    .....is not what this thread is about.

    Instead, I would like some helpful tips on how to grow a good lawn this year. Any suggestions? So what do people do? Do you fertilize? Is aeration a hoax? What about weed control? What is the cheapest most effective method?

    Sorry about the tease, but I need input here!! 😠

    Then I say invest it in a penny stock and wait/hope that it takes off and in the meantime live with the lawn you've got.

    rake out all the thatch(dead dried grass) gently fork it about 3 inches in a row all over lawn may help if you water before forking(makes it easier)when dry apply 1 coat weed and feed cost about £5.00 to cover 80m2 leave for a few days and hope for rain,no rain then water in keep your mower set at medium if its set low it scalps the grass if its set high it allows it to become damp allowing moss to take over....good luck

    I allow a whole group of lesbians to have constant sex on my lawn during the month of March. My lawn always comes out immaculate. Something about what they do really works that sod into the soil. 🙂

    Fertilizing and overseeding is the easiest (and probably the most effective) way of getting a great looking lawn. Most people know about fertilizing so I won't get into that. About once a week spread grass seed evenly over your lawn and then water your lawn. Doesn't take very long, do this once a week for a few weeks and before you know it you'll be cursing me because of all the time you're spending cutting the grass... but you'll be spending less time weeding, because the grass will actually crowd out the weeds.

    Always water your lawn after seeding or fertilizing.


    By the way, I almost skipped passed this thread because of the title. 😕

    Simplest and cheapest path to a decent lawn is mow short and mow often.
    That will get rid of your weeds and encourage dense grass.
    You can leave short clippings on your lawn.
    Grass is pretty drought resistant - it wont look pretty brown but
    will recover quickly so don't worry if you forget to water sometimes.

    Of course if your current lawn is in a bad state you will have to get
    rid of all the thatch, moss and weeds first. 🙁
