I bought a house a couple months ago and I don't know anything about garden care but trying to learn Smiling My front yard in a great shape but backyard is bad. I think I have a mole problem and more than green grass I have weed. I am so ready to start to take care of my garden with some help. I just don't know where to start. I am planning on buying scotts grubex and tomcat mole worms. I will also apply Southern Ag 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer and for some areas I will use Compare-N-Save Concentrate Grass&Weed Killer to install new sod. What are the steps? Can I use grubex first then a couple days later use weed killer and wait a week then install sod. Would it work?

Thank you Here some photos. I am open to any suggestions.

In my opinion, and Iam no expert, spraying chemicals like grass and weed killer are going to kill your sod when you lay it down. Personally I wouldn't do it.

Best of luck!!! 😀

Thank you for your answer Mindi. I was planning on waiting like 10 days to install sod after I apply weed killer. I might seed instead of sod. I haven't decided yet.

I would consider getting a soil test, than try to enhance your current lawn.

Lots of good info for your area
