Two NAUGATUCK DAILY-NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. Naugatuck Lawns That Are Brown, Still Alive, State Experts Declare Postmaster Is Third Vice-Pres. Of State Chapter Most Of Them Can Be Brought Back To Normal With Attention, Water Xcw Haven, Sept, M—With yards and grounds in almost every Connecticut neighborhood exhibiting brown, parched lawns after this mire, TOO to 200 pounds. A very satisfactory combination consists Of lawn feYtillzer 20 to 30 pounds and dried manure 100 pounds. -Poor lawns which are the result of insufficient top soil (less than •I inches) must be rebuilt with good loam.

Although the honu'ownui 1 muy think chal his !fiv.-n couldn't possibly look more cleiul, It's very prnb:ible thru this isn't actually lln- Griias is pretty hardy stuff. Most lawns .will come back to r.-.jrniiil. given ti little nlten- tinn uml aufficienl water. If. however, at'tcr the ground hii.i received n. good .soaking, tin- j lawn still remiiins dry mid yellow, no iinumnt of effort will bring it buck to life. In these fuses, ru- sceding is. of t-ourse, the only answer. If Ihe soil is sini.sf.'ictory mid the lawn hus always gi-jwn w.-ll in normal seasons, roughing thi- .sin-face of the ground and sowing grass seed is all that is noces- sury. Seeding should be clone this month and tli« sooner the better. Lawns which were patchy or showed poor growth in years of niii-miil rainfall will need special at!enf:-jn. This condition may be the result of thin soil, low fertility or excess acidity, to mention the tli rec most common catisos. The Soil* Department of Ihe Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station In New Haven maintains a soil testing service for Connecticut residents who do r.-jt know what is wrung wilh their soil. Acidity may be corrected by ap away. Replace the oil topsoil, preferably with the grass side down and then built up to grade with good new loam. If lime is needed, it should bo added ot this point together with organic matter in the form of peat moss, rotted manure, comj.osc, native peat or muck or digested sewage sludge. Use four bales of peat moss on 30 bushels of any of the other materials to 1000 square feet. Then add the commercial fertilizer and work all of these materials into the soil. Finally level and smooth, loll, and sow the seed which should be scratched in or rolled lightly. One method which works very well is to proceed as above but temporarily withhold the final top inch of loam. Add most of the I'ime and fertilizer and all -->f the organic matter and work into the soil, then smooth and roll. 1C it is dry, wet it down thoroughly. Finally add the lust inch of loam, apply the rest of the lime and fertilizer, scratch it 'in, smooth, and so-.v tho seed. Rolling is absolutely necessary both before and ai'ter seeding if the soil is dry and loose. If, however, it is quite moist and especially if it is heavy, use. u light roll or and go over it only once. The procedure mentioned in Ihe pre- Postmaster Prank T.
