Greetings from Vancouver Island! I just bought a half duplex and have noticed that the neglected sodded lawn is quite muddy, weedy and lumpy. I could rip up the sod, level and seed but I share the unfenced front lawn with a neighbor. I had planned to weed and feed in about 10 days, lay down a top coat of soil and seed. Most importantly I am looking for any advice on what seed might absorb some of the moisture from the sod and make my lawn less muddy and more kid play friendly. Any advice in regards to repairing this Muddy, Weedy, and lumpy yard appreciated, thx in advance.
