What the hell does this have to do with lawn and garden? Maybe someone
should start a news group for morons. Then you'd have a place to go with
people you can relate to.

Default Help with redoing the lawn (sod on bad, rocky ground)

Thanks Timothy, and others, for responses. I'm learning.

I decided to use 'some' chemicals before redoing the lawn. I feel like I
missed the boat for seeding (in terms of timing), since it's getting warm
here in New England.

For sodding, can it be done in June, maybe even July and be ok?

Now, this is my plan of action
1. Rototill the existing lawn
2. Cover it up (~1000 ft^2) with tarp to kill the weeds (and whatever
else was growing with weeds) - ~2 weeks? 3. Put in some new top soil
4. Apply weed killer chemicals
5. Re-sod
6. Water
7. Water more
...

Step 1 can be done in a half day, 3,4,5 can be done in another day after
tarp comes off. Sound about right?


If I was hired to do the job I would:
1 spray the whole lawn area with finale.
2 wait 2/ 3 days for the finale to kick in.
3 spread 10+ yards of topsoil and lay sod.
4 Fertilize with 16-16-16 , water and hand you a bill 80)

As far as tarps and the like go... It takes quite a while for tarping to
kill off perennial weeds. Time is something that you do not have so
spraying will be your only true option. Dandy lions and other perennial
weeds can and most likly will work their way up through the sod over time.
I personally wouldn't chance it and would take the extra effort to do it
right the first time.

Btw, what they charging you for sod out there..?
Good luck to ya.......

How can some one guarantee such a thing I am open to suggestons, so
far this guy moparholic has been able to hide who he really is while
harassing two hams at there homes. the big question is how can you
guarantee that any address he gives is a real one and not a fake, he
has been hiding for a long time I doubt he will come out in the open
because he is a geniune chicken. The offer still stands moparholic or
whoever you are, I will meet you on your front lawn and you can have
the first swing free.


And your name is?



LOL!!! Yeah it's ok for you to threaten to send emails to
my work, family, friends. It's ok for you to threaten to call my
house and tell my wife lies, call my work and do the same thing,
yeah, kettle-pot..................... Same rhetoric for the past 4 years
from you know who.

Makes sense. I'll just spray either Finale (can't find it?) or
Weed-B-Gone and wait a week or so, cover it with top soil, and sod
over it.

For sod, they're charging somewhere between $3-4 for 9 sq. ft
(6'x1.5'). So, for ~1400 sq. ft. I'm looking at (my initial guess was
off), the sod alone would be ~$600. Not sure how much top soil would
cost to cover the area.

Does anyone know where to get top soil in Massachusetts?
