Hello - brand new homeowner here and lawn care virgin!
The previous owners of my home removed a swimming pool and filled it in with crappy dirt and rocks. You can see a line across my yard where grass just stops growing and dirt begins.
I don't even know where to start to fix this. I've been scouring the internet and am overwhelmed by options - soil, compost, sodding, tilling, aerating. I've even called landscapers, but I can't seem to get any of them to call me back, so I'm at a loss now!
A little background - I'm in south eastern Massachusetts, the yard has some sun coverage, but the area in need of some TLC is in the center and not close to the outer edges where trees are. The area is also a little lower than the rest of the yard, and with the large amount of rain we've gotten over the last few weeks, the area pools with water quickly, but has dried out.
Can anyone offer some recommendations for a beginner like me? What other info do you need?
