Repairing a badly maintained lawn
We've just moved into a 2 year old house. The lawn is in a pretty bad shape with numerous weeds and a pest problem.
Most of the weeds have been pulled up but what can we do about the leatherjackets / chafer problem? Should we now start re-seeding or would it be better to start again with rolls of turf?
The drainage is not that good in the top right of the garden, and that area gets no direct sunlight. Should we look at not growing grass in that area and put in a border or slabs in that corner?
Out the front are two small patches of lawn about 5ft by 10ft each. These are weed free but have pest problem. When we moved in a few weeks ago both had a reasonable covering of grass, now one of them is totally bare.
