This week Iím doing a broadcast dormant seeding on a rougher low maintenance property. Basically a semi rural type location. The owner is very green minded, doesnít mind weeds and has zero intention to irrigate....unless it is near his garden area. I steered him towards pasture grass to make it easier. I mow his weed patch every 2-3 weeks and he is one of my best paying customers for time spent.
This will be preceded by a reciprocating aeration to vertically till and intentionally open up the soil. I expect the frost heave to work well with this help. The plugs per square foot will be 3-4 times as high as a single pass with a rolling tine aerator. I will be doing a single pass with this machine.
