Landscaping plan, weeds and grading.


We plan on doing all of our own landscaping except the concrete pad. We have a plan. The weeds are out of control. Would you kill them chemically and start with a clean slate or just destroy them while grading the yard? If I kill them with a weed killer will it affect future plantings or sod?

Grading the yard will not destroy the weeds, they'll just pop up again although it might not be in the same place. Best to chemically kill the weeds. I'm not sure of the time frame but it won't hurt anything after awhile for the dead weeds to be graded or tilled under.

OK. Off to HD for some weed killer concentrate. I'll blast the weeds and wait for the aftermath. Then it's on to grading with a Bobcat, unless others have advise on that also.
