    Here is my photos of my lawn. Sprayed at 8oz. per 1K sq. feet.

    I also sprayed at 2oz. per 1K & 4oz. per 1K with similar results.

    The 1K sq. feet sprayed at 8oz. is closest up in the shot. The other areas sprayed hasent been photographed yet.

    As you can see its not really a dark green as I had thought. Its more of a greasy brown.

    Honestly these photos arent doing justice! Its making the lawn look greasy blackish green....but really it has that tint of lets say MUD TRACKS? mud tracks when you run through a wet lawn if you know what im speaking of. Maybe I can get a closer up picture.

    Iron sprayed will stain the grass for a few weeks, until it's mowed off. At the same time the grass will turn a darker green, by the time the stain is gone the grass will be a dark green.

    Normal yes, just hope (and make sure) you do not get it on the paved areas, fences, houses, etc...

    Sure is late to be putting down triple 14 on fescue.
