Killing the Grass Handout

In fall 2008 and spring 2009 we held several sessions of our three-part Replace Your Lawn Workshops at Tree of Life Nursery.  If you missed any of the workshops, we will be offering more workshops in Fall of 2009. 

If you need the information about replacing your lawn, please visit the Replacing your Lawn area of our website, where this handout and even more resources have been compiled for your reference.

Below, you can now download the helpful handout from our first session.

Replace your Lawn: Step one – get rid of it! 
This may be more involved than you would expect and the methods to get rid of a lawn are quite varied.  You must identify the type of turf you have, research methods for removal, and then select the method appropriate for the season, your grass type, your work schedule and your budget.  The future success of your new planting will depend on your successful removal of the existing turf.
