Hello My yard is a nightmare. I have dense shade, high traffic, and compacted soil. There is nothing I can do about the shade because it is from the neighbors trees. I have installed pathways to walk on. And tilling is out because of the lines that run through my yard. I have had luck getting grass seed to grow; however, it doesn't last. At one point I hired one of those "lawn care professionals". All they managed to do was kill the weeds that were growing which made the problem worse. I would pay just to have the weeds back! Do you have any suggestions on how to turn my mud pit back into a decent lawn?
