What to do?
I started off this spring aerating and overseeding my lawn. I had some rough patches from the extreme heat and sun last year and it needed done. After reading more, I realized I should have waited until this coming fall to overseed for various reasons
The brown on the grass from the picture is from when we finished our retaining wall last weekend, and a little acid pee from the damn dog.
The lawn now looks decent, however, there are a small amount of mushrooms and a little crabgrass growing. I used organic fertilizer when I first overseeded, which was early April, and again on Memorial Day weekend.
My questions are:
Would it be beneficial for me to continue to apply organic fertilizer again on the 4th of July and again in the fall?
Should I go the route of overseeding again this fall to help out the patches that have yet to come back yet and continue with the organic fertilizer?
Or should I lay some synthetic fall fertilizer last thing in the fall to offset the crabgrass from coming back next year?
I live in Nebraska and used a sun and shade mix mostly consisting of fescue and bluegrass.
Sorry for the newbie question. Thanks for the help.
