Yukon Bermuda Problem
So I completely scrapped our fescue lawn for Yukon Bermuda. I killed off everything late spring and regraded a few areas and Harley Raked the whole yard. I also added a top quality topsoil. So 32 days ago I was able to get the back yard completed and the following weekend (25 days ago) I was able to get the front yard finished . Just shy of 3/4 acre. Not 2 hours of completing the front yard we got a torrential downpour that lasted less than 30 minutes. So here is my dilema. I waited to see what completely washed away and what didn't. So I have decent coverage in the back yard as it was showing small signs of germination. There still are some large bare spots. My front yard is a different story as I have very little coverage. What coverage I do have is at the bottom of the yard where it all was washed to. My yard is slightly sloped. My plan is to throw seed in all of the bare areas and cover the whole yard with a thin layer of sand. This would help the new seed germinate and fill in the erosion ruts were the loosened soil and new topsoil was washed away. I also hope this will help the already established Yukon to spread. My questions are that should I apply a fertilizer now for the established portions? Would that affect the new seed? Does my plan listed above sound like the proper plan? Do remember that I only have 8 to 10 weeks left before I am in danger of the first frost if that matters. I also have your normal weeds growing that my guess is that I am going to have to deal with them if I am going to reseed. I welcome any and all advice as time is of the essence.
