Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster...zone 6a.
I reno'd my lawn last September. It turned out near perfect. But as all things, timing was not in my favor and my Landscaper had to push our work off until mid October, meaning my work was 50% undone.
The Landscaper made a strip of 6' wide and 140' long, he ended up leveling it and backfilling it with fresh top soil/compost. I asked him, and another couple of landscaping stores if I should throw tttf/kbg seed down, or if I should do annual rye just to avoid wasting money & having the soil wash out- I'm on a very hilly lot. They all agreed annual rye.
I scalped in november, dormant seeded after scarifying, rake it clean, put peat, fert, etc....watered religiously....and now all I have is annual.
How do I remove this lime green bane of my existence?
Let it die from heat after a good scalp? But won't it seed due to the seed heads that fell this month?
Nuke the strip?
