Hello all! I have a customer with a somewhat steep graded front lawn with very dry turf. This will be my first major front lawn overhaul, so any suggestions will be appreciated! Most grass is dead and will need to be raked out and re-seeded. My question is, how would you handle 're-growing' a lawn on a very dry lot. The soil looks to be nice, no clay or rock, so i'm thinking no top soil is needed. (Probabally the size of a three car garage). I was thinking somewhere along these lines: 1. Rake out entire lawn, dispose of dead grass. 2. Aerate, till soil and rip it up to prepare for seeding. 3. Spread fertilizer (any suggestions? I will be heading to LESCO) 4. Seed (Landscaper's or sun/shade mix) 5. Spread Straw on lawn (Is this necessary???) 6. Have customer water lawn on a regular basis until new growth emerges. That's the game plan I was thinking about going with. Feel free to critique! Thanks!
