bringing back bermuda

Post by Ms Cue » June 25th, 2020, 9:31 am

My tenants killed my lawn!

I've brought it back to life many times but it's never been this bad. First of all, they failed to water/maintain the lawn after insisting on taking responsibility for it. Then recently put down sand and there are now 3 storage sheds in the backyard! They have until Friday to get rid of everything on the lawn (including the sand) and I'm taking over a tool to aerate the ground. Aeration plus lots of water has worked for me in the past but this time it will take quite a while.

Does anyone have any recommendations on what else I can do, should I be doing something different, products I can buy to help the process along, etc? This is the last time I'll let a tenant assume responsibility for my landscaping!

Thank you.

wow! there is grass under there? any idea how long it has been covered up? If it has been that was all season, I don't think you'll get it back.

It's probably too late but I would have scraped that sand out. Or vacuumed it out with a (rented) shop vac. Sand works to level a yard with existing roots and soil structure, but you don't have that. Putting bermuda into that bumpy surface is going to be worse than leaving it alone.
