Now I've got that song stuck in my head again.
That's OK, they don't write 'em like this anymore.

I must say this whole grow a lawn so the taxpayers can pay you to tear it out is really stupid, and going along with this makes your sanity doubtfull.

Want to borrow my Santa Suite next July?

A couple of things I've noticed:

The first thing is that there are some bare spots where I've noticed some gravel. That gravel could be too hot for grass to sprout and grow.

Our sprinkler system works OK. It has several zones which are sprayed, one at a time. I had run the sprinklers, ten minutes at a time. After awhile, I thought this is too much water. So I knocked it down to five minutes, then to two minutes and that was just about right. But I may have to kick it up to three minutes for summertime.

Another thought is that not all grasses are created equal. Buffalo grass may take awhile to become established, but the roots may go as deep as four feet for them to find water. You might have to talk to a somebody who knows better what all the ins and outs are in getting such a grass going.

Just a few thoughts.

Going along with it??
What were my options Einstein?
What a silly reason to bump up this thread.
Pointless post.

This thread is getting dumber by the month but if you're still trying to take adavantage of this program, now's the time to go get the cheapest annual ryegrass (the main (if not the only) ingredient fix-a-patch type products) you can find and water it multiple times a day to keep it moist then gradually water longer and longer as needed to keep it alive. Then get the city out as quickly as possible to acknowledge that it's alive before you end up spending more on water and your time than it's worth for the incentive. You couldn't pay me $1.50 a sf, or whatever it was, to try to start a lawn by seed in the desert. Just not worth the time and money wasted on water.
