    I'm new to this site, and think it's great. I have started a new tractor mowing company here in the Houston, Tx area. I have a customer who needs me to brush hog his 2 acres, kill all the weeds, and plant grass. My queston is how do I kill the weeds once I mow his pasture? Can I use something like Scott's fertilizer?

    there are different products that will better meet your specific needs. Contact a local farm fertilizer retailer for information on what is available in your area.

    You want to do something like this.

    Brush hog/mow it as low as possible.
    Spray Round-up (or no-name brand equivalent).
    Wait 2-3 weeks.
    Harley Rake/Pulverize/Soil Condition/till and level.
    Fertilize with starter fertilizer

    Big tip - the amount of effort you put into making the ground smooth and level will pay off big time in the future by allowing you to mow faster and more comfortably.
