Reno prep. Fungus prevention.

Post by CLT49er »

Going to be putting in larger patio this winter which is going to force/allow me into a reno of the lawn.

Lawn is 2k. I have constantly fought fungus in the lawn, flowers and veg garden. More so than my front lawn. believe my back is very susceptible to fungus due to lack of air flow from the fencing, trees and house.

During reno I am going to sod cut much of back lawn. Roll it to the side and level out that slope by half. Will need to bring in soil. My thinking is bringing in something like a 50/50 topsoil/sand mix to allow quicker draining to help with fungus pressure.

Does that make sense? Ive fought spring dead spot last year and dollar spot this year.
