Saving my muddy lawn

Posted: 09/03/2016 at 19:10

What we are thinking of doing is forking the lawn and spreading sand and possibly lawn  fertiliser into it,then re-seed with the dogs off the grass.

Does this sound right?

Saving my muddy lawn

Can anybody with lawn expertise give me some advice please.

I have two dogs who have ruined my grass by constantly running around and playing. How can I save the lawn so my children can use it and so I can have an aesthetically pleasing view from the kitchen.

I have clay soil and it has been really wet this winter resulting in lots of muddy paws


 The green bit at the bottom is artificial lawn left over from my parents garden. This is not an option,neither is turf.

Any ideas are helpful. It could be a verbascum,I'll keep an eye on it as it's crowding out a lavender.

I think the leaves are too big,and it has grown too quickly for it to be a primrose.

My total came to £22. What on earth did you get for that? In my order there was a few for 2.99 and one for 3.69,you must have bought the ones they specifically breed.
