Well Folks, I am planning on redoing my Lawn both front Lawn, side lawn and back Lawn. Ive been meaning to do it for a while. Long story short bought a new house about 3 years ago but the Lawn was crap, must have been the worst topsoil ever and was uneven...hardly any grass in it, or whatever grass was in it was Field Grass, and the usual Dock Leaves and bare patches. front garden wasnt too bad, but the side garden is the worst just very little growth and seems to be very poor soil or else lack of sunshine.
I attempted to sort it out a cheap way dug out any stones from the lawns, sprayed it with weed killer to get rid of the docks after I got sick of digging them up and even it out as much as possible and reseeding sections. In fairness I did improve it from what it was..it actually looked like a lawn after its been cut, but still the side lawn has issues with growth..
anyway Its still un even in areas and last week I cut it very short and then I realised how uneven it actually is...so I am thinking of digging it up and redoing it again completely in a cheap as fashion as possible. alot of hard labour and as little money as possible. So what I am thinking of doing is to dig it all up in November turn the sod, leave it for a few weeks then chop and hack it.....then even it out. maybe get another layer of top soil and then roll and seed it....anyone got any tips for me before I take such a job on?
