Help with lawn (San Antonio, Texas)
Ok, so I guess my first attempt to post didn't work.
So I bought a house a year ago in San Antonio. They put in Bermuda SOD by the square. Do to the drought we had last year, the grass didn't really grow in that great and I have gaps in my yard from where the squares are and True Green proved to be pretty much worthless in killing the weeds.
Here are my questions:
1) Does anyone recommend a weed killer, or pre-emergent to use for the common weeds in San Antonio?
2) I am looking into buying about 10-15 yards of dirt, top soil, or sand. My builder recommended that I at least drop some sand across the yard to help fill in the gaps and it helps absorb moisture.
2a) Is this true?
2b) Would any recommend for or against any type of soil, dirt, sand, compost mixture etc to lay across my yard to help even it out a little and to fill in gaps?
I will keep my Bermuda and probably lay some seed down before I get the filler just to let it grow in again.
He also recommended in the winter that I plant winter rye grass.
Thank you in advance for any answers or advice.
