Weeds and Fire Ants
I sowed grass in my backyard for creating a lawn this year but due to watering restrictions, the grass could not spread properly. Now, its an untidy, piece of land with grass in uneven patches and lots of weeds.
I am thinking of starting all over again as below :
1) Using some chemical to kill all and clear the land.
2) Planting grass patches instead of sowing as earlier. (to yield quicker, denser carpet in less time & less weeds).
3) Keeping 1/4 of backyard in a corner for children playing using an artificial turf (fire ants are a hazard in the grass here in summers).
4) I would prefer the soft carpet of Xoysia instead of the Bermuda that I sowed earlier.
Please share your experiences if you faced similar problem during lawn creation. Also need your opinion on the type of grass (Xoysia or Bermuda).
Thnx and Regards.
