Hello All, We've recently moved into a new house on about 1/3 acre lot in Durham, NC. The lawn looks to be about 50% grass, 40% weeds, 10% bare spots. I plan to renovate this fall, and I wanted to see what you pros think of my plan. Here goes: 1. August 01: Get soil sample and send off for testing 2. August 08: Apply selective herbicide to kill weeds 3. August 15: Recieve soil test results, amend soil as recommended 4. 1st Weekend of September: Planning to make 2 passes with power rake to remove thatch and scarify to soil a bit, them remove clippings from lawn. After that I will aerate with plug aerator. Next top dress with a good compost and level and low spots. Then I will overseed and rake in with the back of a rake. 5. Next 3 Weeks: Water twice a day, and hopefully see some growth Let me all know what you think of my plan, and if I have forgotten or messed anything up. I'm not sure what type of seed I'm going to use, thinking of tall fescue just because I like the look of it, but if you all have other advice, I'm all ears. Also, what type of watering set-up would you guys recommend. I only have one spigot on the outside of the house, and would like to avoid moving sprinklers 5 times a day. Thanks in advance for all your help!
