I have a great account but I am having difficulty with it. It is a 43,000 square foot, estate lawn. I am located up here in the NW. It was all installed in sod this spring. Unfortunately the idiot sod installers (not me) just rolled out the sod over mostly course sand and some fine sand. There is virtually no soil base for the sod. It was fine until the weather turned hot and dry. Now the lawn is developing brown spots and not holding the moisture. My immediate remedy is to do a core aeration (done) and topdress with Eko-Compost topdressing. The problem is I can't figure how to spread the topdressing efficiantly without the $8K piece of machinery that the golf courses have. I can't even find a push type drop spreader that will handle the course topdressing. Does anybody have some suggestions as to what will work? I am willing to invest $500-$1000 in a piece of equipment (did I mention it's a great acct.). Although the less money I have to invest the better. Perhaps there is another solution instead of topdressing? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Firebrand Lawn Maint.
