I plan on purchasing an acre of land that is in a wooded area. The tenant died 2 years ago, and no one has mowed or tended to it at all. It is impossible to walk around the whole property but from what I can see, there is very little grass, if any, and tons of tall weeds and bushy weeds have taken over. We plan on getting a brush hog in there to initially cut it all down because it's nothing our mower can handle.
My question is: then what? I have always rented and really have no idea how to revamp a yard like this. Do I have to kill off all of the weeds with Round-up? Will this kill grass or other plants that I want to keep? Nearly the whole acre is covered in weeds,so how do I cover such a large area? Then how do I get new grass growing?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
