I recently own a piece of land (800m²) which used to be full of grass. Lately the grass is being overgrown by nettles. Right now I'm at the point where almost all the grass is replaced by nettles.
My plan is to get back a grass field.
From the research I've done it seems that the soil is too rich and therefor the nettles will dominate over the grass. The grass on the field has been mown for years and left behind on the field. This is the reason why the soil is so rich I believe.
So in order to make the soil poor again I could keep op mowning the field and removing the grass/nettles. But I was wondering if there's also a faster way to get my soil poor?
I prefer not to plow the ground.
