    I have a lawn that needs a renovation, here is what it contains:
    the lawn is full of moss and patchy
    the house in on ledge
    the lawn is like a marsh when it rains out
    there is a huge dip in the lawn where most of the water collects
    once i get all of these problems fixed i will seed or sod but there is no irragation and i'm afraid the customer is going to spend all this money and not water it.

    I have somewhat of an idea of what i'm going to do but i would like to hear some recomendations from all of you.

    Is the lawn very shady? IMO the shade and persistent moisture might have a hand in the moss.

    You'll need to fix the grade problem if it is not draining.

    SOIL ANALYSIS!! Then you'll know what direction to go in.
