Details

Podium for turf growth management reduces the frequency of mowing and the amount of grass clippings by reducing the vertical growth of warm- and cool-season turfgrasses. Other benefits, such as increased turf density, increased color, and increased turf quality, are frequently observed after Podium applications.

Podium can be applied to well-maintained, quality turfgrass areas, such as residential and commercial lawns, golf courses, sod farms, sports fields, cemeteries, and similar areas. Podium is useful in the management of difficult-to-mow areas and can be used to minimize the need for edging turfgrass along sidewalks, curbs, parking lots, driveways, flower beds, fences and around posts, storage sheds, and trees.

    works great

    PODIUM seems to work very well on my Bermuda lawn, slows growth significantly and grass seems to be getting more dense and the green color is much darker.

    Residential Timesaver

    By Paul on 05/29/2017

    I started using it at home to slow down my lawn growth so I wouldn't have to cut as often. I covered 8,000 sq. ft. of Bermuda. I'm in the Atlanta area, and now need to cut once every 4 weeks. My neighbor asked me if I was using a new "service" because my lawn is noticeably thicker and greener than his. After a year of using it, I've no issues (i.e. lawn damage). I am VERY careful about wearing protection when I use it, so no health effects to report either.

    Review of Podium

    By Steve on 08/31/2018

    I have only used one application and thus far it seem to have worked very well on my Centipede lawn, but I have mixed results on my back yard which is St Augustine. I plan to spray my front yard again within a couple of weeks.

Q
How many square feet should Podium cover?

I'm spraying bermuda fence lines in oklahoma using a 4gallon battery back pack sprayer . If I'm reading the label correctly every oz should cover 2k square feet? Correct?

A

The rates for Podium will vary depending on the type of Bermuda you’re treating.  The rates are 0.20-0.75 ounces per 1000 square feet, so it would treat between 171,000 and 640,000 sq. ft.  Please refer to the product label for your specific use rate.
