Hi All,

My ex-tenant's dog trashed the front yard of my Cheyenne rental (I'm in the Avenues).

Anyhow, the quote I received for new sod is more than double the pet security deposit. Now I'm thinking of rototilling + add top soil + re-seed. Hydroseed is another option.

What type of seed is recommended for this climate? Also, are there any specific places in Cheyenne that stocks good quality grass seed?

thx!!

MandK

Pure Bluegrass Seed, should be available at Grant's or Riverbend nurseries.

Do not use the national brand seed blends from the box stores, they are "one-size fits all" blends that are not appropriate for the climate/soil/growing season here.

You'll need to contact Cheyenne BOPU for a permit to water the new lawn (either sod or seeded) to get it established. Will take approx 3 weeks in a typical Cheyenne summer ahead, watering 3 times daily. You will need to be watching the soil for drying out in the seedbed area; must keep moist and have water down into the root zone to encourage the seeds to send down the roots.

If you are going to roto-till, Cheyenne BOPU will have some guidelines for you about the depth, soil quality, amendments, and so forth to approve the watering permit. Suggest that you amend with Bone Meal for slow release phosphorus, too.

Plant seed firmly in good soil contact with the seedbed, then cover loosely with a layer of straw for top cover.

thanks!!! THat is doable.

I may also research Hydroseed. It seems easier that re-seed.
Anyone, feel free to PM if you know of a company in the area. thx!
