I did the same about a year ago and the grass still won't grow there; any ideas how to rehabilitate that bit of lawn or is it time for brick paving. We could turn this forum into "Home and Garden" yet. :s6:

Aussieblue, if the grass hasn't rejuvinated in a year me thinks it's time to concrete. :crazy1: :crazy1:
