Steps For Better Lawn

Recommended Posts

I have a heavily used lawn that has a lot of thin spots and weeds. Would anyone be willing to give a rundown of steps and timing to get a yard shaped up. I think I have read on here that aeration is important in the fall and followed by overseeding. Just looking for some expertise as far as order, timing and importance of steps.

Sounds like you have a problem with compaction & would benefit from some aeration/overseeding.Check the seeding/pre-emergent thread for some good info

Where do you live? You need know the soil type. Is the area sunny, shady or a mix? Get a soil test done through the U Ag Extension service. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard...zer-management/

When I bought my house it was a mess. Took a class at a garden center and got things figured out. That year I fertilized four times, each with a different blend. Aerated in September, seeded, and then the last fertilizer was a winter mix with some phosphorus in it. Next year things were in great shape. Down to one feeding now in the spring with a crabgrass precenter and control the rest of the weeds with very sparse application of a weed killer out of a small spray bottle.

Spend some time searching the web, maybe see if you can find a class at a garden center.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
