Don't spray too fine of a mist. The smaller deoplets stay airborn longer. READ INSTRUCTIONS THOROGHLY! If OTC chems, don't stress too much (typically formulated for non-literate users).

we're 5hrs north of you, there is a lot of ag. spraying here and the enforcement of application law is a serious reality.

buffer zones, drift rules and notice of intent violations aren't taken lightly.

on the residential side i still hear stories of the lucky and unlucky, those caught and those not.

Modesto is a much larger area so i can imagine that the law of averages prevail but i'm also sure that the powers that be have quota's that are filled to justify their existence.

i have the brown card and my brother in law has the silver card.

he won't let anyone but himself spray on the ranch, the liability worries him to no end.

LOL I remember mixing paraquat and liquid dish soap in a back pack sprayer with a leaky hose connection, wearing shorts and a tanktop. Maybe that's why my foot looks like Longfellow Deeds.

BTW, planted 16 - 12ft palms in small back yard in Sac's Del Web community (lined sidewalk like boxwoods). I thought HO was kidding when he asked if they were "level"... Love to have a few words with that nursery "architect" mind you.

I get the whole "dont spray without license" thing. (Herb only in AZ, fert is a go for any Joe!)

I was curious as to anyone else's tell-tale sign of SOMETHING, when they drive up on a property.

Second for me... rust stains on the sidewalk or curb at bottom of turf area.

matt, the most important here are rock jacks. if you see rock jacks on the way to a jobsite you can figure long days, big equipment, underground water and importing soils.

short grass, long grass is an indication of winter access, red tracks on the roads too.

Yellowing; brown spots; dead spots; spots on grass blades; crab grass; woody limbs & leaves on ornamentals covered with sooty mould, wild onion/garlic. Wait I have some pictures; The last one is my favorite.

One of the residents is the irrigation specialist.
