One year we tore up the entire lawn and re-planted.

But I also once lived in a place where there was so little sunlight that only weeds would grow, so everyone just had weed-lawns. (It was also in a trailer park. Man that shit was classy)

We pay someone to come weed and feed ours. Although we do have a nasty patch of crab grass in the terrace that needs to be addressed.

@ajillity81:  I know how you feel! We bought our first home a year ago and the previous owner didn’t take care of the yard at all (granted he was living alone and in his 90s, so it’s understandable). It was covered in moss and weeds. So we had everything taken up, soil brought in and planted the grass seed. For the most part it looks good, but there are areas where there is so much crabgrass, if we killed it all we wouldn’t have any grass in that area. It’s frustrating especially since we started from scratch but I’m definitely going to try getting rid of it.
