Question about installing new sod over old grass in Georgia
I have a question about installing new sod over old grass during the winter season and the best way to go about this. Here are some of my details of my project:
- I live in Cumming (Atlanta), GA
- My property sits on about 1/2 acre
- Currently my lawn is "hodge-podge" of grasses and I plan to install Centipede grass (no sprinkler system in my yard)
- I need plan to add some 'dirt' over the current grass to fill in the various dips and grooves in my yard - this could be anywhere from 3" to 8" in new dirt (but how much I add may depend on cost of the dirt)
Do I need to spray my current lawn with chemicals, etc before bringing in dirt?
Should I remove the old grass with a Bobcat before bringing in the dirt?
Can the Centipede grass be installed on the new 'dirt' without spraying or removing the old grass?
Thanks in advance!
