I have just moved into a new home. The yard needs work. I have a decent stand of grass in the front yard but the back yard is another issue. The former owner had dogs fenced in the back yard. the dog had dug holes all over the yard. Since moving in last week, I have filled the holes with top soil. What do I have to do to start grass growing. What about seed, fertilizer, lime, etc. Please give me some insight on what I will have to do. I live 60 miles west of Knoxville Tn. Thanks for your help!
