I have lived in in Georgia, France and Vermont. I have lived in and repaired tens of houses along the way. I have learned most of what I know from my mom, a true DIY-er. My experience runs from foundation work to faux painting to cabinet construction.

I don't think that he's having a hard time growing the grass, rather the type of grass he planted has out grown the old grass.

comment What is the easiest way to remove a large root in a post hole I'm digging?
@doresoom, I posted this answer, not as a direct response to this question but rather as a general way to get rid of roots. I find this tool to be one of the most effective tools in terms or ground work, but you are right, a strong back is required.

comment How do I stop backyard from flooding when it rains hard?
- This answer seems to be the most reoccuring question that I link to. In fact this answer is the second question on the FAQ. Not for views or votes but the number of times it has been linked to. I will post a question on meta suggesting we change the name of that question to better help new people identify that unless their situation posesses any unique detail, their question may have been already solved.
