Empire and Diamond Zoysia Renovations

Discussion in 'Florida Lawn Care Forum' started by Florida Gardener, Apr 28, 2013.

  1. Just did 2 renovations this week. 1 on Empire Zoysia and 1 on Diamond Zoysia.

    Here's the Empire:

    I Verticut and scalped with my counter-rotating blade then sanded. Pics aren't the best, but hopefully you get the idea.

    After Verticutting:

    After Scalping:

    After Sanding:

    Diamond:
    This was first Verticut, then Aerated, then cut with my Tru-cut, then lightly sanded. You can't even see the sand in the Zoysia from my pic as it was lightly topdressed and pushbroomed very well

    I will post pics this week to show the progress. Going to probably be Aerating and Topdressing a Seville Lawn soon as well as a Palmetto Lawn. I'll post pics of those as they happen.

    Nice work. Probably unapppreciated by most on here. I love when people want something really nice are willing to pay for its install and upkeep.

    Nice. This is how it should be. That Landscape blade is great for the stuff between the stepping stones. I normally use the blade on the whole lawn. From then on, it is kept short enough not to thatch back up with a reel mower.

    The yards I service are too big to top dress, at least for me, and its not popular at all in my aera.

    Excellent work FG.

    If that were my grass id have putting cups in it.

    i do have one customer that will be scalping and sanding about 20,000 of bermuda. That will take 15 tons of sand at about $100+ per ton. Otherwise, I notice that people get real tight if their lawn is over 2,000 sq ft.

  9. Thanks a lot guys. I should have taken a pic of a Seville lawn that we Aerated and Topdressed what a huge difference that made....here's a few updated pics of the Empire yard...it is after 5 days and it is already starting to fill in. I put down a tiny bit of 24-0-11 after verticutting and before sandibg. I put down malorgonite today and we had a great rain so that will def help.
