Well, I finally was able to get some good photos of the difference in turf with and without Primo Maxx. In the photos below the area to the left has been treated with Priom Maxx, the right is maintained my another very large LCO here.

As you can see from the photo the treated grass is MUCH thicker, stands straight, and looks much better. The non-treated grass in laying down and much thinner, the second photo shows how much thinner.

FYI, this lawn is one of my best customers and I treated his lawn for free, about 7k area. He came out yesterday raving about the treatment and stated for me to continue the apps as needed and send him the bill from now on.

Pardon the clippings, the other LCO mowed today and blew the clipping on my side. Hope this helps some of you in your decission making.

Nice job Ray. I like that ball drop test. I think I'll be "borrowing" that one from you!

Have at it. It's the best way I can think to show the difference. I could drop change on my lawn but it would not show up on the other. :D

All the materials say 4-6 weeks, so far so good.

I have tried it on a few properties in the last week to ten days and have gotten the same results as kirby ....very favorable

I have noticed significant color change in the treated areas.....much darker green

What could one expect, when using primo, as far as turf diseases?

Made my first application on Zoysia today, we did a small test section and we shall see. I'll post photos in a few weeks.

Pacific, my understanding is that most problems that are there will continue, if you had leaf spot last year there is a chance you will have it again. I read that it could help preven some due to using less water and having healther turf but I can't find that info right now.

I posted this in the main forum but since this is about side-by-side compairsions I thought I would add this here also. The photo below is the same spot as photoed at the top of the thread. We had 2 weeks with no rain and 90+ temps, as you can se the lawn with Primo survived much better than the non-treated section.

Could Primo be used this time of year, here in St. Louis (transition Zone) with good effects?
