Hey CAPE , if you can share your thoughts on a good product I really appreciate it .  Thinking about applying something like to my front lawn.  

FYI ., my front lawn has really turned brown, missed all the rain you have received. Lower half has gone dormant.  Going to be a tough summer rain wise I think. 

I will let you know when I figure it out lol.

Don't tell me we're getting yet another cutoff low around the 4th of july weekend because I'll be in west virginia four wheeling and I better not get drenched

I’m heading up to Jonjon land for five days. I’ll drink in any weather, but I’d like to get some good hiking in at the Sods.

Ortho used to have a liquid named 2787, might be off on the numbers though lol. Just look for the active ingredient but I know you know that

It is a fungus that has the spiderweb look on the grass with help from the dew. Powdery mildew. 2787 however used to be good for about two weeks.

Talk to a landscape company. Let a professional advise you. Products from big box stores like Lowes aren’t likely to be of much help.

I used a spray one year, but I’ve also used a spreader and granular Scott’s DiseaseEx and Bayer’s Fungus Control with good results. The spray was also Bayer’s but I can’t remember if it worked any more quickly. All worked well though.

I took the advice of @WinterWxLuvr and went to a local AG place that sells blends of grass seed specifically for the soils of the eastern shore. The dude there was very knowledgeable, and he recommended spraying. Based on my description, his recommendation for a product was Fung-onil, so I went with that. I might get it sprayed tonight, as it seems unlikely it will actually rain lol.

LOL.  I get off work at 5:00 and went out to get the grass cut with recycling coming tomorrow.  I check radar and there's nothing anywhere close so good to go for my 45-minute job.  After two strips I hear a thundercrack and look up at the sunny sky.  Shrug.  A minute later I hear a LOUD crack and look at radar and see this new cell forming right over top of me.  Within another couple minute it's raining hard with multiple bolts.  Now it's raining in sheets, with close CTG bolts, and still sunny skies to the NW.  So much for that job! *reaches in the fridge for a beer.*

Ended and sun already coming out.  About 1.0 fell in less than 15 minutes.  This pic does not give it justice, but the yard behind us floods BAD when it rains this hard.  The people on the right put in a huuuuge stone patio that takes up all but a couple feet from their back property line.  Also the people a couple houses further up cemented their entire back yard.  This makes the drainage a nightmare for the houses behind me.  That stuff can't be compliant with codes.

I just sprayed it. A shiit ton lol. A lot more brown out there than I thought. If its a fungus, I should see some results. Intuitively I have always thought(and still think) this is more of an indication that the tree roots are winning out and starving the grass of nutrients. We shall see.

In other news, I saw a legit tarantula in the grass while I was spraying. Biggest spider I have ever seen here, and there are plenty of big wolf spiders. This thing was textured/bumpy and ugly af. I should have taken a picture, but my first instinct was to stomp on that mother fu**ker, lol.

Second day in a row with a good afternoon thunderstorm after the long dry spell.  Looks like this one may make it to Poolz’ yard.

Be careful with claims of redemption, we may get another Hazel or Hurricane of 1821, I would prefer the 1899 Blizzard.

 

I know it’s probably another incoming disaster...who knows maybe we get lucky

storms missed a few miles to the east yesterday, and now they're missing a few miles to the west today. on the other hand, I don't want flooding rains or severe wx.

Yea...1899 would be cool to experience.  I believe temps were 0 to 10 during the snow . PD2 is the only blizzard that came close .

I can see distant lightning from the storms in C MD looks like from here in Springfield, VA

It's likely either the storms out north of Leesburg that are in MD or the storms west of Middleburg in extreme western Loudoun County

You might have seen the storms over top of me last night. Was a pretty decent storm.
