Answer: You might be surprised how the lawn will green up if it is watered regularly. That's the easiest and most inexpensive way to bring it back to life. Or, you can tear it all out and start anew. Rototilling can be labor intensive, but can result in a beautiful lawn. So if you want to invest time and money in renovating the backyard , rototilling, raking out the debris, leveling the area, seeding it and then putting it on a regular watering, feeding and mowing schedule are the steps to take. Grass seeds usually sprout in 7-10 days if kept well watered and can usually survive foot traffic about 4 weeks after planting. Good luck in your new home!
