I also like the granule stuff, I find sprays much harder to use and messy.

If you stuck with it and mowed high throughout the summer you should start seeing results within the next few weeks (if not already). End of summer isnt just football weather, its grass weather.

Also, if you want to aerate and over seed your yard now is the time to do it. But if you aerate and over seed, know that you cant really put down any weed preventers/killers. So you have to decide if you'd rather control weeds or introduce more grass. If you want more grass, I would say DC area people have 7 days or so days left of the optimal time period to put seed down. Probably an extra week for Richmond and VA Beach.

Make sure it rained leading up to the aeration or that you water the shit out of your yard the night before you get it done. When I put some seed down last year I finally had good results with "GREENVIEW SEED ACCELERATOR", after struggling with lots of other fertilizers.

I might have mentioned this earlier, but something to remember is that there are no indigenous perennial grasses in the mid-Atlantic. Before America was called America, there was nothing but weeds in this area. So unless you want to spend a TON of time and money, pretty good from 15 feet is what you should be aiming for.
thanks! Iam going weed and feed and fill some patches from my female dog burned over the summer with seed.

Yeah, OTM, it's right up there with one of the Mods (won't say who, but his initials are 'S' and 'S') posting that his Veyron broke down on the way to the private airport for a Mod's only meeting in Nassau.

Turns out he'd had the engine converted to burn rare works of art as a fuel source and it ran rough on a Seurat.

This may or may not be a complete lie.

2- i alos take offense to the thread title. it is clearly a thinly vailed attempt to draw attention to the fact that you own a lawn by disguising it as some "woe is me" tale of lawn ownership and the ensuing responsibility. enjoy the fact that you own a lawn because some asshole like me will get drunk and lay passed out on it while you drive to work wondering whether to call the police.
3- dont pee on your own lawn. pee on your freaking fence. not only does it not leave a dead grass circle it also marks your territory and border for any intruding bugs, etc
4-i cant wait to own a lawn. ive owned some decks and rented some lawn area but never owned my own lawn. highly looking forward to it.
5-im a big fan of super skin. he hits on the right note of cheesy comic book physical comedy bravado.

That just means you're too drunk to operate a lawnmower, therefore no lawn.
