i got to kill the grass and weeds to start over, any ideas?
Hi Rosye, are you looking for something to kill the grass and weeds? This is what we use:
Before you kill all, are you going to plant a new lawn? If you are, make sure what you are using will not sterilize the soil. I would mix in some good top soil, also.
Cardboard will kill grass if you lay it down for some time. You just need to weigh it down for some time.

Hi Rosye: If you use a grass killer, you may have to wait a while before you replant. If you use vinegar - lots of it - you only have to wait for a couple days or a week, especially if it rains. Sounds like a lot of work. Are you certain that a good weed and feed wouldn't be a better idea? It may take longer, but won't be quite as much work. Are you planning on sodding?

Use a weed killer spray, or use a turf lifter to remove the compacted grass area, and place in a skip! Enjoy the process.
If you use a weed killer, you will ruin the soil for a season. You could add topsoil and then start this year b
Please avoid chemicals, they’re so bad for you and your yard. Try newspaper or cardboard. You could also rent a rototiller and turn everything over.
We sprayed everything with Roundup or any weed and grass killer then read directions on bottle usually you can replant in several days ~ I walked around the yard and drew out where I wanted flower beds or what I planned to do with certain areas and we worked on things a little at a time - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2h7aY_n8No
