Need advice in renovating lawn in SW Ga
Just bought a house in SW GA, zone 8. I am an avid gardener, but have never before had such a bad lawn! Previous owner allowed weeds to take over. The crabgrass has already sprouted.
Normally, this time of year I would spray the lawn with 2-4-D and follow up 2 weeks later with Atrazine. This lawn is so bad, I don't know if this spray schedule would be my best option. I would like to overseed at some point. Not sure if I can overseed soon or wait until the fall.
I would REALLY appreciate advice on renovating this lawn. What sort of plan would you recommend to renovate this lawn? I realize it will take some time to get it into shape.
