    Don't get too hung up on comparing other bermuda lawns for green up. Different types and hybrids, soil temps, sun exposure times, etc. By mid to late May, everything will even out.

    SS is right. It can vary.
    Take a critical look and listen carefully to his comments.
    He may be comparing his lawn to Bricktown stadium, or a fescue lawn--or perhaps--he likes the look of a lawn that had annual rye overseeding last fall. Or perennial rye.

    The customer hasnt said anything. I noticed it when I was there and it got me worried I killed a lawn. Im thinking the lawn itself isnt in the best shape and it will just need time.

    So just guessing it's a common aka wild Bermuda? From your description it's been an unmaintained POS

    Don't expect too much of your applications, 2 apps over the winter not gonna make a miracle happen. It's not "Miracle Juice".

    Golden rule of app biz.
    Your not gonna make chicken salad out of chicken sheet

    Im not expecting 2 apps to do any miracle. I was more worried that the apps killed th yard.

    As long as you didn't load it up with Momentum FX 2 with Triclopyr a couple of times this year, I don't think your chemicals will delay your green up. I made that mistake once.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing what you're doing, just saying you may be expecting something unrealistic
