I am Embarassed!! Are my patch jobs done for??

8 posts in this topic

I used some of the new Scotts EZ Seed patch product on several bare spots from last summer wear and tear. That stuff is spendy!!

Anyways, in my haste to get a couple of other projects done, I didn't pay attention to the fertilizer I used to go over the rest of the lawn with. After I put everything away, and got the other projects done, I realized I spread fertilizer with crabgrass preventer over everything!!

Are my patch jobs done for?? Yes, I went over the patches, as I fertilized the rest of the lawn. I figure they're done before they even got a chance, or does it have a chance?? I think I already know.

Classic example of "haste makes waste."

Most likely, yes.

Unless..... your crabgrass preventer isn't any good.

Crabgrass preventer works by not allowing any grass to germinate, so your new seed won't germinate either.

Pretty much what I figured.

On the bright side it is a Scotts product which doesn't work half the time so who knows......

You say you just applied a crabgrass preventive agent? If so, I'm wondering if you might be a little early. Typically we apply that on the golf course when the lilacs bloom. But, I too, am afraid you probably NRTSed out your seed application

Looks like Someone is looking out for me. My grass seed is growing great. Lesson learned, and won't be forgotten, but without all the "pain" I was expecting.

Sounds like you need a different pre-em. Your seed shouldn't have come up. You're gonna see the same germination of crabgrass this year as the grass that you put down

That's fine. I didn't mean to put down a "pre-em". I had a couple bags in the shed, and picked up (didn't pay attention) the wrong one, and went. I guess my seeds were supposed to come up. (dispite my stupidity). lol.

    •   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

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • 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?
