Hello I have recently purchased a house that was unkempt for about 4 years, so needless to say, the lawn had a forest.
The first picture was taken in late summer.
The second picture was taken in the fall.
Both pics are from the back porch of my house. (same vantage point)
As you can see, well, you can't
Demolition was quite fun.. The property had no electric (thieves) so I had to use the battery from the van along with a power inverter to use a recip. saw and radio. I used a gas weed trimmer with a blade as well.
Most of the brush and trees are gone now , but there is black soil, probably caused by dead leaves and such decomposing, over everything in the yard including the sidewalk.
My question is: What the heck can I do to restore this former jungle to a nice plush lawn? If anything
Could I just spread some seed around, then cover with hay? Would that work?
PS there is a sidewalk down the center of the yard. (30' wide X 130' long)
Any suggestions would be immensely appreciated!
