I have already done a search and did not find a answer to my question. I will be doing a install of 3000 sq ft. The exsisting lawn is crap and full of weeds, but I can not use round up to kill it because the house is right on the water and the town would have fit if they saw me spraying at waters edge.Should I use a bobcat and scrape up the exsisting lawn and amend the soil before laying new sod. Also I was thinking of charging $1.00 per sq ft. I get get sod for .29 cents per sq ft delivered. Any input would be great thanks.
