A few people in San Antonio tried plastic grass. They thought (This Is Great). For a short time. No mowing, no fertilizing, no weeding, no watering. Well guess what happened. Seeds blew in and sprouted. Their lovely plastic astro turf changed into a weed patch. It was more work vacuuming than it was mowing.I have about 250 sqft that I want to keep as lawn. However, for years I have tried and have been unable to keep grass growing. I'm considering artificial turf. Am I a bad person?
Yeah Mike, those folk in the US of A can be a bit difficult for the likes of me to understand. They have a different language for startersHi Rick. I think us gardeners here in the UK need to get to know more about, American gardening. Fair do's we answer and comment mainly on the basis of our experience here in the UK. Perhaps an invite to all our friends, around the world. Could we perhaps share more detail in a way that we, can get an overall picture of the situation. Perhaps grass seed mixtures used here, might be a complete waste of time and effort in the US. No offence.
The only thing I remember about poisoned soil was when I was speaking of Medina Inc and how they clean up toxic soils with molasses being a big part of that process. I wonder if weeds will grow in this area. If so, I doubt the soil is poisoned. A comprehensive soil test would answer many questions@Chuck, I wanted to ask about the ground possibly being poisoned. Can you remember another thread that mentioned getting the soil tested? I seem to remember that it was a possibility there?
I just found this link - it`s probably what I tried to remember... https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-ln-exide-what-we-know-20170806-htmlstory.html
