advice on lawn renovation
I have a small lawn in the front bordered on three sides by flower beds an on the fourth by a sidewalk. I recently bought the house and must assume the has not been fed in a while. The lawn itself is on very slight but noticeable slope. Here is the problem close inspection of the lawn reveals there is no grass to speak of in the lawn just various weeds and weed-like grasses. I attempted to dig out some of the larger weeds and was left with holes throughout.
Here is my plan rototill the entire lawn, rake out the the weeds,cover the lawn with composted manure and compost, then wait until early spring to throw down new seed. During the interim I can keep a wary eye out for any weeds that migh want to invade. I will be able to feed the area and get the soil tested so I can get a better handle on what I am working with.
What do you guys think of this (very) preliminary plan
