I'm re-seeding my dads commercial property (just a long narrow stip along a sidewalk with a few trees). I can rent equiptment to do this. The lawn is far gone... It's in the ghetto, dumped on etc. About 1/3 of it is dead and about 40% of it is weeds. Some of it has tire ruts that i cant mow over because of the irregularities.
Heres what im thinking:
Rototill the bad spots. Just blast right over the alive and dead grass, hopefully even out a few of the irreqularities. Moisten the soil, throw down seed, and be done with it (and water properly of course). It doesnt have to be terribly pretty, its commercial and in a bad area. It just has to be better than what it is!
I've never used a roto-tiller before, nor seeded, so ide like to hear some advice.
