How to maintain problem area during year in prep for fall oversee

johngood5(7)April 22, 2011

90% of the yard is fantastic. A few areas of the yard are thin, some from high traffic location, some from previous owner neglect, shady areas, etc. I plan to overseed this fall, heavily in those problem areas. The trouble areas are some grass with mostly clover, broadleaf, and the usual suspects. How do I keep these areas under control without affecting a fall overseeding schedule?

I am in the same boat. I hit the yard with some Lesco dimension + fertilizer to keep the crabgrass away and ive been spot spraying weeds with Weed b gon and using my "weed hound" to take out the dandelions. Anyone see any problems with this??
