This is probably the sort of thing thats been asked a thousand times but I have no idea what I'm looking for
we moved into a house with a lovely huge pond, however now we have our first child and shes trying to walk, the pond had to go. :(
the lawn was lumpy, weedy and generally pants so we decided to take it all up, rotorvate it all and lay new seed. unfortunately we took the lawn off, rotorvated it all, put some food down then the rain came, so did Autumn, winter etc. we never got the seed down and now the "lawn" is just a wild meadow of weeds and grass that is hard to remove, especially with an 11 month wanting attention.
Do I have to take all the weeds out and rotorvate it all again, or can I just rotorvate it and stick some turf on top? I need some top soil to level out the hole where the pond was but may just level it out and see how lower it is.
final question, anybody in Barnsley that actually likes gardening and wants to spend an afternoon away from their family helping us get it sorted?
