How well I know the answer! Since it's lawn now, strip the sod now and pile it in a corner. Let that become the beginnings of many years of compost. Then till it in whichever way you with, by spade or machine. Having been an established lawn for X number of years, the soil will have been compacted by foot traffic. Tilling will bring up long-dormant seeds and most of them will germinate yet this summer. Eliminate them this fall and you'll not be bothered by many weeds next year.JV said:Hi All!
I am closing on my first house at the end of July. The entire yard is grass at this point. What is the best way to kill all the vegetation, so I don't have to deal with the grass next spring? Thanks!
