|A thick, healthy lawn will crowd out weeds so the best approach is to rake out the bare patches, overseed, then put your lawn on a regular maintenance schedule of watering, mowing and feeding. Once the new seed is up and growing, mow consistently through the spring, summer and fall months, keeping the grass blades about 2 1/2 inches high. Mow often enough that you never have to remove more than one third of the blade height. You can leave the clippings on the lawn or bag them - either way is fine for your lawn. Plan to feed your lawn in April, June, September and late November. Lawns need deep watering once or twice a week, depending upon weather. By summer it should be thick and healthy enough to crowd out any invading weeds. |
When you choose flowers, choose those that grow best under the conditions your yard offers - full sun/part sun/ full shade, etc.
Best wishes with your landscape.
