We brought our house a few months ago and the side yard is pretty much all weed and little grass. Half the "grass" is missing and it's just dirt patches. Is there anyway of getting it back to a healthy grass without having to re-turf (our long term plan). I really hate looking at it atm, it's so hard to maintain too. Our lab is in the same yard so she probably isn't helping.
So is there anyway to get a healthy yard/grass back?

Do you have at least 5 hours of sun a day on it? If so I would start by pulling out all the weeds and leave lawn to give it space to grow. Water every day. See how it goes. Then if it hasnt grown I would suggest buying a roll of turf and break apart by hand and plant in gaps. Really soak it every day. I really think the trick is having at least 5 hours a day of sun

In summer we get 5 hours sun but being Tassie we don't get that much through out the year.
I'm going to get some quote on putting new turf in today just and see what my options are.

We're in a rental and recently had grass seed 'sewn' in the backyard- before that it was a mess of weeds.
I recently put in a report that there is still little grass and a lot of weeds (and this was after a landscaper did all the work!) and we were told that the landscaper would come back and look at doing a 'weed and feed'- which is apparently a process of using particular pesticides to kill the weeds but then feed the grass at the same time?
IDK, I'm no expert gardener but it may be something worth looking into?
