Ugly lawn fix


My backyard lawn isn't doing to well. It's a bit lumpy and the grass is spotty. I don't know if thatching will help. There seems to be a lot of leaves in the lawn. Is there a machine I can rent to help out. Or maybe I need to hire a gardener to do thatching and hole punching?

I used a rake on a few parts of the grass as shown in the photos. One area near the house was just dead grass.

Re: Ugly lawn fix


Most grasses don't develop thatch and those that do can be addressed with a core aeration. I would also advise a soil test.

Re: Ugly lawn fix


The long strands may be crabgrass.
