    At a site today, replacing diaphragm. Classic too much water syndrome here in AZ in Bermuda. Nutsedge. Easy to get, tough to get rid of. Sedgehammer will do the trick, over time. The sedge is the taller, greener, shinier plant, with bermuda underneath and a bit "bluer."


    What is your dead giveaway of something in the landscape, where you are?

    Depends on the customer. If long time, i'll spray, if not I can refer... Not worth the hassle of being fined. I have seen more people spraying, applicating, that can't even tie there shoe without instructions............

    Dead give-away this year has been crabgrass. Indicates lack of water/ coverage. Tall fescue died in June/ July and crabgrass took over, literally. Are you working in PHX or visiting?

    Probably not the response you're looking for, but idiots. HO's, fly by night gardeners, contractors who swear on Orbit products, and laid off laborers who think they know it all (no particular order obviously). They are the cause of their own demise that make me money. Anyone had a HO take a level to a palm tree??? Venting complete

    Here they can actually fine you for fert your neighbor's lawn. They'd have fun enforce it.

    I mean I sprayed some weed spray in my own yard, Ive been asked by people to spray this or that they picked up from where ever and they laugh at me when I tell them I cant. Idk if that applies to otc lowes type sprays or not however not worth poisoning myself over or even worse a kid or someones 3k toy dog.

    As CAGreen mentions here in CA you can't even fert without an applicators license. That includes your employees applying fert or herbicide on your own property.
