    So most of the grass is dead after a RoundUp/24D confusion, there is still a few live blades underneath, what do you do? Thinking about hydroseeding, thatching, aerating, mowing, don't know what to do to get the seeds down to the dirt so they can germinate.

    I'm working at a house with a nice big .5 acre yard they have barely any grass to show and the soil is packed solid and some places have so many pebbles it looks more like a small creek bed. I'm thinking it would be best to just add some soil or compost and cultivate the lawn, then do Fescue...

    I'm doing Lawn renovation and I've killed off my existing grass and weeds with herbicide. I'm also installing sprinkler irrigation system cause I didn't think I could water the new seeds twice a day if I do it all by myself. The sprinkler system will be installed in couple of days. I'm planning...

    I'm in the Northern Virginia area. I've recently moved to a new home and the previous owner didn't care much about the lawn. The entire lawn is filed with crabgrass (about 95% weeds). Its a .25 acre lot. I've been told its better to just kill all the weeds with roundup and start from scratch...

    Hi Everyone, I've found a lot of help/advice on these forums and would like to ask a few questions. For the last three years I've tried impact and oscillating sprinklers on the end of my garden hose. My last attempt (over a year ago) was a tripod w/impact head, which I would move to various...

    Hello all. I just joined this site and I'd like to share my 1 acre lawn renovation project. I began about 5 weeks ago and here is the basic timeline up to now. 8/29/10 - My entire yard was about 90% crabgrass and other weeds so I hit it with RoundUp. The concentration I used was 128oz roundup...

    About 8 weeks ago I killed the entire yard (90% weeds) with generic glyphosate. Then about 4 weeks ago I mowed down as low as I could and bagged most of the dead clippings. 2 weeks ago I rented a stand on aerator and went over the lawn twice. This actually worked a lot better than I expected...

    I have a client buying a lawn reno/irrigation for his sons home. At first, he leaned toward resodding. Now wants to know if seeding is an option that may save him money. The soil is typical new development fill here in TN. Very high clay content which is causing the need for the lawn failure...

    So, a friend of the family asked me and two other buddies to "renovate" their lawn. The task consists of replanting new grass and leveling a few small areas that have some unevenness, nothing too bad. The entire area of lawn is 2-3 acres. We thought the best way to do this job, since they...
