I am looking to redo my lawn at my house this fall and was looking for some advice. A little background on the lawn if it will help. I bought the house in Dec of 2003 and the builder did a half a$$ job of grading so I do have a few spots that hold water. I will be adding topsoil to those areas before I start. The builder put down seed and fertilizer in April of 2004 and everything came up great then quickly died off by June of last year. I performed a soil test last fall and applied lime, 5-10-5 fertilizer (recommended by the soil test) and then used a slit seeder to reseed a portion of the lawn, then followed that with a spreader. Grass came in pretty good, but not very thick. Everything was looking good this spring but with not much rain the lawn has quickly turned brown and is looking ugly. The part of the lawn that was undisturbed by the builder or myself is very green and looks good, although there appears to be a lot of Bermuda in this area. The soil in the yard is also very sandy, which is proving to be diffucult. The soil test last year stated I should apply the lime at 105 lbs/1000 sq ft and fert at 50 lbs/1000 sq ft. I put down about 600lbs of 5-10-5 and around 800 lbs of lime last fall and an additional 400-500lbs early spring. My plan this year is to have another soil test performed, then apply the lime I need in mid August, followed by the fertilizer around the beginning of September, then in mid September renting the slit seeder again and seeding the entire lawn, then going back over it with the spreader and overseeding at a heavy rate. The total square footage is around 60,000 sq ft. Does this sound like a good plan or should I try something else? Sorry for the long post but I wanted to give as much info as possible.
