The next time you have clear sunny weather predicted for 5 days or so, rush down to the home improvement center and purchase some weed and feed. Sprinkle it on the lawn in the amounts listed on the package. It will need the 4 or 5 days without rain to be absorbed by the weeds. If it rains, the weed killer washes it off of the weeds and it won’t kill them.

After five days, water heavily if you don’t get rain. You will notice the weeds will grow profusely and then die when their folage gets larger than the roots can support. Don’t cut the lawn until the weeds start to die.

Wait two weeks and then over seed with new lawn grass seed. Keep the lawn damp until the new seed is tall enough to mow.

I do this every year to keep a thick lush green lawn without weeds.

I have noticed that the time you mow your yard is very important…
The best time is just before a rain… this will keep it from drying out or getting burned from being cut when wet…. Its not fertilizer but it works…
Hope that helps a bit… Good luck! ( =

know what type of grass it is (cool or summer grass ) next get a soil test this will tell you your ph and nutrient levels this will also tell you how much fertilizer and lime you need you can have this done at your local aug. office or some green houses can help

Fertilizing time after time can leave your ground compacted and it can also make the nutrients in the soil unavailable to your lawn. Rent or have your lawn aerated to help to relieve and speed watering and fertilizer results. Also if you can vigorously rake your lawn and produce dead grass then dethacth or vigorously and remove the dead grass before aerating. Lastly you might consider using a TRUE slow release fertilizer(organic fertilizer). I am not a environmentalist but organic fertilizers can loosen compaction, unlock nutrients currently unavailable and provide a consistent supply of nitrogen… for that green look. Lastly if you water do it 2 or 3 times a weed depending on lawn needs and do it in the morning to prevent disease and insects. heavy watering less frequent produces a deep root system and a deep root system feeds lawn better ENJOY YOUR LAWN
