I couldnít keep ahead of the invasive weeds and crabgrass we have this year not to mention it was really dry most of the summer. The lawn died off early in the summer and never came back. I was trying to do it without chemicals but I lost that battle so I decided to start over. It also gave me the chance to level the lawn as it had deteriorated over the years.
First stage was to remove the weeds and grade. I used my 1025r and my 5 ft box blade. I have to be careful as the electric and fiber are buried along the woodline and they also run along the road. But I will till in some compost and the left over soil next.
I am going to seed after that and have a slit seeder that does a good job of spreading seed.
