    Do you have a shade tolerant grass?

    edit: Just realized this thread was somewhat resurrected from back in May

    Even shade grass needs some sun.

    Sounds like you have really dark and really damp areas.
    Those are tough.

    Dimension is good.

    Dallis grass is a pain.

    Seed is a pain in the ass. Does it ever actually grow, or do you just put it out?

    My experience with seeding = feeding the birds.

    For sure. The only selective herbicide that really works for dallis is no longer allowed for residential use.

    I’ve got a quart of it in the garage.

    You can still buy it, and they are too busy following the commercial applicators to go snooping around people’s houses.

    You gotta keep the seed moist.

    My problem is we always get a big rain after I put it out and it washes away.

    Got out last night and put down some fertilizer pre emergent combo.

    19-0-6 with Dimension.
