquid. In the previous post, I broke down all the costs of applying your prodiamine in this manner and I’m sure that peaked a lot of interest among you more advanced Lawn Care Nuts. That said, let’s first take a look at the label. THIS IS AN ADVANCED STRATEGY - NOT FOR BEGINNERS. In my label booklet from my product - this is page 10. If you notice here in the screenshot, they are basically telling us how many months of pre-emergent control or effectiveness we should get at these various rates (these are targets and vary by region). The challenge we have is these calculations are...

Getting ready to throw down in 2019!

What’s up y’all? Is it cold where you are? I’m seeing all kinds of reports on the news about the cold snap hitting everyone across most of the US. I’m hoping this email will help warm you up and light a fire in your belly because spring is almost here! That said, it’s been pretty cold here too. Night time temps getting into the high 40s, which, I know most of you would LOVE to have right now… but here, with our warm season turf, it’s wreaking havoc on my ability to Enjoy The Mow. I’m only having to cut every 14 days right now, although I do give it a charity mow here and there (credit terminology: Connor Ward). But that’s cool because with all this free time I have, I’ve spent hours and hours re-writing all of my guides for the season. All the free guides and the paid guides… all of them.In fact, last week I was...

Late Fall Dormant Lawn Seeding

Happy end of October my friends! If you have not seen, I uploaded a video recapping my first ever visit to the Green Industry Expo in Louisville, KY last week. Check it out here! Also, one more quick announcement:   Lawn Flags For You Or Your Friends We have released some fun lawn marking flags branded for us with our Lawn Care Nut humor injected, sometimes subtly, other times straight up “in your face.”   These flags are inspired by the ones professional applicators leave in the lawn after they spray. I figured we should be able to “mark our territory” too - and these flags are perfect for showing everyone that they’ve been dominated. Check them out here.     Now, let’s get onto some questions I’ve been getting this week, specifically around dormant or winter lawn seeding.   Cool Season Grass Types Late Fall Dormant Lawn Seeding You guys just want to Throw Down, I get it. And since the lawn has...
