• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

    The only real fungal problem I have here with turf in SE Texas is brown patch. I alternate between Heritage and Prostar for that. Take All Patch is becoming more common. I came up with what works on that and 2 years later MegaLawn is doing the same thing. I came up with my own process for...

    Thanks for the reply. I am better with turf (I better be, huh?) than horticulture. I appreciate the advice and will be grateful if anyone else wants to school me further. Thanks

    I like to alternate my shrub app chems throughout the year. I see acephate is gonna be hard to find....especially in those 1/3 lb packets. I hear there will be/have been label changes? I'll use bifenthrin, cyfluthrin and acephate at times. I'll also use banner, bayleton and eagle...

  12. got our 1st nutcase today

    If I had that call, I would sympathize with them, insist they go to their vet......and get the Dr to put in writing that "lawn chems" caused this. It won't happen.

    I have been hearing $8-$12 at MegaLawn. Less than I made 15 yrs ago there! My buddy called me today and was telling me that he came out into their warehouse on a recent AM to leave and there were TWO...not one...but TWO trucks overflowing. LOL

  15. Saying Goodbye To An Old Friend

    Well sometimes you just have to cut the chord. Kinda like an employee that just doesn't give a crap anymore. Ran into my local Lesco for a few bags of 46-0-0. I almost had a Fred Sanford heart attack when he said "$29.44 a bag." $29.44???? I pull out my phone call BWI (a farther drive)...

    Try westheffer.com next time you need one. They do crack over time. Or the threads will screw up. Keep a spare.
