    IMG_5681.JPG IMG_5682.JPG applied about 8-10 days ago. Good control on mature crabgrass. Oxalis is getting there, and goose grass and nimblewill are showing promise. Blanket app at full rate. Zero color change on the fescue itself with blanket app last week of August.
    First pic is tenacity at 2 passes on left and escalade ll at 1 pass on right. The leaf is pretty much center line between two. Some discoloration on tenacity with two passes but still acceptable.

    You have to be careful with fine fescues. It can cook it at max rate.

    It will get baked in our heat first. Only tall fescue here. May see some fine in shady areas, but not common. This was first time using though I've had it for a year. Was expecting more white on the fescue. Is just a little loss of color. Not even yellow. Have had worse burn with solitare on zoysia.

    We do 10 or 14 properties each year. Works great. Just don't wait too long to get the second app done. Two years ago through some scheduling issues we were forced to wait 3 weeks to apply the second app. Did not work nearly as well. We did however come back a third time for free on a few of these. Overall it does a really good job on bentgrass and nimblewill/

    What is the coldest temperature can you use Tenacity? I have some creeping Charlie that I need to attack now.
