I am digging up my grass (or shall I say weeds) in the backyard of my new (new to me) house. I would like to have a grass path with flagstone eventually but right now there are just really old bricks (not nice ones) with weeds growing between them...so up they come. Every night I go home and annally dig up the grass, shake out the dirt, put aside and mix new soil with what I have salvaged. I now have a nice pile of grass & weeds. My neighbors last night told me to just turn the grass upside down and put soil on top. I have heard of this but am afraid the grass will grow again after all my hard work.
