I'm in Texas, have a small front lawn of mostly weeds, several varieties. Lawn faces due west.
Next door to the north is a large lot of mostly weeds, which the owner occasionally mows.
As I refuse to use any chemicals and have treated some weeds with vinegar (it works!), someone came out and said it's going to be pretty impossible to get my lawn weed-free (even IF we applied chemical weed-killers) because the seeds from the lot blow right into my yard, as winds are often from the north or west. And when they mow, the weed cuttings are blown right over here!
I believe this is true because the opposite side of the lawn which is shielded by the house is very green grass.
So what I've about decided to do is just go out there and pour on about 3 bags of grass seeds, water, and hope it grows and overtakes the weeds.
My question is this: On the bags of these "quick grow" seeds which are a mix of different grasses, it says it provides "temporary" grass cover - what does that mean?
Does it mean the grass won't grow back in next year? But it WILL cover nicely this year?
