replace weeds with lawn
My smallish back yard lawn is full of many kinds of weeds, and I'd like to make it pretty.
I have seen mention of an organic lawn FAQ, but can't find it.
Here's what I'm thinking:
1. till about 8 inches deep and rake off any plant material
2. leave for a week so earthworms will go back down
3. use a flame weeder to kill any germinating weeds
4. sow cool season grass mix and spread alfalfa pellets
5. keep moist, etc.
Do the first 3 steps sound right? Will the neighborhood rabbits eat all the alfalfa before it can be used by the grass?
I did spread limestone 2 years ago. I also have plenty of earthworms.
