My first lawn :) Tips? Hints??
For 30 years my lawn has been more weeds than grass but, being located on an old farmstead, it "worked". Plus there was too much other work to worry about it.
We are now finishing a home in zone 7b, and our irrigation system and sod have recently been installed. The builder told us that we should use the local lawn-care service because "driving around here in the summer, it's very obvious who uses a service and who does their own lawn". That's the kind of pompous attitude that puts my teeth on edge. Plus, I enjoy working outside.
This has strengthened my resolve to do it myself and to be organic, as well.
I have had very good results with Garden's Alive products in my vegetable and flower gardens, and would like to use their spring and fall formulations of Lawns Alive this year and see how it works out.
Should I use a broadcast or a drop spreader? I've not had any experience with these.
Also, what else should I be doing with an actual grass lawn? Any and all advice will be welcomed!
