I went out and mowed my lawn/weeds for the first time this season. OMG, it is so ugly! The lawn is surrounded by trees. I think it might be poor soil quality or something. It dries out easily. The lawn in one part has been taken over by clover. The lawn in the other part has been taken over by dandelions and moss.
I need to find something to kill the moss/clover/dandelions. Then I need to find some grass seed that will work in shade and low water requirements.
I have seen really nice grass growing in parks where it is obvious that they don’t do anything but mow it once in a while. There has got to be some sort of really hardy grass that will do well, that all I have to do is mow it.
I have read that raising my mower height might help. I have already raised my lawn mower height some. Maybe I should raise it a little more.
I also read that fertilizing might promote poor root growth, so to fertilize it less.
I have had a nice lawn at times. I would like to get it back.
Maybe I will run to Lowes.
