Howdy y'all need a little help getting my lawn in tip top shape. I've lived in the house a little over a year. I mowed the lawn once a week last summer. Grass grew really well. It just didn't look like the rest of the lawns in the neiborhood. Other yards seemed more green and the grass looked (softer) if I had to describe it haha. Well now that's it getting a little warmer pushing the 60's here I've got alot of weeds. A couple spots with dark green leafy tuffs and the little weed Things with the purple flower/ bulb.
So where should I start? I need to mow it since it hasn't been mowed since the middle of September but I feel I should spray the weeds first. I don't know what will kill the weeds but not the grass. Then after my weeds are gone. What should I do too bring my lawn to that nice healthy green look? So far what little research I've gathered I wished I would of thought of this back in the fall. I appreciate any help. I'll post some pics later to better give y'all an idea of where I'm at.
