|The hardest part was removing the dead grass and weeds.|
I used a hoe for this part and then I tilled up the area and raked it level.
|I added some coarse vermiculite to improve the moisture retention.|
|Then I added some peat moss to also help with moisture retention.|
|Then I topped it off with some compost.|
|Then I tilled everything together with the existing sand.|
|Then I spread some Bahia grass seed.|
|I covered the seed with a light layer of additional compost and then topped with hay.|
|Finally I watered in the reseeded area.|
Hopefully my neighbors will not mind too much that I will have a hay front yard for several weeks.
