We have a couple areas of grass that did not make it from last fall to this spring.
Today once all of the family visitors for the weekend left I decided it was time
to deal with the scared grass.
I burned off the dead grass & weeds with a very large yard torch and then put
down another 20lbs of grass seed. I then drove my tractor over the new grass seed
in order to try to make sure that seed is in direct contact with the dirt. We then
ran the sprinkler for about 10-15 minutes to get everything wet without the water
running off (and forcing the seed to float away.)
