    9 out of 10 times I am thatching Bermuda out here. Fescue and bluegrass might need to be done every 10 years or so if the clippings are bagged when mowed as they should be

  7. interesting.

    i really want to move to San Diego and i know the majority of turf is Fescue. I was curious if there was much bermuda there. i maintain sports turf here and have an aerator, verticutter, and topdresser and was wondering if they would be any use to me out there...

    I had a nice lawn business in Simi Valley/ Thousand Oaks in the late 1980s early 1990s.

    I deliver sod to a huge portion of central California. The nicest part about delivering further out from the bay area is the sizes of the lawns.
