How can I remove traces of a previously laid path of crazy paving from my lawn. I removed all of the paving and had a top quality lawn laid by a professional company.I have a 2 year old turf laid lawn with three lines of brownish grass where the old path was. It soils my lawn. Thanks. Rita.



your going to have to get a piece of polythene to put the top layers of grass and cut them like a turf with a sharp spade .move this and cut down to the old path and dig it out realy . level it and re-lay your turf . try and get this done farely quickly and now ish . theres know easy way with this im afraid .

That would indicate something's been left behind and is affecting the grass - the only way is to re excavate where the brown areas are and see what's under there that may be causing the problem.

Could be crushed stone leveling, could be weed mat, could be some kind of chemical weed preventer--some sterilize the soil for years, though liberal applications of compost will ameliorate that.
