I need help with my yard. The people who had the house before me didnt take care of the yard so it is a mess. I know that I have to airrate my yard in August or September but I want to kill all these weeds first. Someone said get "Killall" or something to that affect. It kills all the hard to kill weeds and crap...ANy suggestions?!

I bought that weed and feeed and it did a good job for a while but they came back after a couple of months.. Ill even hire a company to come out!!!

Si lol sorry that was wrong....

Im sure there are plenty of women on the site that will come weed your yard for you....gotta be good for something right?.....lol damn that was even more wrong

Had the same problem when my parents moved into daleshitty, went to pitkins and the people there knew their stuff...dont remember the chemicals and all...but they knew what they needed and after that had a great lawn......I belive the biggest problem were the ants and other misc bugs that are in the ground were killin the grass.....so I guess start there?
Good luck!

Scotts Turf Builder +2 is the shiznit. Spread early in the morning when the dew is still on the grass (so the treatment actually sticks to it rather than just being blown away). Disregard the directions; spread twice a week for 2-3 weeks. Then spread some good topsoil where all the dead weeds are, spread some grass seed (I like the fine fescue), spread some lime over that, then some 10-10-10.

Only problem you'll have after that is mowing it too much. Water early in the morning, not at night. At night the water won't evaporate and cause mildew which in turn invites bugs to your yard.

Tune in next week when we learn how to properly mulch to avoid root rot and getting impatients to flurish in the sun, here on DCSBN.
