What is NPP?
gritty... not the normal clay we see around here. Much lighter in color and just crumbled, resembled a thicker sand I guess?
And the worms... we have been getting very HEAVY rains, not as much lately, so I figured all the worms came out, moved around a little and got caught on the pavement... I haven't seen so many worms regularly though as I have now on my driveway...
NPP = Natural Plant Protector, I use it mainly for fungal issues as I was told it worked great in that area. Apparently there are other benefits to it as well...
How deep is this? Take a 12" core if you can and take a pic of it.
Clay on a slope... Did your sample have any moisture in it?
Sun reflecting off the house... Add some straw and make bricks.
In looking at the picture, obviously it is hard to tell what is going on. However, the option of extending the hosta out isn't a bad one. I would say that if you are going to continue with turf, till up the whole area, adding compost....roughly 1 yard looks like it will add enough to that space, regrade and seed in the fall.
Just my .02.
The lawn looks pretty good to me especially in the background up that slope. You can see where your seed came up along the hostas.
If you aren't doing a soil sample, I would suggest you reseed again in the fall then power rake the seed into the ground just covering the seed with dirt for good seed to soil contact. Throw some more seed on top and water religiously for 1 month not letting the germinated seed to dry out.
Next spring go back with the power rake and a bag of seed and do the same thing.
The lawn looks pretty weed free did it get sprayed when your seed was put down.
Srry buddy, but I really really don't understand why you try things (shoot a shotgun) while blindfolded...
Get a thorough soil test FIRST...
I'm surprised Kiril hasn't slapped your hand for this yet.
Perfect Square dead spot eh ???
Did the HO put down any mulch lately ????
I'm gonna say of the hostas are doing great its a shade issue. I also notice a strip of shade that matches length and angle of the affected area.
