I'm located in southern Ontario. Last summer was so hot, and so dry, nearly my entire back yard died, roots and all it seems. Now the entire yard is nothing but patchy, mostly just dirt.
I'm not sure where to start really. The entire yard needs an overhaul. I planted some cedars along the fence, and almost all of them died as well.
I've posted a picture below. The hill at the back just will not grow grass. I'm thinking of making a small wall at the base and just making it an easy to maintain garden on the entire hill.
Does anyone have some thoughts as to where to start? Just seed now? Till up the entire yard and start over?
