My lawn is a total mess with no grass and all weeds. Based on what I read September is great time to seed. I live in Northern New Jersey. Spoke with one landscape contractor, he wants to do the following : Use a harley rake over the lawn to remove weeds, lay top soil for grading where needed, fertilize and seed(recommends Kentucky Blue Grass). Meeting with other contractors early next week for estimates and proposal. My thought was to spray weed killer, wait two weeks then u can fertilize and seed.
Any thoughts on the right approach ?
