Scott's 4 step program

Is that the best stuff for lawn care? Is there anything better? I am trying to fight some weed, using TrueGreen, but it seems with each application that TrueGreen does, it gets worse. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The best way to deal with weeds depends on what kind of weeds you have. For broadleaf weeds, like dandelions, application of a product like Weed B Gone with a tank sprayer is the best option. Unless the lawn is really full of them, spot treatment is more effective and uses less chemicals than applying a weed n feed type product.

Hi Dan,
Healthy soil equals healthy turf grass which allows for less weeds. Feed the soil organic matter such as a topdressing of 1/4" of compos in the spring and fall and the worms will mix it in for you. The gras will be healthier and grow thicker allowing less weeds to take hold. I would need to be a different mindset if you are interested. You can us organics like corn gluten as a pre-emergent that also feeds the roots o the grass and won't harm beneficial microbes in the soil.

getting pretty scrubby and lots of crab grass (broadleaf). At the end of last year I hated the results as they really didn't look much better than what I was trying to correct. I talked to the Scotts mgr and he stated that based on the orginal condition I should really wait until after the winter (New England) and then let them know if I wish to resume in the spring. Ha! I said. This can't get much worse so it certainly won't get any better.
Well, as you might have guessed, the winter hybernation must have done something to the grass as this spring I had NO broadleaf and my grass looks nice and even with a dark green lush color like in their ads.
So they have been continuing treatment this year and most likely next.
Just my $.02 worth.
