Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ------Tuesday, July 11, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 August is the best time to seed new lawns Late May lo early June is the Ideal lime for seeding a in Alberta and although August is better, this month doesn't lend itself to enough time for eoedbed preparation. Also, weeds are more preval- ent during the month of August. The best way to get control of the weeds is to keep the area well cultivated during the summer. There are herbicides on the market which will kill the broad-leafed weeds. in the case of quackgrass, continually digging it o u t is recommended for small patch- es. If the whole area is infest- ed, it may be necessary to use a soil sterilant. There are a number on the market which sterilize the soil for about three months. A good seedbed that has well packed and levelled is the most impprlant preliminary step in making a good lawn. If it is too shallow or Ihe soil too 1 .vy, it will be very difficult lo establish a deep-rooted turf lhat will withstand hard wear and dry conditions.

Calgary, Alberla Phone 243-5551 OR "THE OLIVER DEALER" NEAREST YOU According lo Ihe head of the Alberta department of .agricul- ture's horticul turat branch, P. D. McCalla, a good seedbed must be at least four to six inches deep and the soil must be of good quality and free of lumps. Since the soil in many re- gions of this province is in- clined to swell when wet and to bake when dry, anyone slart- ing a new lawn would be wise to mix it with organic mailer Native peal is excellent for this purpose, but to be of any value, it must be thoroughly mixed with the soil. The addition of 10 to 14 per cent peal moss lo the seedbed is about right. If more is add- ed, the lurf is likely to become spongy. Because Western Canadian soils are often deficient in soil phosphates, a nitrogen fertiliz- er containing a high percentage of phosphorous should be ap- plied just prior lo seeding the lawn. The best way lo get even cov- erage is to divide Ihe seed mix- ture into Iwo equal parts and broadcast one part in a north- soulh direclion and the other from an east-west direction. A light raking in one direction only is all thai is needed to cover Ihe seed. Although it is not essential to roll the area after it has been seeded, the use of a light roll- er often gives more rapid and uniform germination. Laying burlap or chopped straw over the area also ensures belter germination. The burlap must be taken up before the seedlings are far advanced or it will uproot them when it is removed. A newly seeded lawn must be carefully and evenly TABER The meeting was called to order with Sandra Lchto lead- ing the pledge. Insurance for calves should be p.aid soon.
