Just a quick update, all the weeds were killed in this area however some (lawn)grass had survived. I have not had time yet to till the area but plan on putting down some lime, tilling it up, broadcasting some seed and lightly raking it in this Saturday.
Do you feel I still have time for a second weed kill spraying next week, then planting on the 28th?
I appreciate everyone's seed recomendation's but will be buying a small bag of secret spot for this area. It seems to have a good mix of what a deer may want. I want to keep it simple for this first time and I have a store down the street that sells it. In the spring i'll be putting in a perrenial clover.
I also found a decent disk harrow for 40.00. When weight is added will it sink the disks into the ground and will it break up the soil enough to plant or will I need to still rototill the area first again in the spring? I was told that if I rototill this fall, I will not need to till in the spring, all i'll need to do is run this weighted harrow over the soil to break it up enough to plant. Any truth in that???
