Help Guys-Dandelions

5 posts in this topic

I play for a local town baseball team, and we have trouble with dandelions in the outfield grass. Last fall we also put in an underground irrigation system on the field. That helped choke some of them out this summer as the grass thickened. I was out on the field yesterday and noticed that there are still many dandelions out there.

My question is:

Would now be a good time to apply a weed n feed?? What kind?? Liquid/granular?

I'm not very familiar with lawn care, so any help you could give me is much appreciated.

Personally, I'd wait until the first hard frost of the year.

This will trigger the plant to suck in all the energy it can to winter, and you'll get the best bang for the buck.

However, if you plan on fertilizing, do it sometime in the next 2 weeks, and then again mid October.

We usually spray mid september as there is minimal new weed growth beyond this point and use liquid. Any time in september the plants are taking in nutrient and they will croak just fine. If you are able to locate some Lesco store and get some Momentum which is a broad spectrum herbicide that will take out not only the dandelion, but fox tail and most of the other [PoorWordUsage] that grows in the summer as well. (All but the quack and crab grass)

Other wise hire a service to spray it with the good stuff. I dont have much faith in that weed b gone stuff. I'm sure it works, but after using the commercial stuff, there isn't any comparison.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
