one section of my grass is full of dandelions i dont think there is any grass left whats the best way to get rid of the dandelions and bring it back to nice green grass?



If its that thick with dandelions, dig the area and remove all roots of the dandelions, and I mean all, don't leave any behind, rake over and level, tamp down and put some seed down. Or turf, if its a large area.

I've got the same problem lots of dandelions, i do'nt want to reseed yet, digging them up is the best way, i keep on top of them with a table spoon of salt put in the crown of the dandelion ( on a dry day)

Good idea HChristy - as far as I'm concerned, borders and beds need to be pretty deep to get effective planting.
