Order from Home Depot getting delivered this afternoon with lawn pest control, Palm fertilizer and gardenia fertilizer. Have some prodiamine left over from February that I need to get down this weekend because it’s already getting hot and will only get hotter.

Round up or vinegar if not embedded in the lawn.

Unfortunately it's mostly in the lawn, so would want to preserve grass.

Nah, they make this stuff you can spray on them and it takes care of everything. Plus the sprinklers shoot them a bit too which cleans them.

Our Rose bush exploding with huge blooms! I get so many compliments on the color too. They are a Peach/Orange/Pink combo.

You know how great it is when you get a surprise? Well take a look at my Spanish Bayonet (yucca/agave family) that we planted when we first built our house back in Fall 2017. It is now blooming with these huge tulip like flowers which I had no clue would happen!

That's mouse ear chickweed. Get something stronger, T-Zone is what I would recommend. Just be careful not to overlap when you spray and do it in the morning with no rain for 24 hours. Don't use any surfactant. Stuff is easy to cause turf burn but is one of the best lawn chems right now and is super cheap. Also don't cut the lawn 2 days before or after spraying. Little bit stronger nitrogen will help with it too. Just whatever you do don't pull it, that causes it to spread pretty quick. Another thing to remember is that it can take up to 3 weeks to see any major difference depending on the chem used.

Hope this helps!

What does everyone recommend for spring grub treatment for the lawn? Come fall I don’t want the raccoons tearing up the backyard again like they did 2 years ago.

The raccoons are most likely going after earthworms. Like I tell my customers, earth worms are their meal and grubs are just the occasional treat. A lot of times grub control isn't needed, you can check with your counties extension office if it's a bad year. I've moved away from those treatments due to the type of chems used, unless it's a bad year. Studies have found the chemicals can last in the soil for over 10 years and are linked as one of the causes of colony collapse in bee hives.

Quick search came up with the name Ďchickweedí.
http://abateaweed.com/weedspage/
More search done and found out this stuff is edible and high in calcium, magnesium and Vitamin B complex amongst other stuff.

Funny you may ask, I researched Ďnon-toxic grub killerí and came up with Nematodes: natural method of getting rid of those suckers without harming the environment. But, whoever selling this stuff must keep them refrigerated otherwise itís useless. Look-up some videos on this stuff. I ordered mine from Amazon. Will report result when I apply it.
