Reno checklist

1746 Views 17 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  nclawnguy
I am getting ready to do a light seed on my back yard Reno this weekend. Here is a list of steps I will take. Please chime in if you see something I am missing or should think twice on.

1) Finish Grade as good as possible
2) Roll to compact to help see low or high spots
3) Grade rake area to loosen up soil, drop my VIP 3 way PRG, drop Scott's or equivalent starter fertilizer,
4) Roll again
5) Apply Tenacity at 5-8oz per ac rate to prevent unwanted species during establishing
6) Water
7) Set my Rachio to water 5 times a day for about 3-5 minutes per run to keep moist.

I agree with SNOWBOB on the addition of peat.

You can use Scott's starter with mesotrione if you want to skip liquid tenacity. Doing so will save some time, and, in my opinion, granular is safer with respect to application rate.
