HELP! Need advice on lawn change
We have a sall "lawn" (actually a lumpy bumpy muddy area with grass on it!) about 3m X 3m. Next year we'd like to quarter it, and have 2 quarters wildflower-meadowy, and the other 2 as clover lawn. I've asked people I know for advice, and I'm getting mixed reports. Some are saying I should dig the area up now, turning the grass upside-down and let it rot under a mat to enrich the soil, and others are saying that I should throw the grass away as the last thing I need is rich soil. Can anyone help?
