June 12, 2023: Turf establishment for the most part is completed in all of the milled and overlayed areas. Please observe the following recommendations for maintenance and mowing of restored areas:

  • Do not walk or drive on restored areas until the grass has fully established.
  • Refrain from mowing restored areas until the grass reaches a height of 6 inches. The recommended height to mow restored areas for the first year is 4 inches. Keeping a slightly higher lawn encourages a deeper root system and has better drought resistance.
  • Any additional watering efforts by the property owner is greatly appreciated and helps establish turf quickly.

Mid-July 2023: City staff will conduct turf establishment inspections. The contractor will address any deficient turf establishment later in August when weather conditions are more conducive for turf growth.
