I'm thinking I'd like to plant peanut grass (aka perennial peanut?) on a newly cleared lot, instead of lawn. Does anyone have experience with seeding it in. Should I put down black cinder first? Any tips appreciated.

I have just begun my peanut grass, so far so good. Mine is in black compacted cinder, but seems to do better in the spots where there is more soil.

Did you start from seed or rhizome?

Seed here, about 1 seed per sq. ft - probably about 70-80% germination in about a week.

I got mine online from Hancock Seed, but there may be other sources.
