I have a low spot in my yard that I want to fill in. It is an 8' diameter spot that is about 4"- 6" lower than the surrounding grass. The grass in this spot it mostly dead from this being a small pond for an extended period of time.
The two options I've seen are 1 - Add an inch at a time and let the grass come through. 2 - Use a sod cutter to remove the grass, add soil, and re lay the sod.
Since there is not much grass option one really won't work. My question is around option 2. If I don't care about the grass is it ok to just cover it or do I have to remove it first? I'd rather not rent a sod cutter if I don't have to.
