that your grocer observes proper

eggs per season, it can easily be
seen that one breeding place left
available in a community, can be
responsible for a tremendous
horde of flies."

Secret pals were revealed and I ment; one for 2,4-D and one for j
I other purposes.
j Experiments to date have es- J
| tablished that 2, 4-D is not harm-'
| ful to persons or animals, a point
| to be considered by those who
| have children and pets that play
| on the lawn.
I The soil#should be raked severe-
ly or cultivated with a hand disc
I or spiker to loosen surface soil,
j At the same time a good fertilizer,
J iime and organic matter should
! be added as needed.
Then seeding, sodding, or sprig-
j giag may be done, depending on
I the type of grass to be used and
i the rapidity of cover desired. Be-
| cause of its relative high cost,
j sodding is recommended only
| when there is need for rapid com-
| pletion of the job.
i Hand sowing of seed is usually
I the most satisfactory method of
| securing a complete and uniform
coverage on a small lawn. The
j seed my be diluted by mixing it
| >\ith soil or fertilizer. It should be
j divided into two lots. One lot
j should be broadcast while walking
lengthwise or the area and the
j other lot should be sown while
i walking at right angles to the di-
! reciion of the first sowing. The
j good should be covered lightly by j
' r.sking. Light rolling will press j
t the seed gently into the soil where !
it will be encouraged to germinate
in the shortest length of time. Sod !
sprigs should also be rolled. I
If the, ground is bare, each 1,000
s iuare feet on slopes could be i
spread vvitn a bale of hay or straw j
to reduce erosion, conserve mois- I
lure, and facilitate establishment.
It is seldom necessary to demove |
j the mulch. Speciai types of net-
! ting also may be purchased to pro- I
j ;ecl new seeaings.
i New seedings of sod or sprigs |
j may be complete failures unless I
adequate moisture is available j
j during the period of establish- j
J ment. Watering need only be light j
! but it must be frequent enough to 1
j avoid drying of surface soil where ,
the new tender rootlets are gain- j
ing a foothold. Watering is a good
maintenance practice but t h e j
ground should be soaked at inter-1
vals when the grass begins to suf- j
fer from droughth. Water just of- i
ten enough to keep plants alive.
Light sprinkling every day en- j
courages shallow root systems and j
helps crab grass more than it does '
the permanent grass so does more j
harm than good.
Mow as soon as there is enough j
growth with a sharp, properly ad-
justed mower. Height of mowing j
depends on the dominant species |
of grass in the lawn. Bent grass j
should be mowed to l/t inch or
less. The Zoysias, Bermuda, Car-
pet, Centipede and St. Augustine
should be cut at ^ or 1 inch. Ken-
tucky bluegrass, gama, buffalo,
and crested wheatgrass should be
cut V/i inches or higher.
