Help Establishing Lawn
Hey guys I need a little help. I am trying to get a lawn established for myself. I bought 5 acres last year that was clear cut many years ago and had a lot of growth on it when I bought it-sweetgums, small pines and oaks, briars and brush. I have placed my mobile home on the land and have been bush hogging the yard. I have a lot of small stumps a buddy of mine is going to push up with a dozer in late August early September. My plan is to go with rye grass for the winter because it will take a while to get the stumps up, fill in holes and grade the land like I want it. I plan on laying a couple of pallets of sod around the trailer soon. I want to get Bermuda established next spring by using seed. Questions: This fall should I mow it as low as possible, spray it, disk it, grade it and then spread rye grass? Of course I will get a soil sample, fertilize and cover seed as directed.
Soil is clay sand mix
Briars, poison ivy, some bermuda and some type of weeds that resemble cotton
