I dont do this often, however I need some help. Im trying to help a friend out with (this mess another landscaper) left! How would you guys deal with this, my two questions are A. how should i get rid of all this clover (the green stuff is clover) and B. how do you suggest getting grass replanted? There is already top soil on the lawn. ?

Buy the looks i guessing its a new house. When they back filled they did not bother to put straw down. The rain splashes the dirt and in turn stains the brick. I dont think it can be washed off. I put straw down by a new house before for the same reason.

IF tilling is further than you want to go, take a soil test, then power rake it and overseed.
