GRASS

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO ASK A QUESTION AS IT RELATES TO GRASS ERADICATION. MY LANDSCAPER TREATED MY FRONT LAWN ON FEBRUARY 24, 2014 WITH FERTILIZATION WITH CRABGRASS PRE-EMERGENT. THE FOLLOWING MONTH, MARCH, 2014, MY ENTIRE LAWN HAD NO MORE GRASS EXCEPT FOR CLUMPS OF WEEDS AND WHAT APPEARS TO BE CRABGRASS. I HAD BERMUDAGRASS EVER SINCE I LIVED IN MY HOUSE IN 2001 AND I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM. NO SOIL COMPACTION, NO IRRIGATION PROBLEM AND NO DRAINAGE PROBLEM. THE SOIL SOAKED THE RAINWATER. I NEVER AERATED NOR RE-SEEDED BECAUSE MY LAWN WAS IN SATISFACTORY SHAPE. DID THIS LANDSCAPER USE A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE BY MISTAKE OR A CONTACT HERBICIDE OR A SYSTEMIC HERBICIDE. IF HE USED A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE WHY DIDN'T THE WEEDS AND CRABGRASS DIE? I KNOW THAT POST-EMERGENT IS BOTH A SELECTIVE AND NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE AND THAT PRE-EMERGENT IS SELECTIVE. I ALSO KNOW THAT A CONTACT HERBICIDE KILLS ONLY THE GREEN TISSUES ( GRASS) ABOVE THE SOIL AND THAT SYSTEMIC A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE MOVES WITHIN THE PLANT FROM THE POINT OF APPLICATION. MY QUESTION IS THIS. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A POST-EMERGENT CONTACT HERBICIDE WAS SPRAYED ON MY LAWN THAT KILLED MY GRASS ABOVE THE SOIL AND DIDN'T KILL SEEDS GERMINATING BELOW THE SOIL. I BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A STRONG PROBABILITY THAT A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE WAS USED BY MISTAKE WHETHER IT WAS CONTACT OR SYSTEMIC. I WILL TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR KIND REPLY. PLEASE REPLY. I WILL BE VERY THANKFUL. THANK YOU. SINCERELY, JEROME WILSON 2016 HARVEST RED ROAD INDIAN TRAIL, NC 28079

Oakland Holly and Grass

Is there a product to kill the grass around our Oakland Holly without damaging the tree? Also, is there a product to help the soul around the Oakland Holly where the dogs pee?

Fresh cut hay

Is it ok to feed a Cushing's/IR horse freshly cut hay? The barn where I board just got some freshly cut hay. It is still green. It laid in the field for a few days though. I always soak the hay anyway. Can he eat this hay?
Thank you.

A Bent Pine Tree

Is it too late to fix my Leland pine tree? After overcoming resistance from my wife I cut off the lower limbs of our pine tree and it revealed the base was growing closer to horizontal than vertical. I straitened the tree so the top of the trunk is vertical. Should I instead try to get the lower trunk to be vertical which would then make the top of the tree look like it is not vertical? Would that give the tree a better chance of growing correctly?

The tree trunk is about 4 inches thick directly below and above the bend area. The tree is about 10 feet tall and Iis supposed to grow to about 30-40 feet tall. Am I better off removing this tree and planting a new one or can this tree be saved with reasonable growth expectations?

Mini lemon cypress turning brown

I’ve had my two mini cypress trees for about 2 years now. And in the last 2 months they are turn brown. Do you know what it is? They get all day sun but some shade in the late afternoon from other surrounding trees. They are located on the northeast side of my house.
