Advice please. Our lawn has been drilled and tunnelled by moles again this year and a combination of very dry weather followed by sudden downpours and then more dry weather has meant their tunnels have collapsed leaving mini trenches across large areas.
To add to the joy one of the dogs is a terrier and sits next to the tunnels and holes waiting to hear movement and then digs so there are head sized holes in the trenches.
It is unsightly, dangerous to walk on and uncomfortable to mow.
OH thinks we should put gravel down in the tunnels to deter the moles (as if!) and then top up with our own precious garden compost and reseed in September.
I think we should buy some soil based potting compost and fill the holes and trenches now and hope the grass will recover and seed it in September anyway.
Opinions please on the best way to recover our lawn.
