I love my winter lawn this year!!! I failed really bad last year so this year we…
- Dethatched the Bermuda with a detaching blade on our mower(very inexpensive from Lowes. Made a huge difference!)
- Used the perennial rye seed(more expensive but according to the garden guy it is worth it because it uses less water and fertilizer)
- Spread with aged cow manure(97 cents a bag at Lowes) and rabbit feed (50 lb. bag at the Stock Shop for 14 dollars).
- Then we NEVER let the seed dry out or puddle! Very important! We watered about 3 or 4 times a day the first week for very short periods of time to keep it moist.
FYI We started this Grass Saturday October 15th and Had a full lush lawn less then 2 weeks later!! Also I kept the kids and Chickens off of it for those 2 weeks:)
