How to ensure bedroom sliding windows can open fully

We're looking into this as well. We've just moved into a brand new rental and the upstairs windows only open 85mm. We've emailed the property manager to ask if they…

I'm looking into this as well. We just moved into a brand new rental and all of the upstairs windows only open 85mm max. As far as I read, I…

Empire Zoysia in Melb?

I just wanted to chime in. I have Sapphire Buffalo in the front and EZ out back. When the seed heads are up on the SB, it's not pleasant to…

Yup, I remember that thread as well. That's why I bought it...Fu recommended it.
And our soil was not some "commonly sold" commercial garbage but from one of the suppliers recommended…

I got the soil from one of the recommended places in WA. So, I guess if they've been adding poultry manure, then we'd better give others a heads up.
Bentonite and…

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it bounced back. Makes me wish I'd put EZ out front as well.

I'll post a series of photos and an update.
The EZ:

January 9th.

Today, February 12th. Yes, needs a mow. There's a couple of dry spots, but it seems to be…

That's great news. Our EZ is almost back to normal as well...looks green and lush again. Our Sapphire is still struggling. Lots of regrowth, but still has dead and yellow…

Retic works fine.
I assume the lawn is getting enough because the times we have dug down after watering, it is saturated.
Already used two wetting agents.
It's actually looking even better than…

Ugh. It's crazy hot out there.

December 31. It actually got WORSE than this...it spread to the centre of the lawn and so about 2/3 of the lawn went yellow…

I hear you on this too. I have neighbors who did no prep, use chemical commercial fertilizers, and they have no fungal issues. It doesn't seem fair does it?

Okay, Rizzo...hang in there.
I'm in the other thread with fungal issues and our lawns and my EZ looks a LOT better now.

Yeah, ours spread too...I don't think we were quick enough with the mancozeb.
The bright side is the original dead patches are about 80% new growth now and recovered (well, in…

I'd say keep an eye on it to see if it spreads. I suppose if it's not starting to come back in a couple of weeks, then top dressing would…

Ours went through its first winter here and looked really, really awful but came back just fine in the spring. It had greened up noticeably by October. I can't say…

We have sapphire buffalo in the front yard and EZ in the back. The EZ seems more resistant to weeds and comes back relatively quickly (as my thread on fungus…

Anyone got Sapphire Buffalo in Melbourne northern suburbs

I'm not in Melbourne, but Perth. I have Sapphire Buffalo in the front yard and my neighbor right next to me has SWB.
Honestly, there's not a huge difference. The blade…

We dosed it with mancozeb over the weekend. I think it is fungal, just my intuition. Some parts of the lawn are not affected at all. And some of the…

I did part of that already (so it seems I'm on the right track). I've raked and we did seasol and no night watering. Aerated two weeks ago.

Damping off disease? I've only started watering the extra days when it turned yellow.
I'd have thought that our lawns here in Perth are usually more excessively dry than soggy...hmm...

No, no leaking petrol.

We put our lawn in back in March. We did all of Fu's prep. And no, we don't have any dogs.
The front is Sapphire Buffalo, the back in Empire Zoysia.

Like Fu said, as long as you do the prep and continue to look after the soil it won't matter much which one you get.
