How should I kill my lawn to plant seeds in the fall...

15 years ago


Could someone recommed how I should kill my 50' x 30' section of lawn?

I am not sure the type of lawn grass specie it is, but it's common here in New Jersey and gets pretty tall when not cut. If I were to cover it with black plastic, how long would it take for the lawn to die - and will the roots really be dead?

Then, I think I would till the soil over, after its all completely dead.

In the late-fall, I want to cover this entire area in wildflower seeds. Should I till the soil and then plant an anual variety of cover crop or would the dead roots of the (i.e.) oats cause me to have to do more tilling in the fall.
