To Turf or To Seed - Knowledgebase Question

London, En
Question by jeremy75

I have recently bought a new flat in London and the lawn is OK, not too great in places. There is a bump in the middle of the lawn and I think it causes drainage problems that mean the turf around the edges of the garden does not grow well. Also, the soil is not very good, and there are lots of weeds.

It will only cost me about $500 to returf the whole garden with sod (about 120sq metres) - is it worth the effort to dig up the exiting grass and flatten out the whole thing, or should I just seed it (I can live with the bump - I don't want a cricket pitch).

frequent mowing and fertilizing. You might seek out the advice of a landscape contractor, to get an idea of your other optionsand costs. Again, the amount of sun/shade and type of soil will impact the results.
