Nematodes and Overseeding

Posted by cookie8 zone 5 ON (My Page) on

My lawn is a mess. There are so many grubs and the topsoil is very poor. I want to bring in some garden soil to topdress and do this every year for the next few. Problem is we have a ton of grubs. I want to do a nematode application next week as it will be perfect timing for our area plus rain is forecasted. Can I topdress, overseed and do nematodes at the same time? What order would I do first topdressing or nematodes? Thanks.

There shouldn't be any issues with that. I'd do the nematodes first to get them close to the grubs, then topdress. As the grubs migrate upward for air, they'll have to pass through that nematode layer...

Perfect. Thanks.
