      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

What is/ How to get rid of this "straw" grass?

Recommended Posts

A friend has a really good looking lawn with mostly nice turf. He has some areas with this stuff: 2511694858_0f480c5fc8_o.jpg

What is it? How do you get rid of it? Thanks

Isn't that crab grass? If so, then I've got it too. I can't seem to get rid of it either!

Looks like quack grass to me. I am sure some of the more experienced guys will know for sure. If it is quack you have to use a "Round Up" type of herbicide. That will also kill your good grasses so some people will use a small brush and paint the individual stems. They used to make a hockey stick type of tool that would wick the herbicide on a pad. You would let the quack grass grow higher than your lawn grasses making it much easier to "paint". Good luck.

It will just grow in larger numbers. There's really nothing too harmful that comes of it, just that it grows faster than the other grass, will eventually kill out the other grass, and all in all, most people will think of it as rather unsightly.

That is quack grass. . . . .Based on what my lawn guy told me there is NOTHING you can purchase that will kill it and not your lawn. I've tried the "Paint on Roundup" technique and it works to a point. It's a slow process but it works. The best thing you can do is have a thick lawn to choke out the quack grass.

We have another post going on about quack grass that I started a few days ago.

Apparently a product called "Certainty" will take care of it. I tried to buy some today from Lesco, but they are all out of it, and none of their local stores have any. The guys at Lesco said it works very well for quack. It is available on hsolist for $139 for a 1.25oz bottle. I am going to order it tonight.

My lawn guy said Certainty will kill my grass and the quack grass. Apparently it only works with certain type (s) of grass. I would apply it to a small section before hitting the entire lawn.

Well, I've been "painting" my Quack Grass for 2-3 weeks (every 3-4 days)w/ Round-up and it hasn't changed. It looks greener every time. I guess that's why I asked "what's the end-result/downside to NOT killing it?" Just wondering what I'm gonna end up with.

Maybe I need to mix it stronger - but, I mixed it a little bit more concentrated than the instructions.
