Here is the situation. I have 2 acers that grows nothing but weeds as a lawn for the most part. There are a few patches of bermuda from where we use to have horses and it seams to do ok but I am not a huge fan of it other than the fact it is a nice green.
I am looking to get this 2 acers into shape slowly but steadily.
We added about a 5200 sq garden and this weekend we put up a portable greenhouse What I would like to do is start small with this lawns (I don't want to invest hundreds in seeds to have it fail.
The area I want to try is shaded in the morning and full sun in the afternoon it is approximatley 20ft x 50ft.
The soil is a sandy mixture and drains extremly fast. I need a hardy drought resistant variety I am on the boarder line of 6a/6b zone with in 5 miles. location is missouri. I would also like this grass to with stand High traffic (Got grandbabies). So here are my questions
1. Good variety to attempt.
2. When to plant new seed
3. How many punds of seed for an area the size mentioned
4 how often to water.
5. any other tips
if this works out well we will expand the area a little each fall and spring till we are where we need to be needless to say watering 2 acers all at once would be a nightmare
Ps. Lots of what the call Goats head weeds in yard (thorny little buggers that hurt bare feet.
