I have recently moved in a new house that has been empty for a whil and the previous owners totally aused the garden. It's full o brambles, weeds and the lawn is a mess.
It's really patchy, is full of dandilion type weeds, looks like someon lit a fire on it at some stage, had sand on it ...a real mess.
I have got rid of the litter, rocks and sand and let it green up an grow as much as I can bear and this weekend I mowed it for the firs time.
It's looking a lot better but it really is full of weeds. I started t dig them up but it's making the lawn look even more patchy.
Is "feed and weed" the answer. Is it best to feel the pain - dig al the weeds out and let it repair it's self?
Returfing is out of the question really as we are on a tight budget an the lawn is a big area, but I want it looking half decent (I'm no bothered about perfection) so my young daughter can play out there whe the sun comes back.
Any advice would be great
