which Marathon/dandelion questions
I am completely new at lawns.
Is there a way to tell which kind of Marathon grass you have? My friend's gardener told her that's what she has, but I was looking around here, and there seem to be several kinds of Marathon. And, does it matter? She lives in Orange County.
I am trying to help with a dandelion problem, which I never noticed until this year. I've been trying to pull them when I get a chance, and meanwhile, we try to pick the flowers.
Should we spray? How many dandelions do you have to have, to make that be the right choice? I am worried about whether we already reached a tipping point. Most likely, I guess we will spray.
She already knows she needs to water less often and feed the lawn, too. Would that be likely to take care of the dandelions? (There's some clover too.)
Also, I had an idea of growing a flat of grass and putting in little plugs where I dig out the dandelions, but, problem is, it's hard to get all of the root even though I try. Would a dandelion root be able to beat up a plug of grass?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
