Post #9065692

Hello all, I have been gardening - mostly ornamentals in beds - for many yearsI normally don't care too much about my lawn in terms of weeds, etc., but my lawn is really not looking good at all; it's bald in places and has crabgrass, oniongrass and other weeds the green areas. The ground is packed hard as well. I'd like to "start over."
I would like to go native if possible (Indian grass?) and I do not want to use chemical herbicides. I believe I will need to eradicate the emerging green stuff (mostly weeds) by flaming or other method? I am considering planting a cover crop of clover or other Spring-sown cover.
I am new to Dave's Garden and have read some forum threads. I would love to know if anyone has had success in starting over with their lawn by using a cover crop.
