RE: Any seeded bermuda I can plant that will patch 419 ? (Follow-Up #1)

I have a yard that I initially seeded with yukon bermuda, then decided to just sod it like a week later. I can clearly notice where the yukon is coming thru. Major differences is color, but I really like the density. Anywho, all I know is all the bermuda experts are going to say is that no seeded bermuda will match your hybrid bermuda. Now all that being said, how many sq ft are we talking about? Im assumin very little bermuda present. If budget's an issue, I would seed with yukon bermuda, I can personally say that it can make a beautifull lawn. There are threads on here on how to renovate.

RE: Thinking about using organic fertilizer (Follow-Up #3)

I wonder where soluble salts come from in a grain? And what amounts were they talking about there?

877 pounds per acre is 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Their high amount is 100 pounds per 1,000. That is enough to coat the ground completely. Nobody in their right mind would use that much in the garden.

15 pounds per 1,000 is a good place to start. 10 pounds might be a better place. If your soil is not biologically ready for the soybean meal, it will get pretty smelly before it does any good. Start with a smaller amount and get the microbes fed first. Then come in with higher amounts. 20 pounds would be good, but use a smaller amount for your first app.

You can apply it any time you want to; however, going into winter you will find it doesn't decompose quickly and can get that aroma again. I would wait until the end of April to late May next spring after the initial flush of new growth is over. That is when the soil is most biologically active and can handle the soy. After that you can use it as often as weekly all through the summer. Or you can use it once in the spring and two times in the fall. The more you use the better your lawn will like you, but you don't have to get freaky about it. I'm just saying you don't have to worry about using it too often.
