OMG, i killed my lawn...
First time home owner and have a regular size lawn. (about 2k sqft)
The house has inground sprinkler system, and i have it on on the Even Days, 3AM, and cycle runs for about 3 hours across different valve heads.
I mowed my lawn for the first time after getting a gas mower from Sears. (First time using a lawn mower as well), and i thought i did a pretty good job with it. There were weeds here and there so i went to home depot and picked up a Roundup Pump Sprayer.
I sprayed it all over my lawn and finished hte entire bottle (1.33 gallon). The next day, i started to see the grass turning brown and yellow with some kind of line pattern, which follows the way when i spray the entire lawn.
I then looked at the bottle again, and realized that it is a weed AND GRASS killer. I hit myself in the head and then water the lawn more often, hoping that these product dont work as good. 3 days later, alot more line pattern shown yellow / dry grass. I went to home depot and bought Miracle Grow lawn food with water sprayer and spray 2 bags of those lawn food over the entire lawn just earlier this evening.
Now here comes my question,
what can i do to save the lawn without killing it?
how do i make the dry/brown grass come back?
If i water it more often and give food to it more often, will it help? If so, which brand/what type please.
The lawn looks pretty awful now, as it has sporadic spots with dry/yellow grass. :(
Please help. I dont know much about lawn care, and just started reading on it. I do not know what type of grass it is either. I live in NYC suburbs, so i think its one of those grass that grew commonly in the north east.
Thanks in advance.
