“I have almost finished raking the leaves and the grass is just beginning to be visible above the surface. I have my roller filled with water. I can discourage the grass a little if I roll a few times (do you think so?). I can spread MgCl2 (magnesium chloride) – will that help discourage new grass? And finally, after adding MgCl2 and new topsoil and putting down the lines, I can PLAY. I actually think playing is a good way to discourage new grass.
I could also use a chemical product, probably before I do anything else.
What should I use to kill the new grass as it tries to emerge?
I know you use “Roundup” to control grass at the Lake.
How friendly is it to the environment? To animals (dogs, cats)?
I will appreciate any thoughts you may have for my court at our summer home. Kind of an SOS! Thanks.”
Any court-opening veterans have advice for Nick on his court? (So I can play on it when I get up there!!!).
