The strategy of a turf conversion is to get the population of desirable grass plants much higher than the undesirable plants so that the undesirable plants can be eliminated without affecting playability.
We have successfully changed those population percentages in our favor, but now we will be very busy working to eliminate those undesirable plants that are regenerating from seed that is in the soil. We are a long way from being finished with the turf conversion project.
Broad leaf weeds coming back around tree wells are being sprayed with herbicides.
This thin area in an approach has been reseeded and will be thin for opening and will not be fully grown in until next spring.
Poa annua growing back into areas that were slow to grow. These areas will be treated chemically to manage this grass.
The turf conversion is more difficult for me right now because it is not as straight forward as it was at the beginning. There are many variables involved in successfully killing the undesirable plants and keeping the tender new grass from being harmed than adding sand, and seed at the beginning.
