What to do with the lawn @
Our lawn is quite weed free and we feed it two or three times per year. It also has all the thatch raked out at least once per year. The problem is that it doesn't grow very well at all even following this treatment and we're now wondering whether we should take it all up and start again?
We think the problem goes back 30 years when the house was built and we are convinced that the soil under the lawn was not prepared at all before it was seeded. We have found quite a lot of builders rubble just under the surface in the adjoining flower beds. Under most of the grass the soil is always rock hard and not made any better because the soil is clay. It is almost impossible to get a fork into it to get air and moisture into it. Does anyone have any suggestions please?
