If you want to start all over again, rent a rototiller and till the entire area, then rake out all the debris. Spread 4-5 inches of organic matter such as compost over the area and till it in, then rake the area level. Seed the area, covering the seeds with a thin layer of peat moss or sand and keep it moist by watering several times a day. The seeds should germinate within a week. Good luck with your project!
