Hey all

So the spring reno began this last week and the video is out. I'm gonna make this the official thread for photos/feedback/thoughts on it.

First - yes I know its best to seed in the fall. I tried to do that here and the germination blankets failed. This spot is *prime* curb appeal so I can't have dirt all summer. I do have an irrigation system but I'll be doing manual watering to prevent fungus on the rest of the lawn.

The day after I down normal starter fertilizer over the whole lawn so I didnt show it in that video.

Today I just watered and the peat moss is still holding right to the hill. The tackifier appears to be working well.

Any idea on how long it will take to fill In?, another 1 or 2 seasons. What kind of organic material do you have via a soil test?
I am debating getting an soil test as my lawn is basically sod on yellow clay no top soil. Thanks for all the info you share.

Definitely get a soil test. There is more to lawns than pH level and the test reveals a lot of info if you use LoganLabs.com

As for fill in, I'm not sure to be honest. I'm going to move plugs but I think by fall it should look good.
