Backyard Help

Ok just bought a new house. Have a fairly good size back yard.

First I need to get rid of this ugly ass green grass stuff. Any ideas what it is or how to get rid of it?

Second what are some good ideas I could do with this space? I think i want to extend the patio area but am not sure how to incorporate the whole yard and make it look nice.

Third no pool.

What kind of grass is that ?


Hard to tell in the pic but it almost looks like st augustine that got some serious brown patch or new sod that was not watered enough or watered too much during cool weather that got brown patch.




Or is it just wild grass ?


You can rent a grass cutter that will scrape all the sod up and allow you to replant some nice grass if it is trash grass.

How big is the yard ?


Last time I bought st augustine you could get a pallet that covers 400 sq ft for about $100 -120. Measure up your square feet and call some different places for prices delivered.

whatever that "grass" is it comes up in winter, and it's dammed hard to kill. Fortunately, its easy to pull. I always get some of it in my yard. Treating with pre-emergent in the fall seems to take care of most of it.

Sounds like the grass you are speaking of is annual blue grass, all I can say is pull it before it seeds or you will be spraying MSMA on it this spring. Get a close up pic of the grass

Ill see about getting some better pics of it tomm.

My wife and I spent a few hours out there pulling them up. With a shovel we would hit the roots...then yank it up with the roots and all. hopefully that will prevent them from returning.

But damn theres alot of them. seems like we didnt even make a dent in them and filled a whole trash bag

You can hire professionals who will pick all the debris and level the surface, or if you have tine DIY as it seems not a tough job from the pics. And right, extending your concrete patio sounds a good idea to me! It will increase your outdoor living space and will be great for get togethers.

To get rid of the green grass I'd hire a landscaping company that does turf installation in your area. I got lucky when I ordered roof cleaning Seattle services because they referred me to a turf installation pro who worked for himself and gave me a great deal. Hope that helps!
