Hi, I have a lawn that has been damaged by my two dogs (15kg and 28kg - mainly in the winter I think), it now sports several large divots, this is compounded by a lack of care over the years, the lawn been hacked at for various reasons and wee patches.
I am looking for the quickest solution to make a nice lawn (I accept that I wont have a perfect lawn lawn due to the lack of time I can spend looking after it and the dogs).
I have previously tired throwing down some seed and patching holes with soiI, but that was a massive fail.
I have considered trying to use pre grown lawn bought in rolls and laying that. I have also considered digging over the whole lawn and re-sowning it from scratch.
My questions are
1. how long does it take for the rolled lawn to take and can it accept being used during that time?
2. would the pre rolled lawn be the best option for this situation, if not what would be an quick and effective way of "getting a new lawn"?
3. how do I avoid the issue with yellow patches due to dogs wee?
