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.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!

    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
