I am lost here but I found out how to post here.
when I was 27 I bought a little shack in a city and thought I would have a garden
and a nice lawn. Well, when I got home one day the slugs ate the few strawberries I grew and that was it I quit gardening. I kept buying lots of lawn seed especially at costco, huge bags of seed but still my lawn is very brown and sparse with grass because there are a few grass shoots growing.
My dream is to have a lawn before I die, like the rich people have but I live in a poor part of the city. I have a pitch fork for making hole in the ground to do it manually, I have shovels and rakes. etc. and a drum that you can fill with water and go over the soil to make it flat and compact. I grew up in Northern Canada and I lived with my parents in a trailer on 4 lots full of equipment but there was nothing growing in the 4 lots. I am now 64 and starting from scratch. I need help to do what is right in growing. The front yard is 30 feet by 50 feet facing looking out the window of the house I face north. The back of the property has a smaller lawn because there is a garage as big as my tiny shack so my grass there is 22 feet by 15 feet wide. I have probably given you all the wrong stuff so you can help me. I am not sure how I will find your answer to this post because I am not sure how this forum works. I have been told that the fall is the best time to fix the lawn and i have huge bag of new seeds from costxo so hopfully I can to something right. Cheers, and thanks for any feedback.
