This is Hopeless
These are photographs of our side yard. The lawn here is hopeless... :-( It is a never ending battle to try and keep grass growing here - always has been. So as a fool's errand, I got out a small garden cultivator that I have owned for 30 years, got it started and then attacked some of the bare spots. Not all of them, because there are way too many. Just ones near the driveway. The above photo shows what it looks like after the cultivator chewed down into the soil about 4 or 5 inches.
Then I spread some peat moss on all the cultivated areas. Then I bought some compost, and spread a thin layer of that on top of the peat moss. Then I raked all that together. I added some starter fertilizer, and some grass seed, and lightly raked the seed into the soil, and watered it. So these two photographs show the finished work. Now we wait for the beautiful lawn to appear... As if!
