This is what can happen when you plant roses in a lot of good soil.

I applied a dilute solution of RU to my zoysia during dormancy as an experiment to eliminate poa annua because that stuff was greening up in January here in Calif. It killed the zoysia also and left me with brown, uneven turf splotches that have now taken a full year to restore to evenness with the rest of the lawn. Looked bad and I learned my lesson. Dormant does not mean you can use RU on it.

Thanks we are busy handling those little side landscape jobs that could have done 3 months ago. Why do regular customers wait so late for getting estimates for side jobs. it is now closing in on 90F.

Wow 90 it will be month and a half before we have those temps. I've only flown over texas before, the landscaping buisiness seems alittle different there than here in pa. But you seem to being doing very well there.
