Is my backyard lawn worth saving?What kind of grass do I have?
This is my first post, and I do not have any experience in taking care of my lawn at all. We've had to sod our backyard three times because we never really cared about taking care of our grass .But this year I decided to try and create a lawn that I can be proud of and save my dad a few bucks so we dont have to sod the backyard again. The issue is, I'am not sure how to save it and what to do. At the beginning of April I dethatched, fertilized and added topsoil. But after not watering for a few weeks, the grass has been taken over by weeds. I have began watering the grass regularly, and I've been waking up around 7am to being watering. I'm not sure what to do, I don't even know what kind of grass we have. Does it need more TLC and watering or do I need to begin reseeding. I also have no idea how to deal with the weeds besides pulling them out by hand. Please any advice will be helpful because I just began taking care of the grass this year.
