Pre-M/Lesco Setting / Bermuda control
I have a few questions, I've had TruGreen for the past two years and have found them to be subpar and as per multiple suggestions on here will attempt to DIY. My yard is Tall Fescue and I'm at the border of 6b/7a
I went ahead and got the Lesco Spring/Summer products as recommended in other posts
I have a Scott's EdgeGuard Mini http://www.scotts.com/smg/goprod/turf-builder-edgeguard-mini-fertilizer-spreader/prod10280087/ as a broadcast spreader
1) The Lesco Pre-M (15-0-0 w/0.21% Dimension http://www.kellysolutions.com/VA/showproductinfo.asp?aud=12&product_name=LESCO+DIMENSION+0.21%25+PLUS+FERTILIZER+15-0-0+%28097201%29&epa_id=10404-87 ) says 1.96lb/1000sf how do I convert that to Scott's settings. Their site http://www.lebsea.com/forms/SpreaderSettingSearch.aspx doesn't refer to the specific product I have
2) I have bermuda growing in patches all over and have bought Ornamec to use on it. I was told to wait till mid-may to june (when it gets hot and the bermuda is growing to apply the Ornamec). I read it needs to be applied spring/fall although the Lesco rep told me to use it every few weeks throughout the summer. Which is accurate? Also how badly does Ornamec damage fescue , in the sense of waiting till the fall so I have a usable yard vs bare/dead patches all over
3) I read here that Grub control should be applied when I see issues, how do I figure out if I have a problem?
Thanks a bunch :)
