Unkept lawn for 4 years Destroyed by moles.
I have an almost flat corner lot on 3.5 acres, no/little trees.
We moved in two weeks ago and I cut the whole yard. What a task I tell you...
Waist height grass for the most part besides half of the front yard and 100ft around the back and sides.
So I mowed it all with the deck all the way up on my JD 200 series tractor and I'm scalping the grass all over the place because it was over ran by moles. All moles are off the property now.
Not to mention its a very very bumpy ride, got bruises on both of my legs from smashing into the dash.
I would like to try to smoothen this out myself. I know its a very big task but something has to be done.
I might go buy a rear walk behind tiller and a landscape rake and try to smoothen it out throughout the year.
Ill till down 3-4 inches and level it from there and I'm well aware about dormant weed seeds I may bring up but if this will make my lawn flatter I'm all for it as long as it grows greenish.
Thoughts about this? Ideas?
I don't really want to pay someone to do this because 50% of the yard needs help not the whole thing.
