Weeds overtaking my lawn
I recently bought a property and the lawn looks pretty bad, one of the worst in the neighborhood. In the backyard I get quite a bit of morning shade since the area backs to the woods. I do get late morning to mid afternoon sun. In the backyard the weeds are doing fine and the grass looks like it's dying in the heat of the summer. I was thinking of putting part shade, part sun grass mix in the backyard. I don't know if I should wait until mid September and use a spreader to lay it down. Is it a good idea to spread grass seed on the weeds and brown grass? The front yard look better but is getting worse with clover and other weeds growing more vigorously. I did the Scotts weed and feed once but it looks like it did very little. I might get a lawn care specialist to spray the lawn next. I'm not sure where to start. Help is appreciated.
