The new house we bought this past fall seems to have an upper back yard and a lower one. There is about a 2' down grade towards the back. This back land looked like a desert when we moved in. Cracked and barren. Now there is a bit of grass growing here and there but now it is a mud pit. We would like to be able to utilize our new back yard. Not sure if it's clay soil. Can it be improved? Lots of trees and roots, so it would be nearly impossible to rototil. Would a drain help? I hope someone has information that will enable us to grow a lovely yard. Thanks

Hi littlesoul2002,

I can understand that you want to do the work yourself. How 'bout spending SOME $$$ and hire a Landscaper (or a Landscape Architect) to come up w/a plan. That's usually done on an hourly basis. I think about 4 hours of work, +/- would suffice. A few 100 $$$s goes a long, LONG way.

Sorry, but I can't see the lot from here. My best to ya and hope this helps.
