southern California lawn needs help
Hey everyone, first post here. So we recently purchased a new home in southern California. I just got done redoing the sprinkler system to achieve adequate coverage. That's all set now. The problem is the lawn is in pretty bad shape. Weeds here and there, a few different types of grass in certain areas and one corner that has this weird weedy ground cover coming up. Covers around 20-30 Sq ft mixed in with the grass. The soil has a lot of clay in it. The grass areas that are alright are in pretty good shape I guess. Fescue I'm guessing. I'm just wondering if I should rip it all out and start from scratch or if it's salvageable. Should I use sod or seed? I never seem to get great results with seeding, never comes in full and even. Should I add something to the soil? Kind of a Newby when it comes to grass. Any advise is appreciated. Thanks!
