There may be hope for both the front and backyards. If there is any grass at all, it will respond to good care. Regular watering, feeding and mowing can rejuvenate a lawn. Lawns need about an inch of water per week, applied slowly so it has a chance to soak down and wet the entire root area. You can rake and overseed any bare areas and the new grass will sprout in a week or two, depending upon the weather. Most lawns will green right up when fed. Use a 3-1-2 ratio of NPK and feed in April, June, September and late November. Best wishes with your lawn!
