I am in a rental unit that had an elderly couple as tenants for many years. The outside has been utterly neglected. We have already discovered that the property managers are worse than useless for taking action on these sorts of issues.
Last year I made some attempt to remediate the lawn with a fertilizer/grass seed combination to little improvement.
This year we've been out already and managed to rake up a lot of fresh, thriving moss and want to tackle the problem early in the year.
Our soil is a red, clay and the yard has multiple slopes, primarily east and south. The grass is pretty ratty, but I will not consider laying sod as I am willing to exert effort but not substantial monetary outlay to correct this as best I can.
Can someone suggest a plan of attack?
