Starting From Scratch—Planting a New Lawn
You may have moved into a new construction home with dirt for a front yard or you may have a lawn suffering from acute soil compaction, rampant weed problems, heavy thatch, or nutrient and organic matter deficiencies. In either case, it is time to plant a new lawn.
There are several ways you can plant a new lawn: seed, sprigs or plugs, or sod. You can also hire a professional to spray a mixture of seeds, mulch, water and nutrients in a process called hydroseeding.
