    fry it and start over with some compost and high quality grass seed.

    solarize it, burn out 2, or other natural round up products, or bite the bullet and use round up, then all organic products.

    The stripes came from a hustler. I have never seen a rototiller that big?
    This is a pic from when the grass was in better shape.
    We have not got much of any rain. That is what it looked in May when we had rain and less heat..

    LOL, and that is just the first 1/4 page I am sure. Basically if it is not plastic, metal, or chemicals, you can throw it in. You don't have to have all that stuff that is just an example of items you can add.
