HELP! I need some advice. I recently purchased a home that is on 1 acre of land. I have attached a picture of the backyard to this post for you to see the contour of the land. It's basically flat. The yard is terrible. The lawn is very bumpy. I haven't needed to mow the lawn yet, but I anticipate a very bumpy ride when I do. Also, there are tons of weeds and other non-grass plants growing. I even have mushrooms and moss growing in my lawn. Anyway, I have two ideas of handling the situation. I wanted to ask which one you might do. 1. Work with what ya got I was thinking of calling True Green or Scott's to come out and spray for weeds. I have received a quote from Scott's at a little over $100 per visit. They would like to come 6 times per year and anticipate they will have my weed problem under control after 2 years. That's about $1200 to get rid of the weeds. For some reason True Green won't come out to give me a quote. I've called them twice now. Maybe they have come out and they are too scared. As for the bumpiness, I could rent a roller from Home Depot to roll over my yard. I would also do a core aeration twice a year. Hopefully the plugs will disintegrate and fill in the divits: smoothing out the lawn over a period of time. 2. Starting over I haven't looked into this solution yet, but here goes. I would have a landscape company come out a turn/till the yard. My wife and I could spend the next week raking the dirt free of rocks, stones, and whatever. Then we could purchase some of that grass netting stuff that I see being used every once in a while by our DOT to grow new grass. I have no idea how much any of the things that I mentioned would cost. I wish I could give you an idea of how bumpy and weedy the yard really is. The attached picture doesn't give you more than just a small glimpse of the lawn problems. By the way, the bare spots seen in the picture were from an old sand volleyball court that the previous owner didn't want anymore. He must've taken a portion of the sand away and let the rest fill up with weeds. I don't really want to break the bank on this. What do you think you would do in a situation like I have?
