My lawn is now an indefinite roundish shape andi would like to make it a well-defined oval shape-do you have a formula that I could use?
I have a large wet area on my lawn and I am currently draining it and this morning after all the rain the trenches seem to be working although i have no pipe or stone in yet.All the grass is dead from water lying on the ground all winter.The problem is the soil is very poor and the tracks left by my ride-on mower were still full of water right next to the drains as the soakage is bad.Will using builders sand fill in these tracks mixed with a little moss peat (sprinkled with grass seed later) or will it just cake into a cement like substance?I was then planning on aerating the soil when i have all done. Regards, Brad
I sowed my lawn last year, 1/2 acre, one side of the lawn grew but the other didnt, the side that did not grow is always quite wet . Is there any thing i can do on a budget to get my lawn going, also is there any plants,shrubs or trees that are really good for soaking up water, my garden was a bog land so its always wet.
where do i start, i'm wanting to relawn my garden. its already part lawned with lots of weeds in, then the other part is just weeds and mud where a large shed covered, my guess was to dig up the surface of the lawn, dig up the weeds, rotivate it, add top soil to level it, then seed.. is there a faster way to do it but still keeping the cost down i.e. hired tools, do i need to dig up the old grass or can i just rotivate it,or am i going around this the wrong way Thanks for any adviceelliot render

Hi Gerry! I have A dog and he has turned the lawn in to a muddy area and now i have no grass because of this.Is there anything i could buy to put down under the grass before i re sow it again?
Hi Gerry,Last summer i laid out my lawn using top soil that was onsite after building the house, but i did not plant any seeds or remove the stones,the lawn is now overgrown with a combination of Grass and Weeds. I want to seed the lawn this year,What steps should i do first.1.Use Round up to kill the existing Grass/weeds when the Grass starts to grow again.2.Remove Dead grasss/weeds3.Remove the stones4.Even out using topsoilThen seed.As you know there is a lot of work involved with this,is the above my only option?Any Advise would be apreciated. Thanks ,Colm
we have just moved into a new build and I have leveled out, de-stoned and weeded the rear garden in preparation for sowing a lawn in the spring time.What is the best way of keeping the prepared site clear of weeds until such time as we sow the lawn once the weather turns in March/April? We are wary of using a weedkiller like roundup in case it prevents the grass growing...
i had a lawn put in didnt turn out right now redoing lawn 1 acre of lawn, killed grass brought in 5 loads of top soil spread in all around, weather turned bad as you having seen grass and weeds growing again is it to late to put in new lawn as i have to plough and rotavate yet please can you help me Thank you
My newly purchased house site sits on a flat square site 90m*90m approx. About 3/4 of this was used as cattle grazing up to 6 weeks ago. I want to start with approx 1/2 acre behind the house to turn it into a lawn. Do I need to kill/spray the grass that is there before I rotovate it. I am a new to creating a lawn and don't really know where to start. I would appreciate any guidance.
I built a new lawn from seed on a sloping site last year and it has done really well. During the last year, as the ground settled, I have some dips in the lawn. I have access to some topsoil and am thinking about trying to fill some of these dips to get the lawn level. Is this a good idea? Is this the right time of year to do it?
I recently saw on a gardening programme "super garden" a machine to remove the top layer of turf / lawn to prepare for ground work. It was not a rotavator........can you help me with what this machine is called. THanks Teri
If I use weedkiller like Roundup how soon can I sow the lawn seed?
We have only shale and builders' rubble in our back garden but want to lay lawn. Would we need topsoil/clay if we want turf/sod which already has about 1" soil backing to take?
