Like many things, I put off spraying the bermuda, I'll blame it on the hot dry summer. Actually, the herbicide Killz-All works best when the plants are actively growing, which the were not a month ago. With some moisture, the bermuda has come to life and I have decided to convert our lawn at our 13th Street store to Gard'N-Wise fescue blend.
We sprayed the lawn today (September 7th) with Hi-Yield Killz-All. Instead of only spraying the bermuda, we chose to completely kill off the existing turf and plant the latest varieties recommended by Kansas State University research.

Lawn almost dead September 12, 2011You know how when you spray something and you start asking yourself after a couple of days, "Is that stuff working" Not that I talk to myself, but I was wondering this weekend if the Killz-All was working. I thought that maybe it was starting to turn a little bit yellow. I was just getting impatient. Whenever I am helping someone with an over-seeding project, I normally tell them to wait a week to see much of the grass starting to die. Well today, it happened. I came back from lunch, and the lawn is close to scalping and seeding. I am getting a great kill in only 5 days. Hopefully we can get on with the project later this week, stay tuned.
