Solving a Lawn Problem in San Diego, California, Part 2

George B, a customer in San Diego, has reported great success with our Enviro-Turf, a low maintenance lawn seed. In the previous post (see below) he talks about his motivation behind the change to Enviro-Turf, and shows pictures of his old lawn.

George also sent us some great pictures of the transformation of his 7,000 sq ft lawn, and explained the steps he took to get rid of the old lawn:

1. Kill old lawn with Roundup, about 3 applications.

2. Wait for lawn to be dry completely

3. Remove dead lawn (by hand to about a depth of 8 to 10 in)

4. Let dead lawn dry

5. Rototill soil and let it dry

6. Remove by hand old grass roots without any soil (I had about 1.5 ton of dead old grass and very little soil)

7. Add about 2" of top soil and rototill soil to about a depth of 6 inches.

8. Rake and final grade

9. Apply "Enviro-Turf Seed"

10. Water as needed to keep the soil moist
