Hi everybody, my wife and I just moved into our first house. The backyard needs some help. I dont really know where to start. Let me list the things that are going on. The back yard is a big square with a rock retaining wall at the back. There is a full sprinkler system that works great installed. Back in the right corner the previous owners had a raised garden that is two railroad ties high. My wife and I want to remove this. They also had an above ground pool. Where that used to be is dirt that has weeds and clover growing in it now. There are nice spots in the yard but there are also a lot of spotty areas where you can see dirt and or the grass is very thin. I want to remove the raised garden and get the whole yard cover with nice thick full grass. I want a very basic beautiful square yard. Can anybody please tell me the step to getting this done. I dont have the money to use sod either. Thanks for your help.
