Several things come into play when considering weed control options. One of the easiest things to do is to raise mowing height to 3-4 inches. The soil is shaded and therefore stays cooler. The taller grass also provides more cover, which reduces the chances of undesirable plant growth. If weeds are already a problem, we recommend spraying with Speedzone®. Speedzone® is a broad spectrum herbicide that controls most broadleaves. If crabgrass is the issue, apply a crabgrass preventer when soil temps reach 55 degrees, approximately early May. If you have other undesirable species, such as Brome and/or Quackgrass, then please accept our condolences. You don’t have a lot of options other than spraying out with glyphosate and starting over.

That depends on how much pride you take in your lawn, which products you choose to use and how much money you want to spend. Most people are typically fertilizing 3 times per year.

Apply a crabgrass preventer in the spring, followed by a turf builder in early June, and then winterize in late August or early September.

No, feel free to fertilize at any time, as long as it is straight fertilizer. If applying fertilizer with weed control, see Question 2.
Yes and no. Please see recommendations in Question 3.
That really depends. If establishing a new lawn, water frequently with a shorter duration. The goal is to not let the top dry out. Once the grass is 1-2 inches tall, reduce watering frequency and raise the duration. Eventually, you will be watering 2-3 times per week during the summer months; typically 15 minutes for smaller zones and up to 40 minutes for large zones. TIP: If it rains a lot, you don’t need to water.
This is based on the seeds/lb of different species and the characteristics of each plant type. Some spread and fill in better than others.
Yes. You reduce compaction and allow the roots more room to grow, which makes for a healthier lawn over- all. We recommend aerating your yard once every year.
Ideally 3-4” mowing height. Most people mow their lawns way too short, and then fight weeds and use extra water to keep them looking good, or just give up.
