Progress on bluegrass conversion in the park

In Shooks Run Park, between Kiowa and Boulder, City Parks has completed work on renovating areas where junipers were removed and modifying irrigation system to accommodate native grass.
Work begins this week on the remaining grass conversion steps:
·         August – Apply two applications of glyphosate 2 weeks apart
·         Late August  – Seed  & first phase of establishment
·         August-October – Establishment
The conversion from bluegrass to native grass means the grass will need less water and less mowing–a more sustainable solution to ground cover in the park.
