These are areas in which using regular grass is poorly established, doesn't grow well and is not irrigated... AR is able to fill up such an area with a dense mat of strongly growing grass that germinates easily and survives quite well under less than ideal conditions... mulch mowing that stuff should give the soil adequate cover to keep microbial activity going along into the soil...
Next year I Dormant seed and follow up with a Spring overseed after that... think about those roots filling up the soil then decaying back down... the soil building is what I'm shooting for in this procedure, because the regular grasses are already there,,, just doing so poorly that it looks bad...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
