Planting a New Lawn and Grass Seed

Doc starts the process of installing a new lawn at the farm house. The first step is to change the slope of the land and make sure that it drains well. Then he’ll clean up the yard prior to new soil being brought in. This is step 1 in installing a new lawn.  Sculpting the lawn bed is critical for drainage and will prevent issues in the future.

Doc, do you have a target CEC # for a soil test. My test came back at 19+ and I put down 7 more bags of Humichar, so I expect it to be higher, but am wondering when it is high enough?

Always good stuff. Being a northern guy, I have learned alot. Big question – 2 year old sod Bermuda. It is being invaded by Centipede in spots. I feel some may be coming up through the sod from the soil that is under it. What can I do? I pull what I can but it is non stop. Do I need to dig it out? Kill it? and then re-seed?
