Oakhurst Park II, 9255 Ammons St.
Bluegrass Conversion to Native/Drought Resistant Grasses
There are currently three pilot projects that the Parks Division is working on where we are converting bluegrass areas to native and drought-resistant grasses. The process involves killing areas of bluegrass with a nonselective herbicide (in this case Roundup), mowing the vegetation as close as possible to create a new seed bed and then drilling the new grass seed into the ground. To speed up the germination process, the irrigation system is then used to re-establish the new grass and provide a head start for this conversion. Pilot parks for this conversion process include Kensington, Oakhurst Phase II and England Park.
