Hi, another desert rat has moved back to Texas. We have been in Arizona for the last 18 years. I was a grower with Martori Farms the Kandy label.Move to Brownsboro, thats between Athen and Tyler on Hwy.31 I'm trying a one acre market garden. Having to learn the Texas way again. Had to ask someone what was falling from the sky, but by June I knew what rain was. Tough summer growing as I am on bottom land. Hope to learn alot and have some fun visting. Danbar

Welcome. :D Where are you from?

Here are a couple of tips I found. You may want to check out
http://www.dirtdoctor.com/forum/viewfor ... 10b9fdf011 as well! :wink:

From http://www.dirtdoctor.com/dallasnews.php?id=34

Q. I am a recent convert to the natural way. In your literature, you talk about getting the weeds out before you add compost, green sand, etc. If I just scrape off the weeds, is that enough? Will they still reproduce from the roots? Or will that individual plant come back if I don’t get all the roots? – F.L., Allen, TX

A. Bermuda is the main weed that will continue to return if not removed but even its roots remain. Grasses can only regrow from the stems. Bermuda’s stems are above ground (stolons) and below ground (rhizomes)...

and from http://www.dirtdoctor.com/dallasnews.ph ... et_theme=1

Question: We just had buffalo grass sod installed. Our landscape person said to water it daily for two months for it to become established. After two weeks, however, it appears fairly well established, and I am concerned that I may be overwatering it. Can you tell me the best care and watering for this lawn?

R.I., Dallas


Answer: You're smarter than the landscape guy. Once any grass, but especially buffalo, roots and starts to grow, it needs much less than daily watering. Buffalo grass rarely needs more than one good soaking every two weeks after it starts growing. When it is established, watering once a month is enough.
