PREPARATION


Prepare the Soil

The better prepared your soil is, the better your turf will perform.

1st -  Get rid of any existing weeds and grasses, using a weed and grass killer.  Follow package directions.

2nd - Rototill soil so that you have a minimum of 2 inches of good, loose top soil (4" to 6" is ideal).

3rd - Soil test your lawn.  See your area County Extension agent for information on how to test your lawn. You may need to add lime, peat or compost as recommended.

4th - Rake and smooth soil, removing rocks, roots and large clods. Keep the grade 1" below sidewalks, driveway, etc.
